RPRN to introduce new agency platform at Startup Camp Montreal5; First woman-led company to present in the conference’s history
RushPRnews (RPRN) has been chosen as one of five Canadian startups to pitch at the upcoming Startup Camp Montreal5, on October 15 2009. The company was selected for its innovative online approach to publishing, broadcasting and analyzing the impact of a campaign on a brand, and for its forward-thinking team.
The event will welcome Chris Shipley, as guest of honor and speaker. Shipley is best known as the Executive Producer of the DEMO Conferences, with which she has lead over 1,500 new technology products to market.
RPRN is an online white label publishing platform for agencies, enabling them to create, broadcast, and measure client news efficiently and in real-time. With the platform, public relations, marketing, and investor relations agencies can measure and analyze the effectiveness of their activities, allowing them to fully demonstrate the value of their services to their clients.
With Startup Camp Montreal5, RPRN is opening their first round of fund raising, seeking seed money for product development, marketing, and team building.
Anne Howard, Founder, CEO and Editor-in-Chief of RPRN, is the first woman to present in the history of the conference, now in its fifth edition.
” RPRN’s platform was developed out of a real need that I experienced first-hand working in the public relations industry. There is a need to communicate in a transparent fashion with clients, to effectively broadcast to mainstream media and social media sites, and to analyze the success of our PR activities,” says Howard. Adding, ” we hope to make the process easier for both the practitioners and the clients.”
Startup Camp Montreal5 allows an opportunity for early stage companies, investors, media, and on-lookers alike to share information, network and form strategic alliances. Five selected entrepreneurs, including RPRN, will validate their pitches live, testing their presentations in front of a captive audience and receiving real-time feedback.
