Publicize PR launches news letter to connect startups to potential investors

By Oliver Griffin August 29, 2016

Publicize PR, the startup public relations business, has launched a news letter to connect its startup clients to potential investors, helping them raise funding.

Publicize CEO and founder Conrad Egusa said, “The inspiration for the Investor Newsletter came from what we’ve seen in Silicon Valley. A lot of law firms and other service providers there make introductions for startups to investors, and serve as part of the ecosystem.

“Our aim with the newsletter is to provide more value to startups looking for funding. We were really happy to see investors asking for introductions from the first email we’d sent out.”

Publicize sent its first investor news letter on Thursday August 25, featuring 10 of its clients in an email to more than 200 investors. Publicize plans to increase this number to more than 300 investors in the coming weeks.

Publicize reports that the first investors expressed interest in startup clients in less than 30 minutes.

The company was founded by Egusa – a former VentureBeat writer – in July 2014, with the aim of providing a risk-free approach to PR for startups and small businesses.

Publicize provides a month-to-month PR subscription service with no costly retainer, with prices that start at just $320 per month. Publicize also offers up to a 100 percent money back guarantee as part of its aim to make PR accessible to all entrepreneurs, regardless of what budget they have.

Recently Egusa, who is also a co-founder of Medellin based incubator Espacio, acquired this very Publication, along with partner and Chief Operations Operator Edinson Arrieta.

“We have always been really impressed with Startup Beat,” Arrieta said. “We’re looking forward to investing resources to grow this team and publication.”
