Did You Know We Have Our PhD In STEM?

You could say we have an honorary degree. We are experts at building STEM thought leadership for the brands we represent and we have an A+ report card to prove it. Check out the reasons why Cone Communications is a leader in STEM marketing and communications:

  • Cone has a strong reputation as an agency-of-record for many business and nonprofit leaders in STEM and education – Bayer’s Making Science Make Sense program, FIRST Robotics, LEGO Education and Lemelson-MIT. Our proven commitment to working with purpose-driven brands makes us an ideal partner for organizations committed to advancing  STEM education.
  • We have our pulse on conferences and thought leadership opportunities to ensure our clients’ voices and initiatives are heard amongst their peers. We’ve helped our clients gain recognition from influencers and community leaders – from media to public officials, and even the White House.
  • We tell stories that break through — whether it’s helping a reporter spotlight a child’s invention to combat global warming, to penning thought leadership pieces on best practices for preparing students for college and the ever-growing STEM workforce. We also develop compelling content to inspire teachers to embrace STEM in and outside of the classroom.

If you have a passion for STEM, we’d love to hear from you and talk more about how Cone could partner with you to amplify your efforts. Contact us today.
