Let's keep the momentum going with another great event for NJ entrepreneurs and startups. This event hosted in in conjunction with our other meetup group All Things Marketing.

Very happy to announce two speakers (and possibly a 3rd) joining us for our next meetup. Looking forward to an extremely insightful program!

SPEAKER: Baroum Mrad

Baroum has worked with SHI International for 4 years setting up offices and marketing departments in Europe and US, and he was hired by HEALTHEC (formerly IGI Health) to lead the re-branding of the company and create a new marketing department. He founded a start-up at the age of 19 (new Generation Cinema), which he sold in 2004, and worked ever since with multiple start-ups, such as Noom, Gorgias Press, EssereBella, and others.  He is a motivational speaker, mentor and speaks at several events in Europe and US.

Topic: Business Sustainability and Market Research to help startups achieve success and sustainable revenue.

SPEAKER: Ron Garrett

Ron Garrett is currently the Head of Consulting at a digital marketing agency in Manhattan called Distilled. Currently he is in charge of leading business and consulting strategy, as well as training across 3 offices in London, New York, and Seattle. He has over 10 years of business development and consulting experience and has worked with start-ups like Hipmunk, Bonobos, and Grovo to help them identify their business goals and structure their marketing plans. Needless to say he is a huge geek for start-up, angel investing, and venture capital.

Topic: Ron will be discussing his experience working with start-ups to assess their business model, industry, whether or not they have product market fit, and how to integrate these elements into a marketing strategy for your business.

I am looking for those who are looking for additional income or keeping their options open. Our company hired over 11,000 people last month!
