  • Product Marketing Advice for Early-Stage Startups

    PLEASE REGISTER ON EVENTBRITE TO ATTEND: http://bit.ly/2KQPoDy “Good product marketing makes it easy to explain what you do, why you do it, and who it’s for.” - Gaetano DiNardi, VP of Marketing at SalesHacker Many forward-thinking startups have found a certain job function to be critical to their growth: product marketing. What is it? It’s how developers know what features to add or remove in the next versions of their product. It’s how marketers know how to best position, message, and price their product. It’s how sales teams are enabled to close more deals by better understanding their product and how to sell it. For early-stage founders, there’s a lot in common (and a lot to learn) from product marketers. With a well-crafted product marketing strategy, early-stage startups can create products that are delightful for their users, drive more conversions, and keep existing customers from churning. Join us as we sit down with product marketers and founders to discuss - Creating a product marketing strategy - Collaborating between sales, development, and marketing teams - Testing prototypes and MVPs - Messaging & positioning strategies for your product - Collecting feedback and iterating - Managing and hiring product marketers ABOUT THE PANELISTS Hudson Gaines-Ross, Co-founder of Plant People - Hudson is an NYC-based serial entrepreneur who has started multiple brands in the CPG and ecommerce industries.

  • Building a Cannabis Startup

    New York

    PLEASE PURCHASE A TICKET THROUGH EVENTBRITE: https://bit.ly/2H5txEf 2018 was a landmark year for the cannabis industry: California, Vermont, Oklahoma, Canada, and Mexico all deregulated marijuana, making it more widely accessible. With deregulation, entrepreneurs and investors have made the cannabis space a hotbed of innovation, attracting the attention of press, lawmakers, investors, and consumers. Global funding to cannabis companies reached nearly $2.2B (a new record high for this emerging industry). On June 26th, 4 of these frontier entrepreneurs will join us to discuss what inspired them, how they determined the right business model and how they've grown their business thus far. We'll also hear about the unique challenges of the space, from legal and regulatory complexities to the residual stigma of cannabis. We’ll also discuss - Designing & prototyping your product - Marketing for cannabis products - Adhering to rules & regulations - Fundraising options for a cannabis startup About the panelists - Ryan Smith is the Co-founder & CEO of LeafLink, the cannabis industry’s standard platform for orders, sales and relationship management. LeafLink has $14 million in venture capital from investors including Lerer Hippeau and Nosara Capital. The platform went live in Colorado in March 2016 and now has more than 2900 retailers placing orders for over 950 brands across 19 territories. In 2016, Ryan was the first CEO of a cannabis-facing company to be listed on Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list. In February 2018, LeafLink was the first company in the cannabis space to make Fast Company’s 2018 list of Top 10 Most Innovative Companies in Enterprise. Prior to co-founding LeafLink, Ryan successfully founded and exited two companies, one of which he sold to an NYSE public firm. - Benjamin Witte is the Founder & CEO of Recess, a consumer wellness company creating CBD infused functional beverages and nutraceutical products to help people feel balanced in an increasingly stressful world. While working at Life Capital, Witte began to experiment with CBD, as he has always been hyper, wired and overwhelmed with the stresses of everyday life. CBD (oil) helped Witte feel more balanced, creative, happier and productive - but he had a problem with the delivery method...placing the product under the tongue simply wasn’t the most delightful experience. - Beryl Solomon is the Founder & CEO of Poplar, a platform that offers curated CBD products with expert insights on how they work, what they do, and ultimately, how it will benefit specific health and wellness needs. Prior to founding Poplar, Beryl served as the CEO of STATE bags.
