In this episode of the Dear BAMf podcast, we speak with Natsuki Zihnioglu, Head of Portfolio Platform at DNX Ventures. Natsuki joined the firm in 2015 and built their operational process by leveraging her network within the venture world. Since then, she's been focusing on building the firm's portfolio platform team, where she supports early-stage portfolio companies. In this episode, Natsuki answers some tough marketing and PR questions from our listeners, including this one about a leaked embargo:
I had an embargo issue and now I'm unsure what the best protocol is for the other media that had the scoop. I'm the head of comms at my tech company and we had a piece of sizable news under embargo that accidentally leaked in a notable newsletter. The reporter apologized for the error and took down the leak news in the digital link. But the news is still in the newsletter. What should I tell the 20 or so other journalists that had the news under embargo? I don't want to burn their trust, but I'm unsure if any care about this newsletter, even though it is well read on the FinTech industry that we are in.
Listen now to hear how Natsuki advises this writer to move forward.
