Volvox is a band of experienced high tech marketing, engineering, strategy, and management professionals. We bring best of breed expertise to bear on every engagement by pulling in our friends and colleagues who are the best at what our clients need—just about every engagement has a different team: if you have a nail, we bring a hammer. But unlike many consultants, we don’t only have a hammer, so every problem isn’t a nail, and every nail isn’t a tenpenny.
