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.
1. Our media friends are looking for potential stories and need an efficient way to source them (and not just from PR people like us).
2. Founders and Heads of Marketing beyond those we represent at BAM like to tell their stories for potential coverage down the road.
3. We (BAM) love community building and believe MMD is a good way to foster relationships between our media, VC comms/marketing group, and startup community overall.
