GATE Global Impact Inc., an electronic, regulatory compliant marketplace that provides market infrastructure and related services for the emerging impact investment industry, formally announced the hiring of Leverage PR to serve as its national agency of record. The New York City-based company provides investors information and metrics to transact, settle and clear assets while delivering exceptionally high standards of market transparency and security. Austin-based Leverage PR, a full-service public relations agency in the financial services and financial technology industries, will lead GATE’s public relations efforts, helping to educate global financial leaders and the financial media on the benefits of GATE’s impact investing marketplace and their work with the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC).
Leverage PR’s strategic approach will not only position GATE as a leader in impacting investing, but also promote its partnerships with leading organizations such as Microsoft, Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC), the United Nations, Prudential and other leaders in impact investing. Within the first week of the engagement, Leverage PR has secured interviews with leading publications such as The Street, Bloomberg and many other financial industry publications.
“We needed an agency with a deep understanding of technology’s impact on emerging financial markets,” says GATE Global CEO Vince Molinari. “Having worked with Leverage’s team over the past year in the emerging crowdfunding
industry, I gained an appreciation for their strong relationships with media and ability to execute.”
“The work that GATE is doing is saving and changing lives,” says Joy Schoffler, principal of Leverage PR. “When you look at the ‘impact’ of impact investing, you are not only helping people obtain a strong return on investment, you are also creating a social impact which has wonderful implications. Impact investing truly changes the world, but will never occur on a large scale without transparency and liquidity. GATE Global Impact is the missing piece of the puzzle that provides scalability—it is an honor to work with them and play a small part in helping those that are helping others.
Leverage PR’s responsibilities include public relations strategies across all media, assisting with media relations activities, identifying thought leadership and speaking opportunities, making strategic introductions in the crowdfunding space and delivering general marketing and public relations counsel.
