where uncommon collaborations
create competitive advantage



we are an on-demand, actively-managed expert collective

collective.iq is an ecosystem of hand-picked expert free-agents, whose talent is harnessed to help our clients solve for their toughest business and marketing challenges



// our story

We believe that in today’s fast changing, fragmenting, financially constrained business environment that collaboration is the new competitive advantage. It’s not just what you know that matters, rather, it’s your ability to access the knowledge you need when you need it. And collaboration needs to be built on a bedrock of trust.

Our tribe is made up of over 150 trusted independent freelance professionals, with whom we've had an average of five years in-the-trenches working experience. Our team includes brand strategists, cultural anthropologists, business analysts, writers, data scientists, creative directors, designers, marketing executives and more. In partnership with our clients, we help define the challenges they face and then we cast, curate and actively manage the right team of specialists to activate the optimal solution while ensuring the best cultural fit. In a nutshell, our stealth model offers clients flexible access to specialized expertise, full transparency, efficient workflow and excellent value for their scarce marketing dollars.
