► you develop and execute the brand strategy for new YES!Delft initiatives like InnoCube, our expansion to The Hague and upcoming (international-) startup program collaborations
► you write press releases, and come up with brilliant web copy and blog content
► you manage YES!Delft’s PR/media calendar and make sure the right news items are released at the right time
► you proactively initiate and maintain relationships with journalists, bloggers, innovation blogs, and other influencers. You know exactly who to contact for which stories
► you make sure that YES!Delft gets mentioned on BNR Newsradio, Sprout and RTL Z
► you are closely connected with the YES!Delft startups so you are always on top of newsworthy developments in the startup community

 

WHAT YOUR DAY COULD LOOK LIKE

It’s Thursday. It’s an early morning, because at 08.00 am you’ll send out the press release you wrote yesterday about our new batch of YES!Delft startups. After this, you use your creative brain to write a blog about last night’s event (Meet the VC’s), and finish some copy for the website. In between writing, you get several calls from journalists that are interested in the press release – you connect them to the startups. You add the journalists to your PR database, and plan to reconnect with them in 2 weeks. Right before lunch, you sit down with an Artificial Intelligence startup and advise them on how to approach their product launch.

After the teamlunch, you sit down with Kartika (Marketing Manager) to discuss the PR calendar and pitch some new guest blog ideas from partners. Next, you head off to Rotterdam to meet with a content partner to discuss which of your stories will be published in this month’s edition. Finally, you make a last call with Silicon Canals to pitch a content partnership, and then you head home.
