Conrad Egusa, an entrepreneur, Global Mentor at 500 Startups and former VentureBeat writer, recognized that early-stage startups were priced out of a broken public relations industry and therefore launched Publicize (link below), which aims to disrupt the PR industry. In addition to a free, DIY, online platform that walks millions of startup founders from around the world through PR campaigns, Publicize also offers a low-cost service starting at $399 per month with a money back guarantee.
Publicize has worked with a variety of companies from Y Combinator startups to enterprises like Microsoft and Hallmark Cards. Conrad would be happy to share his experiences and provide insight into how startups and small businesses can get media coverage. For example a title for the talk could be: "How startups can get media coverage: Everything I've learned on the media from VentureBeat, to Y Combinator and Microsoft".
In the past year Conrad has been a guest speaker at Pioneers Festival in Austria (video link below) and has presented in front of numerous startup crowds associated with 500 Startups and Founder Institute in Chile, Mexico, Brazil and beyond.
