This is an experiment.

Given that the weather is really really really nice, and it’s not yet summer, I want try doing office hours on a table, on Rothschild Blvd, almost at the corner of Mazeh.

So What’s Office Hours?

My background is in Tech PR and Startup Communications strategies.

I’m sponsored by the Rackspace Startups Program to #BeHelpful and this is part of the way to meet that goal.

You will probably find me at just about every accelerator or workspace in the country and meetup event.

Rackspace LogoGiven that’s impossible to meet everyone, and given that the weather is really getting nicer and nicer, I want to try this experiment and see where it goes.

I’m offering any startup to join me for a 50 minute session where we can talk about your communications goals, take a glance at your messaging, and let me make some simple, and hopefully, very useful recommendations on where you might be able to improve.

What’s the Catch?

There isn’t one. This is part of what I do. And I just enjoy meeting cool startups and interesting people changing the world and doing things that matter.

Each session is different because each startup is different.

At the of the day, startups are made up people.

Some of you may have the coolest app or platform since sliced bread, but may have trouble articulating what you do, or what makes your startup compelling.

Others may be in the midst of a pivot, or just need some help in re-thinking what you say, how you say it, and may be trying to think about how to reach the journalists, bloggers and industry analysts that matter the most.

There’s even a coffee kiosk, where we can get something drink, and you can be my guest.

Change the world. Be Helpful

So How Do We Do This?

Best thing to do is send me an email to:  alan at weinkrantz dot com, and I will circle back with you.

Tell me as much as you can about your startup, where your pain points are, and please, be sure to include your phone number.

Yeah…. I know.

Phone calls are old school and all, but for me it’s a faster and easier way to connect, have a quick call, sync schedules and schedule a meeting.

I live in the neighborhood, and while I am going all over the country, if we can schedule a week or two out, I can generally see you within five to seven days of your request.

So, if you’re game, I’m game.

Let’s give it a whirl.
