Startup sales & outreach

Updated: Apr 7, 2023

Josie Marshburn, the CEO of Sales Enablement Benchmark & Startups Ignite Mentor, takes us through tactical steps on the first conversation to build a relationship with a stakeholder. We focused primarily on the product sales conversation, but will also touched on relationship building. Why are we did this session? Most startups are pretty good at building things, but selling - that's where they usually hit their first wall. And we noticed that most founders end up talking about the thing they have built - instead of how what they built solves a problem and brings value to the person listening. Simply stated – the #1 thing a startup needs to succeed is customers. If you can make sales happen - the rest of the startup stuff... becomes much easier. (investment, team members, getting paid...)


Join us for the next Session

We meet on Saturdays at 10am (EST) over Zoom. Availability is limited so please sign up to request a private invitation.

We can keep this effort going with your help!

Join the team dedicated to supporting startups through this crisis.
