Keys to Our Business Success and Growth
Initially, Matt Visaggio, founder of Visaggio & Co., saw an opportunity to specialize in grant writing in Southwest Florida after being responsible for reviewing countless grant applications during his time with the Legislature. He liked reading how nonprofits focused on creating the best possible argument for funding for their particular organization. This work resonated with him because of the way that it was strategic. It offered the ability for sustainable community development through what is always needed: more money.
Matt found his niche in grant writing and development. During the last six months of 2014, Matt and his team wrote grant funding of well over $500,000 for the organizations Visaggio & Co. serves in Southwest Florida, but that doesn’t tell the whole story. Profit for Visaggio & Co. is measured in the impact we are able to generate. Working with other inspiring people, inspiring them, and being inspired by them is more important than profit. In a very real sense, inspiration is our profit, and cash profit is the result of our inspiration.
After four years operating as a part-time, home-based business, in April 2015, Visaggio Community Consulting has become Visaggio & Co. The name change represented a growth in business as the result of helping people and organizations become better.

Collaborative and Education-Based
We educate and empowers clients to achieve greater things in a collaborative and educational process. If we teach our clients to build and grow together with us in a way that they understand and appreciate, we believe that we will build a loyal and lifelong client base. The last thing that we want to do is serve a client that is not a good fit for our company. We avoid this by developing a marketing plan that appeals to the types of clients we want and limits our exposure to those we want to avoid. We can only do these things by remaining active and vigilant in our personal, spiritual, and professional development.
