The Challenge
The etica group, inc. is a professional consulting firm that provides architectural, engineering, building envelope consulting and construction observation services. For more than 10 years, the firm based in Indianapolis has experienced tremendous success due its ability to deliver big results for its clients. To ensure that the etica group continued on an accelerated path of growth, leaders at the firm engaged the professionals at Bose Public Affairs Group (BPAG).

The Strategy
BPAG developed with the etica group a strategic plan to elevate its place in Indianapolis, throughout the state of Indiana and beyond. The plan focused on achieving the following:

  • Successful navigation of the cumbersome and lengthy process for obtaining the women-business owned (WBE) and Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) certifications
  • Effective evaluation of state and local projects to determine procurement activities that would lead to expansion
  • Dedicated community and charitable engagement in coordination with a business plan
  • Partnerships with key organizations, including the Indiana Construction Roundtable

The Impact
Thanks to BPAG’s guidance, the etica group attained greater visibility with an elevated profile, fortified its reputation as a reliable WBE and DBE partner. For two consecutive years, in 2015 and 2016, the Indianapolis Business Journal named the etica group one of the city’s fastest-growing companies in its annual Fast 25 list. A company achieving this designation must have had extreme revenue increases over a three-year period. The obtainment of the WBE and DBE certifications combined with a leadership position with the Indiana Construction Roundtable has helped open the etica group to new opportunities for growth and expansion.
