Karbo Communications Launches PowerStart PR Launch Program For Early-Stage Technology Startups

Designed to Help Seed-Funded Companies Break Through the Market Noise

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – October 8, 2015 – Karbo Communications, Inc.,a top-ranked tech public relations (PR) and digital agency, today announced the PowerStart PR Launch Program created for pre-Series A technology companies. The program is offered via a tiered pricing structure and allows startups to work with a highly successful PR team to enter a market with impact and increase visibility.

Each offering features the high-quality elements needed for a successful launch, including the Karbo Communications’ Essential Differentiation and Messaging (EDM) process, spokesperson coaching, story pitching to top-tier press, media kit/press material development, interview management, social media content and follow up. Additionally, companies have the option to purchase à la carte items such as video creation, contributed article placements, customer case studies, speaking opportunities, award submissions, promotions, advertising and review programs.

PowerStart gives startups that lack the financial resources for extensive and ongoing PR programs the opportunity to break through the increasingly crowded tech market ecosystem. There are more than 20,000 startups in the Silicon Valley alone. According to CB Insights via Fortune, startup funding for the U.S. is projected to reach a groundbreaking $70 billion by the end of 2015. Many of these startups cannot afford the resources of top-flight PR agencies and are left to execute their marketing and PR programs alone. The Karbo Communications PowerStart launch program will be customized to get the attention of the stakeholders that a company needs to reach—press, analysts, influencers, potential customers, employees and investors. These companies will work closely with Karbo Communications teams, comprising communications’ veterans and rising stars that craft and execute tailored programs, earning proven results for B2B and B2C tech companies.

“The reality is that a lot of startups have phenomenal products, but they lack the financial resources to execute top-flight launches,” said Julie Karbo, founder and CEO of Karbo Communications. “At Karbo Com, our philosophy is that you only have one chance to launch your company, and it should be with your strongest foot forward. If a startup waits until acquiring a Series A round to make an impact, they risk the market simply passing them by. We’ve developed PowerStart because we don’t want the inability to fund extensive PR efforts to keep great technology and products from reaching the market. We’ve worked with hundreds of startups, so we’re keenly aware of what it takes to succeed. Karbo Com will align highly experienced, aggressive and creative PR professionals with companies that only have a launch standing between them and success.”
