About Virgil, LLC
Let us light the way.
Publius Vergilius Maro, or Virgil as we know him today, was ancient Rome’s chronicler of empire and power. His tales of Rome and its first emperor, Caeser Augustus, are emblematic of our understanding of power - its value, its responsibilities, how it develops, and how it operates. Virgil advisors similarly understand the weight and opportunity of power and can help you wield it to your best advantage.
Virgil was also Dante’s guide through the realms of the afterlife in The Divine Comedy. He helped Dante evade the pitfalls of the circles of hell - representing improper governance and abuse of social, political, and economic power - and rise to the ideal of a properly governed state.
Now Virgil is your guide, steering you away from the perils of poor corporate governance and operations and chronicling your accomplishments as you successfully engage your values to build a profitable business that fully aligns with your mission and values.
