A Commitment to Innovation

RDS is a mission driven strategic consulting firm fostering success at the intersection of innovation and government

Red Duke Strategies have been great advisors, mentors and friends to me over the past 4 years as I have been building out CareLinx's VA strategy. I don't say this lightly, you will be hard pressed to find advisors more trusted and connected throughout the VA, than Red Duke Strategies.
