VH Business Development Panel

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!

      Good stuff Joe. If a live stream isn't doable I'm sure folks would love to see a recording posted later. Glad to see VH holding more events!
