Tomorrow is a big day for startup founders preparing to exhibit at Disrupt 2020 on Digital Startup Alley. We're launching the first of three exclusive, interactive webinars to help exhibitors get the most out of their Startup Alley experience.
Tune in tomorrow, August 12th, at 1pm. PT / 4pm ET for the pros and cons of working with the press. Presenting your company to the media is both a skill and an art form. It takes thought and practice – and media training can help you make a compelling story. Hundreds of journalists from around the world will be on the lookout for exciting stories at Disrupt 2020, and this workshop can help you get their attention.
A positive media presence is essential for early-stage startups. It can shed the spotlight on your business, attract potential customers, and speed up your funding. Or, as Luke Heron, CEO of TestCard and experienced Startup Alley exhibitor, puts it:
“Reporting is the lifeblood of a startup. Cash at the beginning of the start-up journey is hard to come by, and an article from a credible organization can help set things in the right direction. "
During tomorrow's media training, theinformationsuperhighway writers and editors Greg Kumparak, Anthony Ha and Ingrid Lunden – experts in interviewing startup founders – will discuss best practices with the press. You will learn what journalists are looking for and how to avoid the pitfalls that could trigger an interview.
If you are still on the fence about exhibiting in Startup Alley, keep the following in mind: Disrupt 2020 spans five days and is the largest and longest disrupt of all time. You can network with thousands of attendees from around the world. And when you buy your Disrupt Digital Startup Alley package today, you can take part in tomorrow's media training.
