Who doesn’t appreciate great PR? It leads to brand recognition and more business.
Let me use a case study to explain how simple it is with 1M/1M. One of our partners, Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur (IIT, KGP), held a custom roundtable with us in January 2012.
Note that Sramana Mitra, who runs 1M/1M, is in Silicon Valley. IIT KGP is based in Kharagpur, India. So, how did we conduct this roundtable?
IIT KGP selected five entrepreneurs to pitch their businesses to Sramana virtually, using WebEx. All five registered to pitch here.
During the event, Sramana was at her office in Silicon Valley. Entrepreneurs were in India. Despite the long distance, the discussion was engaging and deep and many strategic issues were addressed. Sramana promptly recapped the discussion here on her blog.
As soon as Sramana’s recap went up, many technology sites syndicated Sramana’s story. Here’s an example of the same story on ReadWriteWeb, one of the largest technology blogs in the world.
Would you like to achieve this kind of media coverage for your incubator?
