While 2020 was a rough year for PR, the turmoil was felt most in the StartUp World and the PR vertical that services it. Reputations can make or break a start-up and dealing with the pandemic has not been an easy feat for most. PR teams handling startups have had to be quick to pivot with the fast-paced changes in the businesses while keeping pace with the fast-changing media landscape.
