NEW YORK, November 6, 2019 — Wide Bridge, Inc. (WBI), a premier provider of investor relations and financial advisory services, today announced its partnership with MZ North America, the US division of MZ Group – a multinational company and the world’s largest independent investor relations and corporate communications firm, to jointly propel expansion of Pre-IPO Advisory Services aimed to guide companies through every step of the journey to a successful IPO.

Our team will serve as an internal chaperone, acting as an issuer’s advocate and advisor, exercising the highest degree of fiduciary duty to the client company, its management, its Board, and its stakeholders. I look forward to combining my Pre-IPO, investment banking, and IR experience with incredible technological and financial resources, diverse expertise, and global brand of MZ Group, to broadening the spectrum of its much-needed services into the pre-IPO segment.”
