NEW YORK & BALA CYNWYD, Pa. & TEL AVIV, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Cline Group (www.theclinegroup.com), a leading international strategic marketing and communications agency, has begun 2014 with its strongest growth to-date by opening a Manhattan office, expanding service offerings, and adding over a dozen global clients.
After expanding to Naples, Italy in the third quarter of 2013, The Cline Group’s Manhattan office becomes its fourth location, complementing its Philadelphia headquarters and Tel Aviv office. As the first of many new offices in its 2014 global expansion, New York represents a significant milestone in The Cline Group’s mission to help startups through the principles of social entrepreneurship. Alongside the new office, The Cline Group and CEO Josh Cline’s venture fund, Cline Ventures has announced two new service offerings in 2014: 1) Virtual Chief Marketing Officer and 2) Business Consultation, helping companies in multiple core aspects—business models, market research, funding and business development. The Cline Group is also looking to expand to San Francisco, Boston, Berlin and Brazil.
The Cline Group, founded under the principles of international social entrepreneurship, provides companies from boot-strapped to series B, the most affordable, sensible way to accelerate their business on a global level. Through partnering with businesses that would otherwise not have the capital to expand internationally, The Cline Group helps foster a thriving ecosystem of innovation and gives startups the ability to compete on the global stage. Recently, over a dozen new companies and organizations have joined the TCG global family, including Israel- based companies; Evento, KIDO’Z, Lingua.ly, TOMODO, MarketYze, and US based companies; VapeXhale, Foundersuite, INE Ventures and Stayful.
“The Cline Group and Josh Cline go far and beyond their duty to make startups succeed in their early stages. Their excellent media relations efforts, strategy and professionalism have provided us with the results we needed to see our business grow to the next level. The Cline Group is an agency that truly partners with their clients and has effective models to make it easier for startups to compete with larger funded companies,” said MyPermissions CEO Olivier Amar.
President and CEO Josh Cline takes a holistic approach to marketing and PR, mapping strategic objectives to long and short term business goals. In conjunction Josh Cline’s venture fund, Cline Ventures, the work of The Cline Group helps start-ups get to market, gain penetration and raise funding quickly.
“The Cline Group has a philosophy that goes beyond generating the best media coverage for our clients—we build real alliances with them,” said Josh Cline. “Publicity and market perception needs to be properly mapped to a company’s business goals. Only then will it result in an increased user base, a higher company valuation or interest from new investors. We use our influence to help clients strike strategic industry partnerships that will raise their visibility and revenue and arrange introductions to VCs and angels who could become our clients’ next investors.”
