Brewing Up Media Coverage for Funding Round
Ekos had a unique product—they created a one-stop-shop software for craft brewers to invoice, manage their inventory and help with accounting. They had just secured $8M in funding and needed a PR team to help them publicize the round.
PR worked closely with Ekos to create a narrative around why Ekos is the missing link for all craft makers, not just brewers, and why the investment furthers their value proposition. We developed a release with executive quotes and pitched the story under embargo a week ahead of the announcement date. The PR team followed the funding launch with a series of new hire announcements, thought leadership content and award wins.
PR secured coverage in leading tech publications, including TechCrunch, Axios, Fortune, Charlotte Business Journal and Wall Street Journal as well as the top industry pubs, including Wine Business, Brewbound, Brewer Magazine, and Craft Brewing Business. PR also secured a banner on NASDAQ’s building in Times Square, congratulating Ekos on their funding round.
