INSPIRATION
about_longbow1

The English longbow was a powerful tool of wartime strategy. It was equally useful at long or short range. The longbow’s introduction in the Middle Ages was a technological innovation that changed warfare for centuries. It could be fired faster, had longer range and with devastating accuracy far in excess of any other weapon available in its day. The longbow was one of the primary reasons that England was able to establish itself as a world power early in the last millennium.

A classic example of the strength, power and effectiveness of the longbow was the historic Battle of Agincourt in 1415. There, a vastly superior French army was defeated by King Henry V’s outnumbered English force because of the effectiveness of its archers with their longbows. This battle was made famous by William Shakespeare’s play Henry V.

We started Longbow Partners, to bring these qualities of innovation, speed, and accuracy to bear for our clients.

Longbow Partners provides exceptional strategic and management consulting. Our consultants come from government, medical research, law, technology development, and higher education.
