Happy 2014 - January Eastside Incubator Newsletter

Matt D.
Bellevue, WA
I hope that everybody had a great winter break. I also hope you take a chance to RSVP to some of the upcoming events at Ei.
The Top 10 Reasons Why You Suck at Sales - Russell Benoraya, CEO of EveryMove
Next Wednesday (Jan 8) @ 7PM­
"Okay, that was meant to be a bit provocative but the reality is that most of us suck at sales and quite frankly, we don't like doing it.  I want to debunk some myths about the sales process and how you can reframe your perspective on sales to drive an organizational culture driven to generate revenue." Russell

Financial Modeling - Chris Dishman
January 15 @ 7PM­
Talk about the essential elements of a financial model, including:
-P&L and cash flow
-Detailed assumptions…but simple
-Organized operating expenses
-Fixed versus variable costs
-Direct costs of revenue identified
-Capital expenditures (e.g. headcount-driven)
If you have any suggestions about who you would like to see present at Ei (particularly if you can provide an introduction), please email Bhanu (or reply to this email and I will forward it along).
