Trustmode Marketing helps companies gain confidence and focus through customized solutions that maximize returns and drive business decisions.
Founded when Andréa Coutu, MBA, was in undergrad, Trustmode grew beyond humble freelancing. Trustmode created tech and entrepreneurship practices to build BC’s innovation, exports, and human resources, attracting startups and the Fortune 500.
In 2006, Trustmode launched ConsultantJournal.com to help consultants grow businesses. Reaching 4.5 million visitors, it democratized consulting, sharing once-taboo subjects and publishing Consulting Fees.
When life crises unfolded, Trustmode leaned into lived experience, building capacity in trauma-informed practice, collaborative problem solving and Indigenous cultural safety. The firm donates services, helped develop inclusive language and advocacy courses, and lectures at universities. Trustmode also sponsors microloans and offers subsidized coaching to entrepreneurs facing social inclusion barriers.
