Business Wire today announced it has entered into an exclusive agreement with VentureBeat — the web’s leading news service focusing on the intersection of technology, people and money — to provide innovative companies worldwide with direct access to the digital decision-makers, tech industry influencers and venture capital/private equity investors who collectively are transforming the global economy.
Business Wire members seeking high-profile visibility for their new product or service, or to generate possible investment interest, will have a unique opportunity to reach these key audiences via Business Wire’s exclusive collaboration with VentureBeat. Business Wire releases will be promoted to VentureBeat’s millions of readers, featured on its main editorial presentation channel, and archived permanently on the VentureBeat site for future reference.
Since 2006, VentureBeat has emerged as the go-to resource in the VC and tech communities for its enterprising coverage of the dynamic people and disruptive technologies that are radically reshaping our lives. Its aggressive, well-reported coverage of technology startups has earned VentureBeat a reputation of editorial excellence among its large and dedicated following of 5.5 million unique monthly users, along with nearly a half-million friends and followers via Facebook and Twitter. More important than sheer numbers, however, is its desirable demographic audience, consisting of senior-level business executives, technology strategists, venture capitalists, investors, and consumer enthusiasts who turn to VentureBeat as their daily, first-read for technology news and analysis.
“In many ways, this relationship returns Business Wire to its roots,” noted Cathy Baron Tamraz, Business Wire’s chief executive officer. “As an aggressive San Francisco start-up itself in 1961, Business Wire has historically enjoyed a special relationship with technology start-ups and entrepreneurs. We worked closely with many of Silicon Valley’s pioneering start-ups; our growth mirrored theirs as we evolved into global enterprises.
“Through its agreement with VentureBeat, Business Wire looks forward to linking the imaginative ideas of today’s generation of innovators to the key audiences they are hoping to reach — just as it has done for thousands of companies trying to get noticed by industry influencers and investors since 1961,” Tamraz added.
“Business Wire is an excellent platform for us,” said Matt Marshall, Founder and Editor-in-Chief, VentureBeat. “As a trusted news distributor, Business Wire gives us access to a robust new audience who will be informed and inspired by our content.”
