Using Media to Tell Your Story

Telling your startup story or your founder story is crucial to growing and scaling your business. Understanding how print journalism and digital media organizations help amplify these stories can make or break your media strategy.  Join us to discuss how to engage with media to tell your startup story, get the coverage you desire, and rocket your exposure.  

This month is Women's History Month! We also highlight the women who have used media to highlight injustice and pushed movements for social and economic justice in their communities.
