Hey, I'm Anna

I'm the founder of Furmanov Marketing Consulting. Ever since I was a child, I’ve been a creator. I love to paint, build, design, and communicate. I also enjoy understanding people and what makes them tick. So naturally, I'm passionate about helping others build powerful brands and businesses.

I don't always play by the book

I do what works. I’ve been in the trenches at both big name brands (Accenture, Groupon, Blistex) and venture-backed startups. I headed up marketing at two Series A startups (Fooda and Elevate K-12). I’ve seen a lot of waste and I’ve also seen the power of being small, nimble and powerful. I also have a couple of kiddos and I don’t have time to waste on the stuff that’s not working. Marketing is ongoing and iterative, so I spend my days prioritizing, executing, learning, and re-prioritizing. I take the same approach with my startup clients.

Just like you, I always had the itch to build something

Maybe that's why I love startups so much. After 12+ years working in corporate and heading up marketing at two venture-backed startups, I decided to build this company. As a fractional Head of Marketing, I help early stage startups build the right marketing foundation, simplify their marketing strategy, and execute with laser focus. I bring the strategy, content and demand gen expertise. My team includes experts in design, web, SEO and social. I’m also an advisor for SignalFire and Forum Ventures portfolio of companies (early stage VC firms).
