Who We Are

Clutch is an established and rapidly growing startup, based in Dupont Circle, Washington DC. Our goal is to connect small and medium businesses with the agencies and software solutions that can help them accomplish their business goals.

How does this work?

Our analyst team compiles data on companies in an array of ever-expanding industries: advertising and marketing, web design and development, mobile app development, and IT services. This data includes in-depth interviews with the companies’ former clients and an evaluation of the services each company offers, market presence, and work quality.

The research is now the leading online source for ratings, and reviews of mobile application developers, marketing agencies, and designers.

Our marketing team designs surveys to collect and present data on industry trends, business habits, and consumer preferences.

In the past year, our marketing team doubled the amount of data-backed content published, earned media attention from key industry sites such as Inc., Entrepreneur, The Huffington Post, and The American Marketing Association, and launched a business news and how-to website, The Manifest. We’re on-pace to continue this trend throughout 2018.
