ABOUT US

The Catapult Journey

Since 9.9.99, we’ve been helping tech companies articulate and tell compelling stories that build awareness, differentiation and market-leading positions. Just as the technology industry has changed and matured, Catapult has adapted as well – from traditional PR to content-driven, digitally savvy marketers that leverage all available tools and avenues to help our clients win in the marketplace.  We’re a group of passionate, smart (and nice) people that clients love to work with, and we deliver results that rank among the best in the business.

Our Approach

Our approach is to always think BIG. We don’t want clients just to be market “leaders,” but market “drivers.” Our work aims to inspire positive change from your customers, employees and the industry at large. We love to define and build categories. We love to out-execute our clients’ competitors. We love to produce a high volume of quality content, and see that content syndicated through print, digital and social media channels to drive ROI. We love to influence the influencers (media and analysts) – and to see your messaging and PR-based programs speed market adoption and maturity of industry advancements. Our approach is to always exceed client expectations.   

Catapult Difference

Perhaps the greatest difference we bring to the PR table is our thinking – and our willingness to give honest feedback when and where it’s needed. Helping clients define and build new categories takes a blend of highly strategic thinking and excellent PR/social media program execution. Launching or re-launching a company and/or product requires the same chops. So does helping a client continuously grow and stay relevant. We do this as a matter of course – and repeatedly hear from clients that the “Catapult Way” is a very unique PR experience.
