Tessa Clarke, CEO & Co-Founder Olio

“Transatlantic ticks every box an ambitious startup could want from a PR agency – great strategic advice, a black book that’s second to none, an ability to relentlessly generate coverage, access to a diverse team and their respective networks, super pragmatic and fun to work with; and all this combines to deliver a great ROI.”

Graham Mills, PhD, Co-Founder & Managing Director techspert.io

“As an early stage company, without much PR experience, we relied on the phenomenal expertise and guidance Transatlantic provided in crafting an impactful narrative that resonated with potential customers and future investors alike, securing an incredibly high profile life announcement of our raise on Sky News with Ian King. Their writing is superb and the speed at which they understood our mission and values was impressive, together giving us great confidence in this experience. They just ‘get’ start-ups.”

Pete Hykin, Co-Founder Penfold

“We met with a number of agencies and Transatlantic immediately impressed us with their depth of expertise, creativity, and understanding of our business and specific needs. They truly delivered when it came to media – getting us a great deal of high quality coverage in a short space of time. Gideon has become a trusted advisor to our business and founding team, which is been invaluable during the early, fast-moving years of our business.”

Ben Patten, Co-Founder GoodClub and ex-Farmdrop CEO

“Transatlantic has created a huge blast of publicity out of not very much and very quickly. Perhaps more importantly, they’ve shaped our thinking and actions for more and better PR in the future.”

Peter Platzer, CEO, Spire Global

“Spire has always had a strong sense of its own brand, but we were too close to it ourselves and had to find an outside perspective. We wanted to drive awareness of our service and products but we also needed to go back to basics and establish the true core of our story. Why did we exist as a business? What opportunity were we seeing for Spire in the marketplace? How should our industry and investors perceive us? Transatlantic helped us go back to the start and built a corporate narrative that fused positioning; a sense of purpose and a clear set of reasons why we were destined for success. They then set about finding coverage on FOX and SKY to put our new narrative to the test. Today, we feel significantly more confident in our brand message.”
