Go To Market Strategy w/ John Rizzo #2: The Role of Products & Operations in GTM

GET TICKETS HERE: https://asv-gtm-2.eventbrite.com/?aff=meetup RSVPING on MEETUP ALONE WILL **NOT** SAVE YOUR SPOT. Dinner and refreshments are provided. Space is extremely limited. RSVP early to save your spot. OVERVIEW This three part series will take a holistic view of technology startups, focusing on the role of the CEO and founding entrepreneur in the go-to-market process, including mechanisms to measure outcomes and how they relate to funding and capitalization. John will examine each of the disciplines in the GTM process: sales, marketing, marketing operations, content marketing, demand generation, social marketing, marketing automation, and leadership skills. The technology startup landscape is littered with the remains of incredibly promising, put-a-dent-in-the-universe technologies. These businesses often fail due to self-inflicted errors in go-to-market (GTM) strategies and tactics. The art and science of the sales and marketing discipline at best is largely foreign to technology entrepreneurs, and at worst, feels like a waste of time for those who view the world primarily through an analytical lens. Topic: How best to define & develop products and their successful delivery in a more holistic GTM view. Given a wide aperture view of GTM, how best should products be developed and what are the key responsibilities of each team and at each stage of company growth? CURRICULUM - The workshop will address the following: - Definition and role of product management - Definition and role of product development - Definition and role of operations - Measuring and holding product management to account for their role in the GTM model - Measuring and holding product development to account for their role in the GTM model - - Choosing the right development model Budgeting product development in the overall GTM cycle. ------------------------------------------------------------------- AGENDA 6:00 PM - 6:30 PM - networking, food and refreshments 6:30 PM - 6:45 PM - speaker and sponsor introductions 6:45 PM - 8:30 PM - startup workshop and Q & A ***************************************************************************** DEMO/ SPONSOR TABLES Reserve a demo or sponsor table and get great exposure!
