NEW YORK, March 31, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Mediastar Ventures, a media centric advisory firm, announced the successful completion of four years of advisory engagements on behalf of a variety of old and new media enterprises, enabling these companies to move to the next stage of their strategic goals.
Thomas F. Burchill, Chairman and CEO, remarked that it has been a totally fulfilling experience to be able to put his company's deep operating experience and access to growth capital to work on behalf of its client roster in a fast moving media landscape. Among the company's assignments during this period are the following...
During this period, Mediastar worked with a multi-platform content provider in the booming parenting space, sourcing capital, refining business strategy, and culminating in that company's eventual sale to a major media combine. The key to success was a close working partnership with the founding entrepreneurs in which Mediastar served as an extended resource of the company's management team.
Mediastar also worked closely with a niche oriented regional television network, assisting in the development of a broader business strategy and culminating in the formation of an equity partnership between the network and a major magazine with a similar focus. The resulting multi-platform media offering has enabled the network to secure funding for a national cable network launch.
Mediastar collaborated with the founder of a software company in the media analytics space to refine the product offering, broaden the customer base via re-seller relationships and assist in corporate development in the negotiation of a prospective merger with a competing firm.
