STRATEGY

Stay Focused and Eliminate Distractions

As your business grows and seeks to expand into additional markets you need to focus on the implementation of your strategic plan. Being distracted by burdensome government regulations may disrupt and potentially delay achieving your goals. We focus specially on managing your government affairs and public relations, so they complement your efforts and prevent them from impending your overall growth and success.

PLANNING & MANAGING

Government Affairs

Leonine Ventures will develop and implement your government affairs strategy. Should you need to hire lobbyists we will oversee that process for you from start to finish and then manage your lobbying corps so you can focus on what’s truly important, your company. We have a proven track record of success including securing state contracts that are integral to your business’s growth. We are experienced in all aspects of state advocacy. Whether it’s influencing the legislature or engaging in a procurement process we can help.

SEAMLESS INTERGRATION

Public Relations

Out strength is our diversity and depth. Often businesses are burdened by needing to hire one firm for government affairs and another for public relations. We have a 30-year track record of managing media and community relations. The integration of government affairs and public relations under one roof ensures there is seamless integration between your government affairs and public relations efforts.

  • "Todd and the Leonine Ventures team have been critical to our early success. They helped pass a law creating the first Blockchain specific corporate designation in the country and ensured we won our first state contract providing the State of Vermont the only hemp track-and-trace system in the Nation. No matter how long you've been in business, their team can help."
