Ballou Is a Specialist Pan-European Tech PR Agency Working Across the Technology, Innovation And Venture Capital Sectors

Now in its twentieth year, Ballou is a full-service communications advisory firm, with experts working at both the strategic and tactical execution layer of its clients’ communications challenges. It has grown to become one of Europe’s top technology PR firms, with an enviable roster of clients.
That means we can take clients from a standing start, devising communications strategies and messaging, alongside a clear plan for execution across an agreed set of channels, including digital media and social media.

We work with clients who might be early in their communications journey, as well as organisations that have established comms teams looking for new thinking or a new approach.

Our value goes beyond media coverage, with a full suite of services structured around three key practice areas:
As a full service tech communications agency we help organisations and venture capital funds define, protect and grow their company reputation. We advise influential organisations on staying agile, shaping public policy, navigating critical issues and engaging key stakeholders, for both B2B and B2C. Effective strategic communications counsel and execution are vital to continued company growth and evolution.

Specialists deeply embedded in the European tech ecosystem

We work with b2b technology businesses, b2c businesses and venture capital funds facing corporate communications challenges.
We work primarily with companies at late stage fundraising, often just pre- or recently post-IPO. We have capital markets experience both in the UK and US. We occasionally work with earlier stage startups or first-time funds who have a particularly compelling story to tell, or where our expertise dovetails with the company’s strategic goals.
