Venturing Hoyas, join us the night of April 30th for a chat on Business Development with an excellent panel of NY startups:
Mike Hershfield, SailThru
Tanuj Parikh, GroupMe
Mike Sussman, AddThis
Andrea Hong, NewsCred
Julia Straus, BaubleBar
We'll start with the basics and have ample time for Q&A. Some high level topics below:
- What is BD?
- What backgrounds make sense for the role?
- BD vs Sales -- similarities, differences, overlap
- When should your company bring on a BD person? Junior or Senior?
- Consumer vs B2B differences (wrt to BD)
As always, we'll head out for drinks afterwards. Looking forward to seeing everyone soon!
