Today, both established companies and startups are growing in new ways, seeking funding over the internet, from angel investors, institutional co-investors, friends and associates. Companies are communicating with their key constituents differently, too — bypassing traditional press for the more immediate impact of social media.
As a pioneer in creating crowdfunding marketplaces, the Grow VC Group is uniquely positioned to understand the implications of growing a business in the internet age and by partnering with Hatch PR through this equity share, the group can bring an end-to-end business growth plan to rising stars.
Founded in 2008 and quickly gaining a client base that included mobile phone giant Nokia, Hatch PR provides a flexible solution to companies that require cost-effective communication. Hatch PR delivers social media strategies, creative high-impact press campaigns and basic communication packages with a level of agility unknown to traditional PR agencies, via a network of talented contractors.
“Grow VC is the ideal partner for us — nimble, smart, fast-moving, and at the cusp of how the internet is reshaping our world,” said Hatch PR founder Emily McDaid. “I believe that finance is the next industry to fall to the internet and I want my business to be prepared. Hatch PR and Grow VC are advising today’s businesses in high-growth industries how they can prepare, too.”
“As a maverick in global securities crowdfunding, Grow VC boasts members from all layers of business,” said Grow VC chairman and founder Jouko Ahvenainen. “Hatch PR will offer our affiliated companies with a unique communications solution, flexible and impactful for today’s modern era of communications. Totally new communications and other business services are needed in this new area, to properly manage investor relations and communicate with internet investors.”
