“EAST VILLAGE. are one of the best agencies that I have had the pleasure to work with. They are great at being creative and proactive, and use very clever and subtle tone of message to targeted audiences. They will deliver a brief yet add value by creating even more exposure on social media channels with their attention to detail and partnership approach to client relationships. I highly recommend them.”
USING THE POWER OF PR
EAST VILLAGE. is a multi award-winning Birmingham PR agency working with tech brands that empower underserved communities, innovative founders creating everyday change, and organisations that feed the ecosystem.
The forward-thinkers, innovators, disruptors, and challenger brands. People who want to change the world, one idea at a time.
For us, PR isn’t just about being seen; it’s about crafting compelling stories that resonate, inspire, and get things moving. Whether you’re gearing up for a funding round, aiming to bolster your expert standing, or getting ready to put your innovation into new hands and markets, we’re here to support you at each stage of your growth journey.
We’re part of the mission to create a more equitable and inclusive landscape for underrepresented founders
The recent Rose Review, an independent review of female entrepreneurship, states that less than 1% of UK funding goes to all-female teams. Similarly, research by Extend Ventures uncovered that all-ethnic teams receive an average of just 1.7% of the venture capital investments at seed, early, and late-stage.
This is why we’re intentional about who we work with. We help underrepresented founders have their time in the spotlight: from training to help combat bias during the pitch process, to generating impressive PR that grabs the attention of Angel Investors and VCs.
Our mission is to get more role models into the media and help level the playing field for everyone.
Our work builds credibility, grabs the attention of funders, and puts more role models in the spotlight.
For 10 years, we’ve delivered media relations, stakeholder engagement, employer brand building, and reputation management, for businesses of all shapes and sizes.
From bootstrapping and pre-seed, right through to late-stage, we know what founders – just like you – need to help their businesses grow.
Our PR services include thought leadership, industry profiling and awards, seed and raise announcements, media relations, digital PR, influencer engagement, and so much more!
Longbridge Town Centre
For the launch of our new brand proposition, Rouge, following a full site refurb at the Bullring we went looking for a hyper-local PR agency that could bring fresh eyes to our fresh take on Café Rouge. We found the perfect partner in EAST VILLAGE. – from the first pitch, when they made us feel like old friends, to co-hosting our launch event with local influencers and the well connected that we needed to help spread the word. They were a pleasure to work with and drove some great results.
“What an utter joy to work with a company and its team in achieving our best outcome. Upon EV’s commitment to delivering PR for the Birmingham AIDS and HIV Memorial I can confirm they exceeded expectations. At the offset they listened, understood our vision and worked tirelessly to meet objectives and goals. At all times, the team were warm, friendly, capable, full of ideas and communicated efficiently. This in turn made us feel confident, in control and also stress free knowing they had our best interests at heart. Overall, the energy and efforts received from TeamEV ensured we reached our desired outcome. An extra shout-out goes to Hattie and George who excelled in their field. I would not hesitate in engaging Tara and her company EAST VILLAGE., moving forward, or recommending their services and team.”

EAST VILLAGE. has been an integral part to our Marketing and Communications work at the Foundation through supporting us with press releases, coverage, campaign planning, all whilst being a delight to work with. Our account manager, Jodie Tipper, has been imperative to representing the work of the Foundation within the region. We can’t thank Tara and the rest of EV. enough for believing in us and being part of the HoECF team!

We engaged the services of trusted EV. to deliver a successful launch campaign for our client Jukeboxers and they certainly delivered. From our initial consultation with Tara, who was brimming with ideas; to the execution and management by Hattie, Holly and our account manager Jodie: the whole process was seamless from start to finish. Friendly, accommodating and, as always, a pleasure to work with!

“Hattie, Tara and the EV. team really pulled out all the stops for the opening of our first Birmingham bar. They found the perfect balance between strategic account management and hands-on ‘doing’, and no task was too small for them to roll their sleeves up when our small team felt stretched. We were able to rely upon their considerable expertise and experience to create a memorable and successful opening that felt distinctly Vagabond and distinctly Birmingham.”

“Working with EAST VILLAGE. has been an absolute dream! They have done so much to help us tell our story and grow as a business. Whether speaking with new clients or partners, we regularly hear the phrase ‘I see you guys everywhere’ and a big part of this is due to the fantastic work of the EV team. They are always there when we need them and constantly impress us with the work that they produce, whether we are looking to announce the launch of a new product or share news on impact that we’ve created, they always know how to make it happen!”
Birmingham Enterprise Community

We count ourselves extremely lucky to have their support.”
“It’s been a pleasure to collaborate with Hattie, Holly, and the rest of the EAST VILLAGE. team on the opening of Treetop Adventure Golf Birmingham. We received excellent care, from pre- to post-launch, and leaned on their fantastic local expertise to ensure maximum impact. We look forward to continuing working with the team in the future.”
