Who we are.

Our Story

There are moments in life that present an opportunity to take a risk, gain ground, and stride for a win.

This requires agility, speed and experience, but it all begins with an idea that inspires unanticipated outcomes.

DarkHorse is an Idea Realization company.

We see the extraordinary in your idea, and we make it real, tangible, visceral.

We uncover the untamed, scary, scalable ideas that could change everything.  

We harness them and bring them home.

DarkHorse is a new breed of business.

We ask,

What will you allow to surface?

How far do you want to go?

How fast do you need to get there?

How thunderous is the clap of your imagination?

The company is DarkHorse, and we are that energy.
