AUSTIN, Texas & SAN FRANCISCO—August 18, 2021—Treble, a startup PR agency that accelerates exits, today announced it has been named to the PRNEWS 2022 awards list of The Agency Elite Top 100. The list highlights the nation’s most innovative and strategic public relations firms of the year.

PR agencies of all sizes were judged based on their services, products, employee initiatives and activities, and core agency offerings. Firms that stood out with the most innovative work were included on the final list.

“Being recognized on the national level is a testament to our team and our consistent track record of delivering a return on investment for our clients,” said Ethan Parker, founder, and CEO of Treble. “The fun part is that I feel like we are just getting started as the agency scales beyond our roots in Austin and establishes a strong presence in emerging global technology hubs. Our value proposition of accelerating exits is clearly resonating with venture capital firms and venture-backed startups.”

Over the past year, Treble launched Portfolio, an exclusive membership program that maximizes funding launches for startups across venture capital funds to generate PR portfolio alpha. The agency also introduced Elevate, a 10-week PR program for venture-backed startups, and created Cohort 3 of the VC Portfolio Funding Launch Accelerator Program.

“Flexibility and evolution are two words that immediately come to mind when I think about the agencies on this year’s list,” says Erika Bradbury, Editorial Director, PRNEWS. “The firms this year stood out for their work on the most important issues of today, including DEI initiatives, social impact causes, and COVID-19 relief work, as well as their understanding of the importance of being nimble in an always-on media world.”

Treble has been a strategic partner agency 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). Founder Ethan Parker is a regular contributor to Forbes.com.

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