Treble, a PR agency that accelerates exits, today announced availability for venture-backed startups to join Cohort 3 of its VC Portfolio Funding Launch Accelerator Program.

The VC Portfolio Funding Launch Accelerator Program is available to seed-stage as well as Series A and Series B startups. The program is a PR ‘sprint’ focused on elevating global brand visibility of venture funding rounds. The funding news is a quantitative news hook for brands to tell the world about what makes them different in their respective markets, as well as to lay out the vision for each brand as it scales.

Venture capital firms with viable portfolio companies and startups interested in applying for Cohort 3 can apply here.

“Watching the success of our first two cohorts has been extremely rewarding,” said Ethan Parker, founder and CEO of Treble. “The program allows emerging entrepreneurs to establish competitive differentiation in their markets. The launches serve as a baseline for ongoing PR collaboration to elevate brand profiles globally.”

The five-week accelerator program arms startups with global brand visibility via targeted earned media coverage across the spectrum of financial, technology, vertical and regional publications. Treble delivers impactful media relations campaigns and strategic guidance that helps startups to achieve the following:

  • Increased investor awareness and inbound VC inquiries to invest in future rounds
  • Targeted earned media coverage that positively impacts the revenue and lead generation pipeline
  • Keen understanding of the current and fast-moving competitive environment to clearly differentiate companies and position them for market leadership
  • Accelerated path toward a successful exit via increased valuations and negotiating leverage due to the impact of earned media and global brand recognition

Treble has been a strategic partner to propel 17 startups to exit since 2014 resulting in hundreds of millions of dollars in shareholder exit valuations. Successful exits across the Treble client portfolio include TrendKite (acquired by Cision), Favor (acquired by HEB), StackEngine (acquired by Oracle), Boxer (acquired by VMware) and Joyride (acquired by Google).

Headquartered in Austin with a growing West Coast presence, Treble has partnered with venture capital firms across the United States, including the growing tech hubs in New York City, Atlanta, Chicago, Omaha, Phoenix, Houston, Kansas City, Boston, Madison, San Jose, San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, Seattle, Indianapolis, Cincinnati, Denver, Washington, D.C., and more.

Programs are crafted based on a scalable pricing model explicitly built to meet minimum marketing budget allocations while maximizing press coverage results. The result is to create successful funding launches that set companies on the fast track for ongoing growth in their respective markets.
