There are certain prerequisites to being an entrepreneur. Topping the list? Perseverance. Being told “no” is just another daily meal you have to stomach. But, when it comes to pitching a story, there are some golden rules to follow.
Wrongfully interpreted perseverance can “turn off” a reporter. It’s about being timely, strategic, and transparent.
What do you want people to know about your business? When is the right time to reach out to a reporter? What are some stories from Philly’s thriving startup community that you haven’t heard? These are some of the topics we’ll be discussing — while also taking questions from the audience.
Our esteemed group of panelists includes:
- Brock Weatherup, Investor and President of Philly Startup Leaders
- Jeanne Mell, Vice President Marketing and Communications at University City Science Center
- Juliana Reyes, Lead Reporter for Technical.ly Philly
- Anthony Stipa, Public Relations Account Supervisor at Slice Communications
Join us on Jan. 20 at 12 p.m. as we talk about crafting your startup story.
