Wimbart, a Public Relations agency specializing in Africa & emerging markets, returns with the launch of its third PR Office Hours program. The program has been designed to equip African and Africa-focused startups with the PR tools required to support and achieve their business goals and will be delivered in partnership with Ventures Platform and Techpoint Africa, who will share their expert knowledge on how to connect and secure with investors, journalists and how to communicate with key stakeholders.
Wimbart Office Hours is targeted at early-stage startups and with a focus on companies building tech solutions for Africans on the continent or the Diaspora. Eligible startups must be less than two years old, have a minimum viable product available and may have secured investment(s) at no later than a seed-level stage. 20 start-ups will be selected by the Wimbart team to participate in the free programme.
Successful applicants will join an in-depth all-cohort PR webinar + Q&A with the PR agency’s founder and CEO, Jessica Hope as well as individual sessions led by partners Kola Aina, founder of Ventures Platform and Múyìwá Mátùlúkò, CEO of Techpoint Africa. These sessions will be followed by three dedicated one-on-one office hours sessions with senior members of the Wimbart team, where each company will deep dive into their communications challenges and ask questions that are specific to their business needs in order to help them attract customers, investments and talent.
DEADLINE: July 12, 2021
