With more than 20 years of combined experience, we know what it’s like to be understaffed and under-resourced while facing complex tasks and immovable deadlines. At Workhorse, we help arts nonprofits and creative entrepreneurs tell engaging stories, solve organizational problems, grow sustainable revenue streams, and generally sleep better at night.
