A fundraising round is a pivotal news moment for most startups, and making the most of one requires a thoughtful, strategic communications process that helps boost your profile on a more public stage. This year, the communications pros from Hotwire Global Communications are back with a cohort of founders, investors and media to discuss how to make the most of a new funding round – how fundraising has changed in 2020, getting investor attention amidst economic uncertainty, a pandemic and social unrest, and how to make sure your company’s narrative authentically ties into these broad societal issues.

Following this session join the speaker(s) in the Community Lounge for a 15 minute Q&A.
