FFA Presents: Access Media
June 21 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm$20 – $50
Media coverage is critical to legitimizing a new startup, and an integral part of all product launches. And yet most early stage founders don’t secure great media coverage because: they don’t know how to do so, lack the network that can help, or simply can’t spare cash to hire PR. Access Media is FFA’s solution to provide female founders with connections and know-how to permanently and meaningfully ‘up’ their media game. If you’re ready to explore media coverage, curious about how it works or just want to learn more — this event is for you.
Join media representatives from different local and national publications at the first ACCESS Media event.
This is your opportunity to learn how to craft your startup story, hone your messaging and secure media coverage. You’ll also have an opportunity pitch your story to media and get direct feedback!
We’ll start with a one hour panel with some of Seattle’s top business and tech journalists, who will demystify media coverage for the audience. This will be followed by breakout sessions, where founders will each have an opportunity to pitch to the journalists and get feedback on their story in 10 minute sessions. There is limited capacity for the pitching portion so secure your spot today.
This event is organized by the Female Founders Alliance, and is open to members and non-members alike. Capacity is limited so reserve a seat soon. If you want to participate in this event but can’t afford the ticket price, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for a discount.
