Calysto Communications Introduces New Subsidiary, Avante

ATLANTA (November 18, 2014) – Calysto Communications (, a global PR and marketing communications agency specializing in building awareness through content services, public relations and social media for the mobile, wireless and telecom industries, announced today that it has opened the doors of a new Calysto company, Avante.

Avante is a wholly owned subsidiary of Calysto and will operate as a stand-alone company, with industry veteran Kristine Bennett leading Avante as President while Laura Borgstede remains CEO of Calysto. Bennett has been working side-by-side with Borgstede for the past 14 years at Calysto.

Like Calysto, Avante serves the mobile, wireless and telecom industries, but will allow clients to focus on a simple and focused program with strict budgetary needs.

Avante will:

  • concentrate on clients with an activity budget level of less than $4,000 per month.
  • provide its clients deep industry knowledge and a focused program to help move business forward.
  • enable companies to start small and grow at their own pace.
  • bring companies an experienced team with 15-30 years in the industry.

“We feel that Avante will now provide the industry an opportunity to get started on content marketing, social media and PR programs within their budget, no matter what it is,” said Laura Borgstede, CEO of Calysto Communications. “This allows them a couple of options, all within a one-stop shop. Calysto has won awards for cost-effective programs and this just strategically takes it up another level.”

“My years with Calysto have given me a tremendous skill set that I will be applying to Avante,” said Bennett. “Our goal is to get companies up and running with PR programs as quickly as possible in order to bring concentrated results immediately.”

Avante is proud to be working with a few clients already such as NetworkIP.
