These are also sectors that rely almost entirely on self-employed freelancers and small enterprises.

PRontheGO boosts publicity efforts for creative founders. The aim is to empower founders to take PR efforts in their own hands and spread the news about their ideas, inventions and innovations, even if they don’t have a big marketing budget at hand.
