Our Practice Areas

When effective, public relations is the Rosetta Stone between companies who have a compelling story to tell and the journalists looking for amazing stories. At Upright, we have been on both sides of this relationship and understand the frustrations both feel and strive to reduce those pressure points.

Cannabis

All of us at Upright have been touched either directly or indirectly by the benefits of cannabis. We have the desire and the know-how to elevate the perception of the industry through skilled public relations efforts, especially as cannabis continues to gain cultural acceptance and legislation is continually passed across the nation for both medical and adult use.

B2B Technology & Innovation

Whether your company is just spreading its wings or if your PR needs are changing due to market conditions, you need the right communications and messaging infrastructure in place to drive media coverage, buzz and business.

IPOs & Major Capital Funding

Companies are finding innovative ways to fund their ventures. Part of the funding process is making sure stakeholders, potential investors and customers know that your company is strong and committed to long term growth. Another part is ensuring you make the most of your funding announcement. If your company is going public, you need a solid communications strategy leading up to, and going beyond the IPO.

Venture Capital

It takes a delicate balance to promote both your venture capital firm and your portfolio companies. If your portfolio companies are benefiting from your strategic wisdom, your voice and their voices should resonate as visionary.
