What does PR mean to your Startup ? Is it getting into TechCrunch or Hacker News ? Or perhaps a friendly tweet from one of the Silicon Valley Gurus? Or perhaps being able to announce your entry into 500 Startups? Actually for a Startup that isn’t ready with a loyal band of users PR can work against you!!

We're bringing together pioneering marketing and PR experts to give you practical advice and lessons they have learned in the trade. Not only will you learn from their presentations, but they'll also be on hand to help you with specific questions and dilemmas you may be facing during a "5 minute clinics session" at the end of the Masterclass.
