New York City– December 20, 2017 — PR Boutiques International™(PRBI) today announced the launch of a new accelerator program in San Francisco to give startups in several key industries a leg up by providing them with professional communications services.

The accelerator will be located in the San Francisco offices of PR Boutiques International, but the program is open to all startups and early stage businesses located across the globe. PRBI is a 10-year-old international network of independently-owned strategic communications firms, with members on four continents. The accelerator program will be led by PRBI President Lee Weinstein (Weinstein PR – Portland, Oregon) and directed by Pawel Osowski (Warsaw Consultants – Warsaw, Poland).

“The new PRBI Accelerator program offers promising startups the communications and marketing services they need to properly scale up and establish a foothold in the industries they plan to disrupt,” said Lee Weinstein. “This may include strategic communications planning, input on websites, advice on news announcements, contacting media, and other services to target influencers and market their products or services, and use of marketing analytics to measure communications results.”
“PRBI is an organization founded by entrepreneurs who have the skills, resources, and desire to help other entrepreneurs in industry-changing companies to communicate and market effectively for growth and long-term prosperity,” said Pawel Osowski. “PRBI CEOs are willing to mentor, educate, connect and globally assist some of the world’s most talented – but under-recognized – early stage businesses. With offices around the world, we can leverage projects and offer outstanding assistance to carefully selected companies.”
Accelerator participants will receive a wealth of benefits, including more than US $50,000 worth of services that will help advance their projects or businesses, including access to valuable marketing and communications data, world class mentorship and connections and investor credibility.
