SVP Marketing at RocketSpace
Reporter at The Information
Writer at TechCrunch
San Francisco Bureau Chief at USA Today
A Panel Discussion With Cory Weinberg, John Mannes, Jon Swartz and Ashleigh Harris
Getting media coverage for your startup can seem like a mysterious, dark art for founders. Which reporters should you reach out to? Why don't any of them reply to your messages? Why don't they think that your announcement is "newsworthy"?
On May 8, we are pleased to host Cory Weinberg, John Mannes and Jon Swartz — from The Information, USA Today and TechCrunch, respectively — for a panel discussion moderated by our SVP Marketing, Ashleigh Harris. We will discuss how to get on a reporter's radar and build goodwill (necessary in order to be included in future pieces), best practices for pitching your story, creative ways to get your company mentioned in the media, surefire ways to get on a reporter's bad side, and more!
We will open the discussion up to the audience for Q&A, so please bring your questions for our panelists!
