DeSantis Breindel and Rooney & Associates Announce Launch of Brand Influence Guide for the Venture Capital Industry

New York, NY, Jan 15, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE via COMTEX) -- B2B branding and marketing firm DeSantis Breindel and strategic public relations firm, Rooney & Associates, announced today the launch of the Brand Influence Guide for the Venture Capital Industry (BIG:VC), a groundbreaking research initiative that will provide VC firms with a comprehensive view of the branding landscape and the role of brand in the VC industry.

The research, which will encompass three distinct surveys of key players in the VC industry, including entrepreneurs, limited partners and VC firms themselves, is being led in partnership with the NVCA and Dow Jones VentureSource.

"As power is consolidating in the VC industry, with fewer firms getting a greater share of LP funding, VC firms are beginning to realize the power that branding and marketing can have on dealflow and their ability to raise capital," said Howard Breindel, partner and co-founder of DeSantis Breindel. "The goal of this research project is to help VC marketers make more informed decisions about those activities." "The VC industry is at a decisive inflection point," said Terry Rooney, founder of Rooney & Associates. "There is a real perception gap between what limited partners and entrepreneurs think about the industry, and what VC firms believe about themselves and their industry. This survey aims to uncover the ways in which VC firms can leverage smart branding, marketing and PR to close that perception gap and make more meaningful connections with these critical audiences." "The time has never been better for the venture industry to look both outward to their stakeholders and inward to their own firms to understand what will best differentiate themselves from one another and from other alternative asset classes," said Emily Mendell, vice president of communications for the NVCA. "We look forward to working with some of the best minds in the branding and PR space today to explore and share winning strategies for the industry." BIG:VC will be fielded in the first quarter of 2013, with key findings released during the second quarter.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
