A Goat in Motion

Remote Goat

As an entity we are contributing a lot to the world of start-ups and entrepreneurs. We attend networking events; coffee meets and even meets with budding entrepreneurs looking for the right path among the many in front of them.
Trying to give back to communities is a priority and on the topic of good business karma, this is all achieved and continues to be achieved by actionable insights, blood, sweat, tears, and guts.

As the phone rings more and more we never know who is going to be at the other end of the call. A couple of months ago we discovered that TwentySomthingLondon were attending an event and inviting The Herder herself to one of the more prestigious buildings in London, nay, the country.
The invitation was nothing short of being involved in an inspired conversation regarding the start-up community and how environmental, political and social factors affect them at No. 10 Downing Street. Mind. Blown.

Off she went. Emeline joined a handful of inspirational characters; business owners and entrepreneurs. All were involved in a round-table-like conversation surrounding the ever-growing topic of how to help young companies such as the ones there, at that moment in time.
The pride and the privilege to be part of such an event has still not quite sunk in but to be part of it nonetheless was described as incredible and inspirational.

That’s just one of many opportunities we have been part of recently and it only just starts to show the basis of the giant iceberg that is being created.

Shortly after Downing Street, the phone rings again and after countless conversations and cups of coffee, Emeline has once again been invited to contribute to an audience evolving in to the big bad world. This time it happens to be across waters and into the fashion capital of the world, Paris.
The invitation is for Emeline to guest lecture at the ESCP European Business School in October of this year, which is only round the corner!
The ESCP was the world’s first business school founded in 1819 and now has campuses across Europe in 5 cities. The educational body offers a range of business degrees and courses making it the best institute of its kind.

Keep your eyes peeled for the ESCP ‘behind the scenes’. There will be all sorts of content to come from it!

One organisation that commits its time to exceptional, entrepreneurial women is the Astia community. The close relationship that has formed with this wonderful organisation has proven to be invaluable.
Bringing together bright minds to share powerful insights is the foundation of the company that provides a key insight in to the work that they carry out. It is truly remarkable and we are proud to be part of that.

If there was any particular company to talk about it would definitely be worth mentioning the New Entrepreneurs Foundation, more commonly known as the NEF, for you abbreviation geeks. If you have done your homework you would have realised that our seed-brand winners are also involved with the NEF so plenty of good things have come out of our relationship with them. Not too long ago actually, Emeline was asked to part of their Fireside talks. The event was intimate and full of industry enthusiasts along with the NEF cohort, drinks were had, discussions were informal and relationships were founded. Events such as the NEF seminars and talks can be invaluable to your business and we would definitely encourage you to go to as many as you can.

So, as you can see we have been pretty busy. What with all our own work we find ourselves scheduling time in our calendar just to breathe! But, what would a start-up be without that, right?



An Introduction…

Remote Goat

We are Remote Goat and welcome to our brand new, bleat-filled blog! We know you want to know more about us, you can’t kid yourself any longer. You need to know about us. NO! You WANT to know about us – where we’ve been, how we got there and why we ended up where we are today. It’s a gripping, heart-warming story so get a cuppa and join in.

Ever since the inception of Remote Goat we have stayed tapped into the entrepreneurial and start-up communities. To be honest with you, that’s how we came to be who we are. Remote Goat started out with an in-house entrepreneur competition at Lebara, where Emeline was a senior designer. Her expertise stemmed from retail communication and customer journeys so it makes sense that she can steer a start-up company in the right direction with its target audience in mind. After winning the funding rounds at Lebara, Float Your Goat was born and subsequently, Remote Goat was too a little further down the line.

The original stance of the company was to champion bringing company and designer together through an online, creative recruitment process. The idea, as you may know already, came from a sudden brain-wave sparked by a lonesome goat strolling past a Hertfordshire countryside window. Of course this is where the name Remote Goat comes from. Emeline just so happened to be thinking of a revolutionary way to better the relationship for designers to work remotely, literally wherever they are in the world when a goat walked by. That’s as  good a sign as any!

From there the company’s incremental growth plainly on word of mouth attracting the decision makers and seniority within companies. In the process of working with the digital designers in and around London, we spent a huge amount of time observing the start-up world emerge and evolve as it continues to do today.

This is the reason why we know what we know. We work in the start-up and entrepreneurial communities because we have lived and breathed the whole experience. Hence why we are experts. We are the goat-to agency for budding entrepreneurs and start-ups who are looking for that ever important, precise branding expertise. We are right here, come on in!

To this day Remote Goats experience and knowledge is growing as the days tick by. After being it, working it and being a part of it we can safely say that we know more about the whole start-up and entrepreneurial sector than ever before. Our deep-seated knowledge and skills are always reaching new depths as our client base grows, the more our assurance is firmly backed by our portfolio.

We are here to be a brand acceleration agency and what we do is mould the future generation of evolutionary brands.

Not too long ago we decided to put our money where our mouth is and run a seed-branding programme. Three companies, 12 months, and a tonne of good business karma, this is by far the best way to demonstrate we know what we are talking about to prove that point.
