PRHUB Integrated Marketing Communications has announced its partnership with Singapore-headquartered APRW, to launch a specialised communications practice. The partnership targets start-ups looking to expand within and beyond Asia-pacific (APAC) region. The new practice is established under US-headquartered IPREX, the premier international communications network with 100+ communications partners worldwide. It will be co-led by Xavier PRabhu, Founder and Managing Director of PRHUB & Regional President for APAC and member of the global Board at IPREX, and Anu Gupta, Director of APRW.
The specialised communications practice aims to provide a full suite of communications services for start-ups by leveraging IPREX’s global network of communication partners.
Commenting on the new practice, Julie Exner, IPREX Global President, said,“ Spread across India, China, Indonesia and Singapore among other countries in the region, there is absolutely no doubt that the start-up ecosystem in the APAC is one of the most dynamic and thriving ecosystems globally. APRW and PRHUB are highly established partners with a deep understanding of the ecosystem. With their expertise and support from other partners in key markets, I am confident that the new practice will be a success and bring start-ups to greater heights.”
Said PRabhu, “Many start-ups are looking to scale beyond their home markets and leverage the many opportunities that APAC has to offer. As they grow, they will require communication agencies who can provide holistic regional communications strategies to boost their visibility and strengthen their reputations. Our practice will be able to offer a global network of esteemed communication partners with a huge repertoire of capabilities and expertise. PRHUB with its SAARC and APRW, with its South East Asia reach, are also perfectly poised to offer the widest available coverage for any start-up looking at multiple markets in the region.”
Added Gupta, “More than ever we see the growing linkage between markets in the region. The linkage between India and Singapore is so strong and deep that at times one cannot even distinguish or separate. Indonesia is emerging as a go-to market for most start-ups in the region. China has had huge success with some of the world’s largest start-ups coming from there. Japan and Australia are witnessing a surge in start-up activity. So, the timing of this practice is apt and the value we bring to the start-ups looking to grow in the region and beyond, is immense. I look forward to working with Xavier and other partners in the region to make this practice a success and of course with start-ups across the region in fuelling their growth plans.”
