Woodwing Ventures usually invests in early stage companies. “Literally any company needing to market itself, can use pr.co to finely tune their message to the correct audience, automate workflows and improve overall communication efficiency”, said Brian Reaves, lead angel investor – who is also in the supervisory board of the startup. The VC based in Zaandam previously invested in well-known startups like Tiqets , Revue , Sowiso and in a web/mobile batch from Rockstart. Press and PR startups Pr.co is well-known in the Dutch startup scene, mostly because several accelerators offer their services to their startups. “With the investment, pr.co is also able to offer more services to big companies and multinationals”, CEO Stefan Fountain said in the press release .

History Pr.co was founded in 2009 as Pressdoc and as a subsidiary from The Next Web. In 2013 the startup was rebranded as ‘pr.co’ and in 2014 a new management structure was added. Now it has cut its ties with The Next Web (but still in the same office – TQ) and now is a standalone company. Image: drawing by Katja Fred , out of the pr.co e-book ‘Purpose’ Tags:
