Treble Completes Successful Inaugural Year of VC Portfolio Funding Launch Accelerator Program, Announces 2020 Availability

December 3, 2019

AUSTIN, Texas & SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 3, 2019--

Treble, an agency operating at the speed of business to meet the PR needs of technology startups and venture capital firms, today announced availability in 2020 for venture-backed startups to capitalize on the benefits of its recently launched VC Portfolio Funding Launch Accelerator Program.

Treble has been a strategic partner to propel 15 startups to exit since 2014. 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 ).

The 5-week accelerator program arms startups with brand visibility post-completion of signing funding term sheets, maximizing press coverage to garner both top-of-funnel interest and spark recognition among prospective future investors. Treble collaborates across the spectrum of venture-backed companies from seed-stage funding to pre-IPO enterprises to deliver impactful media relations and strategic guidance.

Headquartered in Austin, Treble has partnered with venture capital firms across the United States actively investing in startup markets including New York City, Atlanta, Chicago, Omaha, Houston, Kansas City, Boston, Madison, San Jose, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Indianapolis, Cincinnati, Denver, Washington D.C. and more.

How Treble Seeds the Market for Startups to Exit

The VC Portfolio Funding Launch Accelerator Program matches companies into seed, Series A and Series B through pre-IPO funding program PR sprints that commence ahead of Form D filings and public knowledge of the funding round to maximize media coverage. Programs are crafted based on a scalable pricing model built specifically to meet minimum marketing budget allocations while maximizing press coverage results. The end result is to create successful funding launches that set up companies on a fast-track for ongoing growth in their respective markets. The funding news is a quantitative news hook for the startup to tell the bigger picture vision around what makes it unique for its customers and strategic partners.

“2019 was a tremendous success for startups that participated in our accelerator,” said Ethan Parker, Founder and CEO of Treble. “From TechCrunch to BusinessInsider to Forbes, we locked in media coverage that accelerated the growth path and highlighted the value proposition of these companies to a very large and highly targeted audience. Heading into 2020, Treble is ready and excited to partner with companies that understand and appreciate the value of earned media as part of a broader strategic marketing program.”

Treble Funding Accelerator Startup Testimonials

“The Treble VC Portfolio Accelerator Funding Program was highly successful for Homeward,” said Tim Heyl, Founder and CEO of Homeward. “Ethan and his team worked diligently with us to craft the right message and had the unique connections to get our news in the hands of the right media outlets.”

“When we raised our last fundraising round, we reviewed multiple firms and ultimately decided to go with Treble,” said Paul Battista, Co-Founder and CEO of Polarity. “We were very happy with the decision. They ramped up fast and secured the coverage we were looking for. They are a great partner and extension of my team, and we will continue to work with them in the future.”
