Hello friends!

For our fourth event, we're switching things up a bit.

Joining us is a trio of enormously talented founders, including Wiley Cerilli ( of SinglePlatform ( and First Round Capital, Olga Vidisheva ( of Shoptiques (, and Leigh Drogen ( of Estimize (

Each of them has run hugely successful PR campaigns for their startups, without the help of a PR firm. They're a rare breed.

We'll talk about what it takes to run PR on your own as a founder and CEO. That includes crafting your company story, creating relationships with reporters, and learning press etiquette on the fly.

Squarespace ( has graciously offered to host us in their space for this event.

Once again, I'll be indulging my vanity as a moderator.

As always, we'll follow this rough schedule:

6:30 - Arrive and talk to each other
7:00 - Panel discussion
8:00 - More talking to each other
9:00 - Leave

And of course, your entry fee will be put directly towards snacks, beer, and gifts for our panelists.

Look forward to seeing all of you fine people there.
