October 2 – Enterprise Sales with Josh Lowry
NOTE: Oct 2 Meetup is free (as in $0), thanks to sponsorship from Appcontext (see discount information below for the Oct 23 event!). Please still RSVP so that we can print you out a name tag.
Join us next Wednesday for October's CEO Series. Josh Lowry is a master of sales and a great presenter. Even if you are building a B2C company, selling is an essential skill for all entrepreneurs, whether during fundraising or developing distribution relationships. If that is not enough, there will be beer, juice, soda, and maybe even a chip or two (no promises on the chip!:). I hope to see you there.
November 6 : Investor Pitch Decks with Deb Gabor.
Deb has helped a number of startups with their go to market messaging and investor pitch decks (including Ei member Duxter). She will be flying in from Texas to share her insights with us. If you want to get a preview, check out her site at www.InvestorPitches.com. I am confident this meetup will sell out, so reserve your place early.
4-table Pod Available at Ei
For a brief moment in time, all of the tables at Eastside Incubator were rented out (hooray!), but one of the teams is moving out in October (sad). That means that we have four tables available. Ei is a great place to work for software startups – drop in and check it out if you are interested, or forward this along to somebody who is looking for space for their software startup. Cost of 4 tables is $400/month. Check out http://eastsideincubator.com/pricing for details.
Bhanu is taking over the CEO Series
Anybody who has been lucky enough to spend time with Bhanu Mullapudi appreciates what a great step this is for the CEO Series. I have been running the CEO Series for the last couple of years. I have met some awesome entrepreneurs (speakers and guests alike). It is time to bring some new energy into the mix, and Bhanu is just the guy to do it. If you have not met Bhanu yet, look for him at the next CEO Series and say hi. Also, if you have ideas for future speakers, let him know!
A big thanks AppContext for sponsoring the Ei Newsletter this month.
