If I hire you to be my Fractional Chief Marketing Officer, how is this different than hiring a marketing agency?
N8 Ventures does not provide marketing agency services. We will not directly execute the tactics you would find offered by a marketing agency. We do provide high-level direction for your company's marketing department. As a fractional CMO, we help client's build their marketing team. This can include developing a gameplan to hire top talent internally, as well as forging strong relationships with external contractors and agencies. The goal is to align company mission and financial objectives with a custom marketing approach full of relevant and effective strategies.
Do you provide fractional CFO, COO or CRO services?
Internally, N8 Ventures offers three specific fractional executive leadership roles:
Chief Culture Officer
Chief Innovation Officer
Chief Marketing Officer
Partners currently offer the following roles:

What is prosperity planning and how does it differ from financial planning?
Traditionally, financial planning involves a registered investment advisor providing financial advice for a fee, a percentage of assets under custody, commissions, or a mix of these. N8 Ventures does not provide financial advice, recommend or solicit purchase of any securities, sell any financial instrument/insurance products, or take custody of client assets. Prosperity planning is an education and accountability system custom tailored for entrepreneurs and passionate professionals seeking something different. We co-create process and accountability around work-life integration, time management, finances, and technology. The goal of Prosperity Planning is to transcend the "What" of your financial plan and focus on the "Why" that drives your personal life mission. Our collaboration will provide the basis for creating a unique "How" for living your dream without the bias or limitation of any one service provider. We embrace diversity beyond your retirement portfolio!
What have you accomplished to provide real value to other business owners?
No. There are elements of consulting that resemble coaching: accountability check-ins, goal-setting, ongoing education. However, each service offering is uniquely designed to provide concrete, actionable feedback with a process to make it happen. Getting into action with clients, creating tangible work products, and providing direct support with team members are cornerstones of the various offerings. The process can involve talent sourcing and development for clients, as well as providing strategic introductions within our network.
Who is on the N8 Ventures team? Do you have employees?
Currently, N8 Ventures employs one person, Nate Ruben. However, Nate maintains a network of contractors and specialized service providers to offer greater levels of impact for our clients. N8 Ventures focuses on creating a lasting infrastructure for clients, building teams internally and externally.
Are you a venture capital funding business?
No. N8 Ventures is a vehicle for Nate Ruben to fulfill his creative passions and desire to share his talents with others. The Venture refers to the several business ventures doing business under the LLC.
Do you help business owners secure funding?
Yes. There are many types of funding opportunities clients look for:
