PR for Founders

As the driver of a startup or small business, showcasing industry expertise is essential for building trust with potential clients and partners.

A founder’s visibility is often the way potential leads discover your business, so getting your views on topical industry issues seen in business publications, podcasts or on social profiles is very powerful.

Many of our founder clients seek PR because they want to build a profile outside of their business to pave the way for consultancy or advisory work for when they exit their business or because they intend to seek investment.
