As a result of the digitalization of society and the convergence of uses, tools and media, the advertising market is entering a new era. All media are becoming programmatic!

Our model

To drive, accelerate, invest and innovate through the strength of the collective. For our clients, and all those who have ideas that carry us forward.

Build & Drive A‑teams

Yet another platform for freelancers? No way. There are many of them and they are precious and we love them, but that is no longer enough. We build collective interactions that produce value through a detailed understanding of needs. We choose and manage the most relevant resources and meaningful projects, and are guarantors of the result. The 7th House does not impose one model on another but follows the outlines of customer organizations and cultures, adapts resources in real time to deliver the expected value, and instills ambition and desire at each stage of the process. If we are by your side, it is because we think that we can go further together and that the collective that we have brought together wants to be proud of what it does with you.

Propel & Foster Entrepreneurship

Have you noticed ? We've been through a little disruptive period for 2 years, haven't we? For some people, it is scary and makes them want to curl up and pray. For others, it opens doors and desires. But sometimes we get a little apprehensive. What if I got on my own? And what if I leave the mega corporation that puts me in a small box and suffocates me, in order to be reborn and find the passion that animates me since the beginning? At The Seventh House, we catalyze, we ignite, we reassure, we frame and we free those who are full of talent but who dread the unknown. Join the tribe friends. You think you are the best? You want to undertake but not alone? You want to join a collective that shares the same values and the same passion while allowing you to remain free? It's over there.

Own & Advice

Did it ever surprise you? Consulting experts advise. But most of the time without having founded a business themselves. Certainly, the experience accumulated in the analysis of different fields has an undeniable value, but we believe that it is no longer good enough. To truly understand the challenges of our clients, provide relevant advice, guide strategic choices, you have to be a full-fledged entrepreneur. This is why, associated with the advice of various investment funds, The 7th House enters the capital of young companies, participates in boards of directors, and brings its consulting power and know-how to these young shoots. In turn, these entrepreneurs become part of The 7th House community and bring their experiences to the various missions we carry out.

Make & Deploy

That too, we want it: to make stuff with our own hands; to make products, services, ideas that we imagine, finance, develop, deploy from A to Z. Because they make sense and we believe in them. Part of The 7th House's time and profits are dedicated to this. Because our collective is teeming with brilliant ideas. Because being as close as possible to our customers' business creates development opportunities. Because the diversity of our network allows us to make the best choices to grow our projects. Because doing things is the best learning method. In short, there are plenty of "because" then we decided to make it a development axis in its own right.
