Third Hemisphere is a technology and finance media relations firm for innovators and leaders who are breaking new ground, and changing the world for the better.
We specialise in accelerating and showcasing the Australian technology, venture capital, startup, and innovation ecosystem. This covers the gamut of technologies across a myriad of industries: financial and professional services, health sciences, agriculture, space, education, sustainability, energy, and broad deep tech.
We have a consistent track record in creating and implementing communications strategies that drive results for our clients with their investors, customers, partners, and government. This involves leveraging omnichannel communications across print, online, TV, presentations, investor documents, events, social networks, and podcasts.
Our key point of difference is our strategic approach to aligning our clients' commercial, capital raising, and customer acquisition goals with communications and operations execution. This has evolved from our combined decades of experience and training in strategic PR, finance, venture capital investment, and tech industry advisory. We take a long-term, holistic, and objective view of the business to ensure the model and fundamentals enhance market perception and drive growth.
We invest in our clients and build sustainable value from Seed to IPO and beyond.

A word from our fans...
"We’ve been working with Third Hemisphere for over a year.
They’re a pleasure to work with and importantly, understand complex finance and technology concepts.
Hannah and the team have done a stellar job in developing engaging stories that have produced fantastic results and supported the growth of both our consumer lending and investor offerings."
"Hannah and the Third Hemisphere team are always incredibly professional to deal with.
They make my job a lot easier which is paramount in a media role filled with tight deadlines and so many requests."
"Hannah and the team at Third Hemisphere really understand our business and the industry sectors we operate in.
Like us, they have a lot of hustle which we really appreciate given how hard it is for great stories to break through all the noise.
They have great expertise and experience in shaping our media strategy, and how to partner with media to achieve the best outcomes. It feels like Hannah is a part of our internal team. Our work always goes so smoothly, considering the stress and chaos of managing multiple stakeholders."
“Third Hemisphere is sensational to work with. They take the time to understand your business and then immerse themselves in it day to day. Hannah's results are second to none – who gets you on the front page of the AFR in month two!?”

“Hannah and Third Hemisphere understand the kind of content we are looking for at the Financial Review, and work well with their financial services clients to suggest story ideas that add value and will engage our audience.”
Founder & CEO
“Hannah is simply the best in the public relations business – her manifest experience, strategic thinking, charm, and writing brilliance turn opportunities into real outcomes. Synthesising
media and business objectives – she’s a weapon!”
Head of Corporate Affairs
"Hannah is the epitome of the communications professional: she is personable, attentive, strategic in her thinking, quietly forthright in her advice but also a good listener, a person able to distil the needs of her clients into straightforward, understandable and simple messages in easy-to-read, jargon-free language.
As a former section editor of a major Sydney metropolitan newspaper, I can also confirm she is a delightful writer.
"Hannah Moreno is an amazing public relations and professional communicator. I have worked with many large (some very well known) and small PR agencies in the past and none of them even come close to matching the work that Hannah produces. She is an excellent writer with the ability to translate highly complex themes into easy to digest stories that drive home the main points. The ability to do this is a very rare talent. She helped me build a brand and successfully lobby state and federal government on important matters to the deep tech startup community - Hannah is a rare find and her abilities are nothing short of amazing."

Pitches and the associated elements are delivered promptly, succinctly and smoothly packaged for optimal coverage.
I have been grateful for the way they have dealt with requests."
We'll take care of that.
