|how to get covered in Netpreneur
News we welcome submissions of news from Internet, information
technology, telecom, and other high tech startups company based in
Maryland, Virginia and Washington, DC. We cover timely stories
about milestone events at private, startup companies, such as new
products or services, funding received, mergers, acquisitions, and
significant partnerships. We try to be as inclusive as possible,
although we must make editorial judgments about the significance
of a story, interest to our readers, as well as the length of each
issue. Send announcements, as well as your comments and
suggestions, to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
currently has the following departments:
News About The Program includes stories about the Morino
Institute's Netpreneur program, it's projects and successes. If
you have a story about how the Program has helped you or your
business, we'd love to hear about it.
Regional Netpreneurs includes stories on a variety of topics
about entrepreneurial companies in the Greater Washington region,
such as new products or services; new versions of existing
products or services, alpha or beta test announcements, major
partnerships, and similar milestones.
Funding & Finance News
covers stories about the financial side of entrepreneurship. This
includes equity investments in private companies, M&A activity,
IPOs, local equity investment firms, and news and trends in the equity
investing markets. Since we focus on private firms, we do not cover
stories about stock prices, earnings, lines of credit, or private
placements by public companies, and we do not cover stories about
loans, lines of credit, or other debt financings.
Opportunities & Resources is an occasional department in
which we alert entrepreneurs to a broad range of timely topics
which can help them grow their businesses. These can include
anything from opportunities to present before funders, press
requests, contests, calls for papers, trade missions, new research
reports, new publications, and more.
Regional News is for stories about the Greater Washington region
and its place in the networked world. It can include anything from
demographic statistics to resources from local non-profits and
business assistance groups that are of interest to our readers.
News From The Us is where we cover significant stories from
local academic institutions which may be of interest to the
entrepreneurial community. While we do not cover specific classes
or ongoing degree programs, appropriate stories can include
partnerships with local businesses,
opportunities for entrepreneurs to work with universities,
relevant news about a school’s infrastructure or research work, new
degree programs in a tech-related areas, and special symposia
and similar activities.
Who’ware is about people in the local tech business
community. It is highly selective, however, focusing on
specifically on those he might be considered in "dealmaking"
positions. Usually this means certain CXO and VP positions (but
not all) as well as other players in the community, such as venture
capitalists, the media, and industry groups.
We cover additions to Boards of Directors in our occasional Boardwatch section.
There are some types
of stories simply does not cover, largely for space reasons, because of the volume of
such announcements would overwhelm Netpreneur News. These include, among others, earnings reports, new
sales or contracts, press mentions, awards, sites making
"Cool" or "Top #" lists; and selection of an ad
agency, law firm or other service provider.
