4 things to focus on instead of closing your next round
It’s mid 2017 and your Series _ hasn’t closed yet. Raising a round of funding may have been at the top of your to-do list this year, but now here we are – no big deposit. Bootstrapped has become less of a mode of operations and more of a way of life. So, here’s my advice, forget it. Ignore the possibility that your next round of funding will ever happen may seem like odd advice. But, it isn’t. Instead, focus on doing these 4 things, because nailing this list is exactly what translates into a fundable company.
The Greatest Sales Lesson
Why do some salespeople struggle, when others prove time and again they can be high performers, regardless of what they’re selling? What is the coveted formula? In this role play style delivery, watch as the presenter and tech company CEO plays both a young executive in way over his head, and a seasoned sales professional. As this entertaining storytelling session unfolds, you’ll be left with a valuable lesson that has the power to change the way you sell.
Hurry, cast your votes now, because voting closes on May 28th. If you’d like to review all the sessions, the general session link is here. Thank you for your support. We hope to see you at Denver Startup Week in September!
