Today, I am pleased to announce a new program at Treble. We've had tremendous success with funding launches since the agency was founded in 2013, and we recognized there had to be a way to add immediate value and hit the ground running with both startups and venture capital firms. Our VC Portfolio Funding Launch Accelerator Program is designed from inception to do just that: a 5-week immersive program that maximizes press coverage for funding launches and positions the startup for success moving forward with its broader PR initiatives. Optimally, we can parlay that initial success into a longer-term partnership. I've included details from the press release announced today below, and I welcome the opportunity to collaborate.

Thank you for being a part of this journey. On behalf of the agency, we are excited about crushing this initiative and empowering startups around the globe.
