Technology 4 Good

Strategic consultation to technology-focused entrepreneurs and for-profit and nonprofit ventures.

Headquartered at Mission & 5th, in the heart of San Francisco’s technology and social innovation center, PR & Company provides strategic consultation to technology-focused entrepreneurs and for-profit and nonprofit ventures with a commitment to scaling social impact. Combining our experience working with dot.com start-ups back in the 1990s with a deep history in politics and the social change sector, our team offers a unique understanding of where business and social impact converge.

Our media relations strategies and outreach put Fundly, the world’s largest crowdfunding-for-good platform, on the map. We built connections to global changemakers in our work with the Vodafone Americas Foundation’s Wireless Innovation Project. Partnering with the Bay Area technology community, we launched a series of wildly successful Technology for Obama events featured in the New York Times and across the Bay Area for our wall-to-wall attendance.

Impact on Technology

See how we’ve made a difference in the technology sector.

Compass Family Services

Partnering 100 Year-Old Nonprofit with Tech Leaders to Alleviate Family Homelessness

Compass Family Services needed to elevate its work among civic, foundation and business stakeholders to reach its $2 million fundraising goal during its Centennial anniversary of securing better futures for homeless families.

PRCO has helped establish Compass as a nonprofit of choice for San Francisco’s business community, particularly within booming technology community, engaging tech leaders in high profile initiatives to support the vital programs Compass provides homeless families.

Technology for Obama

Innovating High Impact Events to Catalyze Tech Community

Technology for Obama’s (T4O) national co-chairs needed to mobilize tech hubs across the country to support President Obama’s re-election. PRCO produced a high profile campaign event series in the Bay Area, along with an events and communications toolkit for nationwide implementation.

Our seven standing room only events – including a 650 person debate watching party – drew thousands of supporters, generated new campaign volunteers and donations and won the attention of everyone from the New York Times to Obama campaign chiefs.

Fundly

Breaking Out from the Crowdfunding Crowd

Fundly, the world’s largest crowdfunding-for-good platform, was challenged to distinguish itself among a crowded field of competitors and win over a philanthropic community slow to adopt new technologies. PRCO created breakthrough messaging and a relentless communications strategy to win media, philanthropy and nonprofit attention.

Our work generated millions for Fundly campaigns ranging from Hurricane Sandy to Habitat for Humanity, landed Fundly front and center of every major media outlet and helped speed crowdfunding’s adoption as the future of philanthropy.
