about s2s pr

100% independent. 100% in-house.

We’re working every day to deliver the antidote to the stereotypes of one-size-fits-all PR agencies. 

As graduates of traditional big-box public relations agencies, former journalists, startup execs, and in-house global public relations and social media leaders, we understand the stakes. You need the right communications team to build, grow, and leverage the equity in your story—so that the potentially life-saving and world-changing technologies you’re building can reach people as soon as possible.

We’ve intentionally built s2s PR to be different, centering on the structural and cultural elements proven to drive success in the media, in the market, and on your team. Expect collaboration, transparency, and results.
