About Stonerose

Launched in 2009, STONEROSE® ADVISORS, LLC is a Washington DC-based communications consultancy for technology companies, family offices and venture capital firms. We help you define your message and tell your story to your most important stakeholders, to broaden understanding, create awareness and shape opinion.

The company name was inspired by the 1799 discovery in Egypt of the Rosetta Stone, an archeological breakthrough that enabled the translation of obscure script into understandable language. Translating technology’s potential or a new investing thesis into a crisp narrative, can raise your visibility and enable opinion makers to understand and engage with your business.

Stonerose is led by Meghan Roman, a veteran communications strategist who has worked with some of the best performing venture capital firms and pioneers behind the most innovative technologies of our time. Meghan serves as the principal consultant, often becoming an adjunct member of your organization. When other functional areas are required – think design, event planning or photography – the right talent is sourced from a network of affiliates and your communications team can dynamically expand.
