At the age of 25, Steve Rosa founded (add)ventures to solve problems and make people happy. Launched in Boston in 1989, the company was established to fill a void in the advertising arena. After being on the client side of campaigns created by big-city advertising/PR agencies, Rosa found he was frustrated with cookie-cutter solutions, lackluster creative and poor client service. He knew he could do better.
With an initial investment of a $289 typewriter, Rosa launched (add)ventures on a foundation of boundless creativity, business savvy and a tireless work ethic.
(add)ventures has evolved into a multinational strategic and creative firm trusted by Fortune 500 companies and diverse smaller organizations with ambitions to lead their respective industries. We are headquartered in Providence, RI in a creative sanctuary that is stimulating, playful and (add)venturous.
