Description

DISRUPTIVE STARTUPS HIJACK UK NEWS AGENDA!

Are you an entrepreneur looking for ways to generate more awareness of your brand and don’t know where to start? Do you wish you had a PR agency but the time isn’t right to commit to retainers? You’re not alone! As a leading equity crowdfunding platform, Seedrs understands startups better than most. We know that to grow and scale your operation you cannot always commit to external suppliers, but you still need a media presence to help your brand become famous.

The purpose of this event is to empower you to build relationships with journalists who can help bring your brand to the attention of investors and customers with a few tips of the trade. We will cover the basics of PR including how to pitch yourself and your brand to the UK media, how to define interesting news-hooks that will pique the interest of the press, tips on drafting an engaging press release and most importantly how to make contact with the right journalists.

What we do know is that the UK press are looking for interesting, engaging narrative and are eager to hear stories from startups and growth focused businesses. They just don’t always know how to reach you!
