Here’s some interesting exposure for your budding business, as well as practice pitching for the media (one important audience in raising money and awareness of your approach).
Although entrepreneurs are some of the most innovative people in our world today, many of them need help getting the word out. NPR and Green Spaces‘ introduce a new event series, “Meet the Press! Where Social Innovators Get Noticed.”
Through pitch nights, startups will gain exposure to 1) the host journalist’s publication and 2) a solid critique of their pitch. Five people will be selected to present their pitch. Ideally, the winning pitch will get featured, but that is up to the reporter!
The first event of the series will take place on Thursday, Dec. 15 at Green Spaces NY, 7-9 PM. Click here to submit your pitch and/or get a ticket. We will have a fun evening of cocktails and sharing stories!
Alex Goldmark will host the first event. Alex is a contributing editor for business at GOOD and a radio reporter for NPR station WNYC. He covers a motley mix of topics, depending on what’s fascinating at the time from social enterprise, philanthropy, and the ethics of money, to airplanes, biofuels and bikeshare, as well as a dash of art, motels, sports, politics, mustaches and deli meats.
