About Us

Agora marketing team profile

Hello, we are the Agora team, Liz and Jay. 

Nice to meet you! 

At the start of 2021, we decided to do what any sane person would do in a pandemic, start a business, obviously. Seeing entrepreneurs rising during COVID- 19 inspired us to take the plunge and do something to help. With a passion for people and business, we formed Agora, a home for small businesses with big dreams. Together, our goal is to work with the people at the heart of small businesses, offering marketing assistance, business advice and words of encouragement as we grow your small business or startup, and turn your dreams into reality. 

‘Agora’. Where in the world did we get that from? While looking for a word that represented the community we hope to build, we came across this and it just stuck. It is a Greek term which means, gathering place or assembly. The centre of athletic, artistic, business, spiritual and political life in the city. We want to be a central meeting place of sorts in our city. Somewhere minds meet, creativity flows and ideas grow into sustainable businesses for our clients.
