Our Story

The Story of Kurogo

From a university bedroom in Birmingham, to a leading personal branding agency - it’s been quite the journey. We wouldn’t be where we are today without the team we’ve built.

We’re looking for the next Stagehands to join Kurogo. That could be you.

2020

Our founder, Sam, graduated from university straight into a global pandemic. Having consulted a few founders on how to build their personal brands whilst at university, he had the dream of building an agency to help them.

February, 2021

With a small client list and a load of ambition, Sam launched ‘Brandly’, as it was known then, in early 2021.

September, 2021

Brandly was rebranded to Kurogo, to reflect our ambition to be the supporting team behind the world’s best founders, CEOs and entrepreneurs.

2022

Kurogo grew from a small team of 3 to a power team of 15 people across the world. We also won clients as far as the US, UAE and even New Zealand.

2023

We’ve now helped over 100 entrepreneurs build personal brands, generated 100’s of millions of views and are widely regarded as leaders in the field. But we’re not planning on slowing down.

(Oh, and we also launched the world’s first dedicated personal brand content studio in central London)

Our Values

The Kurogo Values

Values are our guiding principles and beliefs - they help us, as a team, work together, deliver results for our clients and partners, drive company growth and make a positive difference in the world.

We do everything with integrity and we keep our promises

Trust is invaluable. Trust is at the core of Kurogo’s culture. Trust is a pivotal part of a powerful personal brand.

We are brilliant at the basics and we champion creativity

Our standards are high at all times. The little things matter to us. But, we also champion creativity and are open to new ideas and perspectives.

We seize every opportunity to do the right thing

We’re a small team with a big heart. We do this through our charity work, our commitment to young entrepreneurs and start-up founders, our togetherness as a team, and the opportunities we provide to students.

We are always inclusive and never divisive

Everyone has a voice. Everyone has a story to tell. That’s why we listen to every voice around the table.
