In this webinar, hosted by the University of Chicago Alumni Association, you will learn:
How PR fits into your marketing plan as a whole
How to pitch your story to journalists and bloggers
How to create your own content to draw interest

workshop: Tech for Non-Technical Founders
Do you have an idea for an app or a web-based business, but no idea how to begin building it? In this workshop you will get an overview of the basic disciplines that you need to have to run or launch a tech startup as a non-technical founder from someone who has done it themselves.
A non-technical founder’s job is not to learn to code, but to successfully manage the technology production process and make sure it aligns with business goals. To do this successfully, non-technical founders need to understand technology workflows, learn how to ask the right questions and collaborate with designers and developers.

Learn what brands are really doing and how that's impacting sales, marketing and the clothes on your back.
