Solution Providers Guide: PR Firms

Solution Providers Guide: PR Firms

The VentureApp platform collects data from solution providers, experts and startups interacting on the network. We are presenting this data to help determine the top solution providers, as referred or used by startups on our private network. One of the biggest priorities for companies is marketing & communications so we will be digging into the various components of an integrated marketing, communications and advertising strategy, and the agencies and solution providers that can help along the way.

This week we are digging into the top PR firms based in Boston. Firms vary in size, budget, and industry expertise, and some firms handle more than PR, including digital, social or content marketing. Ultimately this list is representative of the data we see on our platform – the firms getting mentioned, used and referred by our startups, in alphabetical order. It’s important to realize that agency experiences can vary based on the business of the client and the relationship with the firm. We want to help startups on our platform, giving them a head-start by sieving through the many firm/agency options and connecting them to the right fit for their business.

As our network grows, we will be adding to this list both in Boston and in other geographies – we encourage your input and recommendations so we can treat this as a living & breathing document and resource. If you have experiences with any of these firms – positive or negative – that you’d like to share, we welcome that input as well. Companies to add? Let us know.
