Media Matchmaking Day (MMD)


Tuesday, January 10, 2023

8am-11:30am PT


BAM created Media Matchmaking Day (MMD) back in 2020 (it was fully online then!) to help our media friends connect with great Founders and startups. It’s a “speed dating” event where Founders and Heads of Marketing meet with top tier media for 10 minutes each. We did our last MMD in NYC in July 2022 with 60+ founders and 50+ top tier media. It was a hit, so we’re bringing it back for 4 rounds in 2023.
