About Us

Based in Boulder, Colorado, Walden Hyde has spent a decade building Constructive Brands for the next level of growth—whether it’s launching, attracting mainstream audiences, or being acquired. In the process, we have sacrificed revenue and risked type-casting ourselves. But as a result, our work is what the world needs more of.

Guided by a strong reason for being, Constructive Brands advance profitability without screwing over future generations. They shift culture, build up employees, and future-proof resources. We make sure they are wildly successful.
