Leading VC firm appoints Boldspace to drive European PR
Digital Horizon, the venture fund and venture builder investment company, has appointed Boldspace to lead its PR and communications on a retained basis in the UK and Europe following a competitive pitch.
Boldspace will drive PR for the firm, building its profile in the UK and Europe to drive awareness and enhance its reputation with investors across the tech space. The agency will also support firms emerging from the Digital Horizon Venture Builder, which builds leading digital businesses from scratch.
The VC, which has offices in London, Moscow and Tel Aviv, recently announced the launch of its second venture fund. The $200 million fund builds on the success of its first, which invested in high-growth businesses including Klarna, Monday.com and Cuvva, and has so far returned 40% per annum to investors.
The account will be led by Boldspace co-founder Mike Robb and Associate Director Tom Yazdi, reporting to Digital Horizon Managing Partner, Irene Vaksman.
Irene Vaksman, Managing Partner at Digital Horizon, said: “While we have been present in the UK market for many years, we have had a relatively low profile. So this is an exciting time for us as we tell our story and demonstrate our difference to a much wider audience across the tech space. We are delighted to be working with Boldspace, which brings a fresh, new approach as our PR partner, and look forward to working with them in the years ahead.”
Mike Robb, Co-founder and Managing Director of Boldspace, said: “Digital Horizon has a fundamentally different and exciting approach – yes they are a hugely successful investor, but they also bring deep expertise to the table to build a next generation of leading tech businesses from scratch. They have an enviable track record, working with some of the most exciting tech businesses in Europe like Klarna to deliver incredible returns. This is no ordinary VC, which is why we are so excited to be working with them to enhance their story in the marketplace.”
