Do you own or manage a small business?

Yes - Slash8 is a mobile payments iPhone app. It's like having an ATM in your pocket - with Slash8 you can pay back your friends, make a purchase, or simply pay the baby sitter all with the smart phone you have in your pocket today. No new hardware, no credit card reader, just a simple download from the app store and with a few taps you can pay anyone, anywhere without your wallet!

What kind of news media coverage are you seeking: TV, newspaper, magazines, trade journals, online?

Small business & Tech publications are our main goals. Small business's are who we can add the most value to with our state of the art payments technology, and tech publications are key to letting early adopters try out our person to person tech and getting their feedback.

Have you ever gotten media coverage? If so, what?

A small boutique blog mentioned us in an article

Would you like to attend a networking Happy Hour with journalists and other business professionals?

Definitely! These are super hard to find!

What other PR resources do you need to succeed: PR strategy, press release tips, reporter pitching tools, etc.?

Not sure, hope to find out


Hi I'm C.J. - I recently moved from Silicon Valley to LA to co-found my company Slash8. I'm excited to meet other tech entrepreneurs & hackers in LA. http://www.slash8...­
