Launched edtech startup, Handshake, to the UK media & achieved quality national and trade coverage

The brief

Our job was to launch HR tech platform -- Handshake -- in the UK following their partnership with three English universities. The company needed to raise brand awareness in order to reach educators and students as well as businesses. We worked with the edtech firm as a project and only had one shot to make an impact. We did.

The results

The Sun and Scottish Sun featured Handshake in an article on helping graduates, and higher ed publication FE news, recruitment and HR press such as Onrec, business websites like Startacus and more all covered the story.
