Battery assists its portfolio companies with a range of public-relations and communications issues. Battery’s communications team—led by Vice President Rebecca Buckman and Marketing Manager Alicia Halatsis—is a resource for early-stage companies just starting to tell their stories, as well as more-mature firms that may want to re-position their brands in advance of a liquidity event or restructuring, or get help during a crisis. Battery also employs an outside PR firm to assist with some portfolio-company announcements and offer ongoing, strategic guidance. Specific services include:
At Battery, business development is built into our DNA. We don’t segregate this function to a certain segment of our staff. Everyone at the firm—from general partners to other investment-team members to operations professionals—works tirelessly to connect our portfolio executives with partners and potential new customers. We strive to maintain a set of high-level, leverage-able relationships with CIOs, CTOs, CMOs and other buyers of technology around the globe—as well as with top executives at larger corporations. We also hold small and large events, ranging from intimate dinners to larger summits, year-round, to facilitate customer and partner introductions.
Talent management and acquisition have long been a focus at Battery. This discipline is led by Kelly Kinnard, Battery’s VP of Talent. Kelly is a resource for startups needing to create and develop a high-performance organization, as well as for late-stage companies looking for specific executive talent.
Battery’s HR services include:
Our investment staff works together as a single, global unit to evaluate and support potential investments. Every portfolio company — before, during and after we invest — works with a dedicated team of experts to help it grow.
