About us

We envision a world where the relationship between startups and media is mutually beneficial.

Entrepreneurs are the engine that moves the world forward. They pour their hearts and souls into their ideas and work tirelessly to turn them into reality, but all too often spreading the word about their products is a significant challenge. Media can be a powerful growth engine, but access is restricted. It depends on who you know, not what you're building.

Similarly, writers and podcasters are bombarded with irrelevant pitches 24/7. Yet, when they need a true and unique expert's perspective, there is no easy way to find fresh, credible voices. This means that audiences have little choice but to hear from the same people over and over again. It's time to change this.

Our Story
On a rainy evening in the fall of 2018, Richard and Leia found themselves in a small restaurant near Boston's North End. Brought together by the Forbes Under 30 Conference, they were busy discussing a problem: why was it so hard for startups to spread the word about their products.

Both of them had faced this challenge: Richard as a startup founder in his native Ghana and Leia as the first marketing hire at two Boston startups. Ads were expensive, media was powerful but how were you supposed connect with the right writer or podcaster? That was only half of the problem. As a former startup blogger, Leia knew how hard it was to find high-quality content on a regular basis.

The restaurant had emptied out, and as the waiter started turning off the lights, Leia and Richard looked at one another: it was time to bring startups and media together. The rest, as they say, is history.
