LunarX Agency is entering its next phase by launching a new suite of wrap-around consulting services called ElevateX Business Ecosystem. The agency features five companies, including:
- LunarX Agency — an end-to-end design, digital marketing and technology agency.
- Qme Spotlight — a software development services agency.
- Eleviv Creative Agency — a creative services agency.
- Heartland Marketing — a digital marketing agency.
- Hunter Brand Consulting — a digital marketing agency.
LunarX founder Nate Dillard (who is also publisher and co-founder of Elevate Dayton) said now is the perfect time to bring together the different companies to form a collective.
“Our goal was to create a strategic alliance of five standout, Black-owned consulting agencies," Dillard
said. "We combined forces to bring the ecosystem’s clients more long-term, scalable and sustainable growth. We believe we’re stronger together especially after seeing so many small business owners of color struggle to survive through the Covid-19 pandemic.”
ElevateX aims to give clients more flexibility and capability on meeting deliverables for their projects. The expanded team of consultants "ensures the agency can be an essential one-stop-shop on just about any kind of endeavor," Dillard said, adding the collective can also "ensure any potential client can become or remain a vanguard in today's digital landscape."
“Each agency within the ecosystem contributes numerous in-demand services and skills to our collective," he said. "Our mission is to collectively leverage our combined skillsets to elevate game-changing brands, businesses and organizations for the post-pandemic digital economy and beyond.”
As the software development arm of ElevateX, Qme Spotlight creates custom environments for clients called community portals as a service (CPaaS). CPaaS software empowers its users to cultivate digital communities to include educational resources, job opportunities, business marketplaces and more in their online communities.
"Qme's innovative tech portfolio of CPaaS solutions enables communities to work through and solve significant challenges they face on a daily basis,” said Bentley Charlemagne, founder and CEO of Qme Spotlight. “Businesses, nonprofits, educational institutions, media publishers and even the farming industry can benefit from having their own proprietary community environment."
Eleviv Creative Agency serves as the branch of ElevateX that can "bring out the flare" on any type of writing or creative media for clients, according to Founder Vivian Elebiyo-Okojie.
“Content creation and creative design is an essential part of any business,” Elebiyo-Okojie said. “The new frontier in business is collaboration. With the merging of these companies, ElevateX is creating an ecosystem that allows all agencies involved to expand their reach while continuing to focus on their core competencies.”
Dillard said ElevateX is part of the natural progression for LunarX. Since its founding in 2019, the consultancy has served numerous clients, including government entities, universities and national nonprofits. He added that incorporating LunarX’s business model of holding equity in several of the clients it serves can benefit the companies comprising ElevateX.
“LunarX Agency retains equity in several companies and organizations to stay nimble while generating revenue in different sectors,” Dillard said. “I can’t wait to see the various kinds of partnerships and business models now that we can scale it with ElevateX.”
