Manila, Philippines Uniquecorn Strategies, the Philippines-born PR agency focused on startups, has formally launched its operations in the United Kingdom with a new London office. 

The PR agency will be under the corporate name Uniquecorn Worldwide Limited. In the UK, the agency has already represented event technology startup Tevent and has also worked on a Europe-wide PR remit for Butter, a platform for interactive workshops. With the opening of a local office, the company seeks to expand its services to more startups and technology companies based in the UK.

“Uniquecorn Strategies sees the UK as a strategic gateway to facilitate our ambitious worldwide expansion plan, providing our exceptional PR services to a broader range of startups. We are thrilled to leverage the UK’s growing startup ecosystem and economic progress to extend our successful representation of Tevent and Butter and make a significant contribution to the UK startup community,” said Dean Bernales, the founder and CEO of the company. 

Bernales has recently moved from Manila to London to lead the expansion in the market. Before establishing Uniquecorn Strategies, Bernales held various consultant and leadership roles in award-winning PR agencies worldwide, including Top Agency in the US, Luna PR in Dubai, and Joint in Hong Kong. He brings with him nine years of experience working with global brands across the technology, entertainment, and web3 verticals; and within this, have served several Singapore-based PR agencies, such as Pinpoint, Flame Comm, Precious Comm, and Grow.

In the Philippines, the PR agency has also strengthened its local operations by adding two accomplished media industry professionals to its advisory board. 

Joining the team are RJ Ledesma, a seasoned marketing expert, serial entrepreneur, and Consul of Monaco to the Philippines; and John Aguilar, a serial entrepreneur, best-selling author, and founder and host of CNN Philippines’ The Final Pitch. In their advisory roles, they will be offering support and strategic guidance to the company.

“As a fast-growing PR firm, we are fortunate to have RJ and John, two accomplished media industry veterans and serial entrepreneurs, on our advisory board. Their expertise will prove to be invaluable as we strive to achieve our business objectives and foster the growth of our company. Their strategic guidance and valuable insights will enable us to navigate the intricacies of the media industry and make informed decisions that drive growth and success,’ Bernales explained.

Founded in 2021, Uniquecorn Strategies has been on a fast growth trajectory, securing major projects with notable names in the local startup space such as Tier One Entertainment, Shoppertainment Live, PDAX, and Great Deals E-commerce Corp. 

The year after, it launched Blockceler8, the firm’s PR practice catering to web3 brands.
