PRWeb was founded in 1997 to help small businesses leverage the Internet to communicate their news to the public. In the process of doing so, PRWeb pioneered the direct-to-consumer press release, allowing companies for the first time to communicate their news directly to customers, prospects, analysts and the media.
During the past decade, PRWeb has been at the forefront of innovation, redefining the traditional press release and changing forever how organizations of all sizes distribute their news.
Today, PRWeb continues to set the standard for the distribution of news online. From the smallest business to the Fortune 500, PRWeb has helped over 40,000 organizations of all sizes maximize the online visibility of their news. PRWeb was acquired in 2006 by Vocus (NASDAQ: VOCS), a leader in on-demand software for Public Relations, and has been featured in publications such as Fortune and The Wall Street Journal.
