Pitch the Press, the casual-format weekly pitch session where members of the startup, nonprofit and business communities share newsworthy updates with members of the local press, is getting a new year’s makeover.

The Thursday morning tradition that started in August as a way for startups at 1313 Innovation powered by Benjamin’s Desk to get more comfortable with media relations has opened up to organizations throughout the community. Now it’s changing its not-always-convenient 10:30 a.m. time slot to 4:00 p.m. on Thursdays.

It will remain a weekly event. “It keeps the momentum going,” said 1313 Innovations’s Lauren Spinelli, who leads the meetings.

The session, which lasts about an hour, will continue to take place in 1313 Innovation’s gathering room, followed by an informal happy hour for those who want to stay and network. The next session, the first in the new time slot, will be Jan. 4.

Pitch the Press is free and open to anyone who has business or nonprofit news to share. Email Lauren Spinelli at lspinelli@1313innovation.com with your news in advance if you plan to attend a session. To get a feel for what is expected, community members may also arrange to come and observe without pitching.
