What's In a Name?

We wanted a powerful name that conveyed our roots as well as the solutions we offer to businesses around the country. While 38.2527° N 85.7585° W is our home base our reach stretches from coast to coast.

When developing our brand, we dug deep into who we are. We found that most businesses are not completely lost at sea, but most need a calculated approach to bring them back on course. Like a ship with an instrument panel (the old days of navigating by the stars/sun/moon is over) we have GPS. Yet, you still need a well-trained captain and crew who know how to work the system/gages to read the output.

Eighty5°West Business Advisory is your dedicated partner helping you stay the course.
