Press Hook Secures $1.5M in Funding

Press Hook, a Brooklyn based, tech-enabled, public relations platform, raised $1.5m in funding.

The round was led by Emergent Ventures, The Fund and TnT Ventures.

Founded in October 2020 by Michelle Songy, Press Hook connects brands with the media in a cost effective way. Clients range from consumer packaged goods to up and coming tech brands.

Highlights of the platform include a searchable database of digital press kits, the ability for journalists to connect with press contacts to request interviews or product samples, and places products into guides for journalists.

Prior to Press Hook, Songy founded a mobile payment app, Cake Technologies, a company she sold to American Express within 3 years, and later launched her own PR firm catered to startups.
