Whether you’re a solo entrepreneur, part of a small-but-growing company, or you’re well established, you know it can hard to get the media’s attention toward your business. That’s why we’ve set up Media Match - speed dating for you and reporters.

The process is simple - we give you a few minutes with each reporter. You bring your A-Game and pitch ideas for a story, why your company should be profiled, or anything related to your business. But be quick, smart, and interesting - you aren’t permitted to ask for contact info! Instead, it’s up to you to make a great impression and attract a reporter’s attention.

See our list of participating media representatives, and start practicing your pitch. Good luck!
