London-based B2B tech PR agency for challenger brands, CommsCo, is launching an Accelerator division to support some of the UK’s hottest university spinouts. The purpose of this division is to showcase innovations from UK universities in the field of technology.
The agency is a preferred choice of many university hubs for its flexibility and scaling proposition to support seed funded ventures. The team provides tech startups with a full service marketing and PR function which enables them to establish their brand relatively quickly in an affordable way.
Max Sich, co-founder and CEO of Aegiq, commented: “We started working with CommsCo soon after we established the company. We operate in a challenging sector where both technology (quantum tech) and the company are not commonly known. The team at CommsCo is very agile and took the bulk of heavy lifting on themselves to drive PR opportunities but also to support all events and press releases. In fact, the very first press release we did together straight away put Aegiq on the map in the quantum tech sector. To summarise, we are very satisfied with the results so far.”
Leah Jones, Deputy Managing Director at CommsCo, added: “From quantum to blockchain, the CommsCo team is passionate about elevating the profiles of tech startups – especially those that have spun out of UK universities. Some of the biggest UK tech companies started as a university spinout, and needed PR expertise to grow their awareness with investors, talent and potential customers.”
Founded in 2013 by Ilona Hitel, CommsCo specialises in delivering rapid profile PR and social media campaigns to support challenger technology brands. It drives lead generation for innovative B2B technology startups and scaleups.
The agency adopts an agile approach to PR to support companies in challenging their larger industry competitors, and offers a comprehensive service delivery including email, traditional and digital content, social media, PR & AR, and events.
