Built after the era of mobile and social proliferation, Dagger is designed to lead brands within today’s fast-moving, consumer-driven marketplace.
We believe that, to prosper, brands must behave more like media companies — innovating new ways to capture people’s attention by distributing culturally relevant content across all forms of media. Our underlying value is driven by our team culture, one stood up by modern ideals and brought to fruition by a talent pool wired for change. We drive our client’s business outcomes with strategic thinking and a fresh approach to video production, physical world activations, influencer marketing and more.
