About Bonsai

Our Beliefs

Data needs a strategy to become an asset.

Data strategy gives companies a predictable way to improve marketing performance and marketplace standing.

Marketing needs data science to become intelligent.

The right guidance and proven methodologies allow for data capture, organization, modeling and activation.

Technology needs cultivation to be truly effective.

Tools are less effective without the guidance of a team who understands how to shape execution.

Our Values
