Annette Shimada has spent more than two decades helping young technology companies thrive in an ever-noisier media market. She’s worked both the PR agency and corp comm (corporate communications) side of the desk in the heart of Silicon Valley. One of their clients is part of the Atlanta Area tech scene – Quantum Spatial! Her firm, Kickstart Consulting — named well before “Kickstarter” crowd sourcing was a thing — includes an “only senior” team coming from the strongest names in technology and PR brands. Whether listeners are technology focused or not, there is good ‘take away’ from this conversation for anyone in the early stages of launching a new venture! Today Annette lives in Santa Barbara CA with her husband, dog, and whichever of her 2 kids happens to be home at the time.
