We are a communications agency based in Bucharest, Romania, specialized in public relations (PR), investor relations (IR) and capital markets advisory. We are a boutique firm, working primarily with Romanian SMEs from a variety of sectors and advising local entrepreneurs how to maximise the opportunities in the capital markets. 

Established in January 2018, our firm boasts a diverse array of Clients. We provide the highest quality integrated communications and advisory services to companies that are already listed on Bucharest Stock Exchange’s Main and AeRO Markets as well as to entrepreneurial businesses that want to increase their profile on the local market. Having worked with a number of local and international investment funds and financial institutions, we are also specialized in high-impact financial communication.

We believe that good communication is the cornerstone of any successful business. At Cornerstone, we do not improve only the image, but most importantly, we lay down conditions to improve the valuation of our Clients’ businesses through strategic communications and top-class IR. 

Why communicate with Cornerstone?


Working and engaging with the right media shapes stakeholder’s opinions and, in the long run, raises the profile of your business. Any company has objectives and goals that can be supported through skilled communication – be it growing position on the local market, gaining recognition from stakeholders, attracting capital or even improving the valuation in case of companies that are listed or intend to list on the stock exchange.

At Cornerstone, we have the abilities to support companies reaching these goals, through tailor-made public relations and investor relations.
