We turn fast-growing but unknown African tech startups into category leaders.GET IN TOUCH
We value creativity, research, and authentic storytelling. We put people before products in our communications.
We’ve lived in Africa for over a decade and are passionate about telling the stories of how technology is shaping the continent — both people and society.
We are big believers in data, insights, and sharp analysis to elevate our clients’ profiles, authority, and visibility.
We specialize in working with challenger brands: companies that have rocketship-like growth but poor visibility.
The CEO/founders of challenger brands tend to focus on business operations and avoid the spotlight. Their devotion to the behind the scenes has come at the expense of their storytelling. When they look to raise their public profile, they face well-funded rivals who dominate public perception as the industry leader – simply because they raised more money.
This is our sweet spot: we transform challenger companies into industry leaders with our data and insights-driven PR.
No Filter PR is a full service public relations agency that specializes in helping challenger brands turn into industry leaders.
Without strategy, PR devolves into vanity metrics. At No Filter, we devise a PR plan that links our PR/ communications work to your business goals.
We have close relationships with top tier media in Africa. As former journalists, we know what the media wants and how to pitch our clients to maximize media coverage.
With our network of talented writers, we write all forms of content for our clients: op-eds and contributor pieces, blog posts, and longer form thought leadership content.
Anyone can buy advertising. But effective PR is priceless.
PR helps you build visibility, credibility, and authority with your key audiences to win their trust.
When a journalist writes about your company or quotes you, you gain credibility that can’t be bought.
You position yourself and your company as an authoritative industry source when you write thoughtful and substantive content.
You become top-of-mind with key audiences (investors, customers, and talent).
When your company is well known, everything becomes easier: fundraising, sales conversion, and hiring the best people.
When we work with a new client, we master their business, learning it inside and out. We live in West Africa, and bring our deep knowledge of the region and markets to our communications work. And, we excel in delivering massive results.
