About

Our Mission

Digital innovation produces an ever changing, unpredictable, and challenging environment that will make or break many B2B companies. To be successful today, mid-market B2B companies must transform archaic business practices and business models and fundamentally rethink how they interact with customers.

Paradigm exists to guide medium-sized and mid-market B2B companies through today’s complex and digitally-disrupted commerce landscape. B2B companies need differentiated customer experiences, but often struggle to create them. Paradigm offers high-quality but affordable advice that’s well-informed and immediately actionable.
