Finnish clients include HappyOrNot, the Tampere-based maker of the iconic customer satisfaction smiley terminals, and Helsinki-headquartered game developers, Next Games, Futurefly, and PlayRaven. 

We know that 99% of traditional PR is pointless. Instead, we focus on delivering what startups actually need, deserve, and can leverage as part of their journey from early-stage and seed-funded to unicorn status. 

Therefore, you won’t find us staging silly stunts, lame photo opportunities, banal opinion polls and surveys, nor ever insulting the intelligence of journalists. 

We turn breaking news themes to the advantage of our clients, as well as devise creative strategies that make a startup’s functionality, founders, or existing user base become the news story. We then use this momentum to secure profiles of key staff, product reviews, and guarantee a presence at conferences and events.  

With a 20-strong team operating between the UK and US and securing high-impact exposure within international business, technology, and consumer media titles, Deliberate offers centralized news and media support for B2C and B2B startups with interesting stories to tell.
