Submit.co by BetaList provides you with a curated list of details for press coverage. The list is a simple online spreadsheet containing links to their submission page, twitter handle, reach and market. This is a great tool to get you started, however, journalists much prefer direct contact with the founders, and there's not much value in submitting your startup in bulk. It's way more effective to find a few key publications and go for the personal approach.
