Boston, MA, June 11, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Birnbach Communications, Inc., announced today that it is a silver sponsor of the New England Venture Network (NEVN), the largest network of young venture capital professionals on the East Coast.
Open to qualified members of the venture capital industry, NEVN serves as a community where young venture capital professionals can network and further their careers, both at offline events and online at www.venturenetwork.vc. The organization also helps promote and support sponsored local nonprofit organizations.
As part of its sponsorship, Birnbach Communications is assisting NEVN with a range of awareness programs, including media relations and social media.
Additionally, Birnbach Communications is launching a new package of services specifically designed for portfolio companies of NEVN's members. The Birnbach Impact Communications offerings include:
· Readiness Assessment: This component addresses not only the startup's messaging, positioning and PR content, but also evaluates its internal infrastructure, product maturity and other key variables to make sure the startup is ready for a PR program. The agency will make recommendations that include how to structure a program to gain maximum benefit.
· Product Launch: This offering, including a Launch Checklist, enables startups to get the public relations support when needed, without needing to make long-term commitments.
· Social Media Execution: This offering allows them to focus just on social media to reach customers and prospective customers.
· Content Development: This offering gives startups access to professional writers (since startups generally lack dedicated resources to capture and develop new ideas into blog articles, white papers, press releases, etc.). It also ensures key messages are incorporated into all content.
"Birnbach Communications understands the mindset and needs of the VC community in New England. We've been impressed with their track record working for some portfolio companies of NEVN's leadership team," said Rudina Seseri, co-chair of NEVN and a principal at Fairhaven Capital.
"NEVN's emphasis on the local business community is impressive, but we continue to admire its support of nonprofit initiatives as a way of giving something back to New England," said Norman Birnbach, President, Birnbach Communications. “And, our Birnbach Impact Communications offerings, based on our experience with early phase startups, is designed to efficiently and quickly professionalize their PR functions in a form that provides support as they need it."
During the past decade, the agency has substantial experience working with VC-backed and early stage companies, developing a specialty in data and storage, virtualization, videoconferencing and telecommunications, clean tech, security, sourcing, and financial regulatory and compliance issues.
