PR + Comms
for High-Growth Companies

Your story is unique. Different.Or at least, it should be. We leverage our storytelling power to bring your company's "why" to life.

HOW WE'RE DIFFERENT

THE ANTI-AGENCY

We’ve worked here, there, and everywhere. While cutting our teeth in the PR world, we came across one common truth.No one really likes working with (or for) traditional agencies.The junior-led team structure, the bait-and-switch sales methods, the long contracts, the revolving door of account support. It’s a real pain.So, we’re doing things a bit differently.At The Colab there are no benchwarmers. No JV squad. Just top-tier, high-talent team members with 10 or more years of experience, ready to hop in and make moves.The team you start with is the team you’ll have forever (did we mention our team has 0% churn?).
No long contracts here - many of our clients have been with us for years, so we’ve simply never needed to lock anyone in.

Our Ethos

Future-Focused

The thing that keeps us up at night?Figuring out what’s coming next.Media is ever-evolving, and we’re obsessed with keeping our eye on the horizon. We pride ourselves on integrating all types of media into our strategy, from the top-tier big names to the rising Substack stars.


Content Mastery

Good writing matters

We only work with exceptional writers.Period.Great writers can tell your company story without overused buzzwords or corporate clichés. A well-written pitch could be the difference between an interview secured or an immediate click to the recycle bin.

Difference maker

Scalable Storytelling

The way you craft a story is just as important as the story itself. That’s why you need a strategic team with the ability to develop key messages in a way that will resonate with your many different audiences.We call this scalable storytelling and it's one of the foundational elements of our outbound press strategy.


Making News

PRoactive by Nature

We understand that few businesses have big news on an ongoing basis. We also know that the real brand-building happens in between major events.Being proactive is a major part of how we keep our companies top-of-mind with the press. We leverage major trends, news events and thought leadership opportunities to maintain a solid cadence of coverage.
