Hey, I'm Anna

I'm the founder of FMC (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 startups build powerful brands, superfan customers, and compounding growth.

I don't play by the book

Guess what? There is no book when it comes to marketing. There are fundamental marketing principles and the rest is experimentation. I’ve been in the trenches at both big name brands (Accenture, Groupon, Blistex) and venture-backed startups. I headed up marketing at two VC-backed startups (Fooda and Elevate K-12). I’ve seen a lot of waste and I’ve also seen the power of being small and nimble. I developed the MaaS (Marketing-as-a-System) Method and have used this systematic approach to marketing and growth with dozens of startup clients.

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

After 12+ years working in corporate and heading up marketing at two venture-backed startups, I decided to build my company. As a Fractional Head of Marketing for early stage B2B startups, I help them build a solid marketing foundation (targeting, positioning, website, GTM strategy) and execute on that strategy. I have a very small and nimble team to help execute. I’m also an advisor for SignalFire and Forum Ventures portfolio of companies and limited partner at MKT1 Capital.
