About

Be-cause works with corporates, local brands, start-ups and NGOs to generate awareness around innovative new projects, local business, sustainability, education and health to name a few key areas. We are a young, creative and dynamic communications hub – think public relations and a newsroom merged into one. Using everyday communication tools to inform you about what’s going on, where, when, why it’s happening and how is pretty much in a nutshell what we do. Staying ahead and on top of the evolving media environment is our personal mission and also what sets us apart. We live, love and breathe what we do and work with clients who feel the same way about their brands!
