BerlinRosen Holdings announced today that it has made a majority investment in Inkhouse, an industry-leading technology communications agency. The investment will bolster BerlinRosen Holdings’ network, marking the group’s 5th major investment in 10 months, to provide clients with unparalleled global full-service communications and marketing services.
Founded in 2007, Inkhouse is a strategic communications firm with over 140 people headquartered in Boston, with offices in seven major cities, including hybrid and fully remote employees across 16 states. The agency provides innovative communications for its clients across technology, artificial intelligence, healthcare, venture capital, climate tech, education, consumer, and security, representing clients such as Databricks, Dialpad, ForgeRock, Harvard University’s Saul Zaentz Early Education Initiative, Incredible Health, The Markup, Raytheon, VMware, Xerox and ZwitterCo.
“The BerlinRosen partnership is an affirmation of our commitment to our people and our clients. BerlinRosen is a growth partner that shares our belief that doing good in the world and doing well in business should be mutually inclusive. Together, we’ll continue to enhance our culture, while serving the changing needs of our clients,” said Beth Monaghan, founder and CEO of Inkhouse. “As we sit at the cusp of the next phase of technological advancement — AI, climate tech, healthcare, space and more — this is a moment to invest in our future with new capabilities and partnerships to anticipate what’s next. It would be difficult to overstate my admiration for what BerlinRosen is building.”
Inkhouse will continue to retain its brand, remain independent and under its existing leadership. The agency will immediately have access to the expanded resources and talent of the BerlinRosen network, which includes advertising, public affairs, regulatory consulting, crisis management, digital marketing, content studio, DEI, and influencer marketing.
“We have tremendous respect for Inkhouse and the team that Beth has built. This partnership strengthens our ability to deliver strategic communications that help our clients stand out in an ever-evolving business landscape,” said Jonathan Rosen, principal & co-founder at BerlinRosen. “Inkhouse shares our company values, commitment to putting clients first, and a unique storytelling method to deliver best in class services.”
This investment brings BerlinRosen Holdings’ collective size to over 600 strategists across the United States and Europe. Inkhouse bolsters the holding company’s technology division across BerlinRosen, representing clients including Samsung, Mozilla, Blink Energy, and Cornell Tech, and Glen Echo Group, representing clients including Google, the Hewlett Foundation Cyber Initiative, the American Library Association, and Twilio. With the addition of Inkhouse, BerlinRosen Holdings’ combined resources and expertise will serve clients in even more dynamic and differentiated ways.
The partnership comes on the heels of several major investments for BerlinRosen, including majority investments in industry-leading firms across different sectors including Derris, Glen Echo Group, M18, and Onward, and expansion of its European footprint with a new office in Amsterdam.
