We believe that entrepreneurship is going to solve the world's most pressing problems.
We believe that partnerships with major corporations are one way to bring your ideas to the world at lightening speed and reach millions.
But we also realize that this process is ridden with land mines and isn't created to favor innovation.
It doesn't have to be that way.
Having spent almost 2 years in the trenches learning the art of creating partnerships with brands like Google, GE, and Kraft and having taught 100's of the best start-ups in NYC and San Fran, I've learned what's holding start-ups like you, like us, back.
One, you don't know corporate jargon or what VP's find super valuable. You may think that what they view as important is pointless, but to them it's everything.
VP's often complain that start-ups don't know how to convey value and tend to speak in some weird code language that they really don't understand. This is a huge deal killer.
Two, you lack access to key decision makers and the access you do have (e.g. conferences), is grossly overpriced in comparison to the actual vaue you get.
You pay $2,000 and everyone walks around with business cards acting superficially intelligent.
If and when you meet a VP it feels awkward and forced most times.
"I only have 15 seconds to talk so I better make it good..."
So I'm here to change that.
To bridge the gap between start-up and corporate.
Get you access and get your burning questions answered from people at the top.
I'm here to help bring innovation to the market as fast as possible and grow your infuence because I believe that you can change the world and I want to help you do it.
So on June 14, 2012 we are hosting a one of a kind, invite only, event in New York City where top level VP's from some of the largest brands in the world will be hanging out with the most innovative start-ups (you) for some straight-talk.
If you're curious about how to make these partnerships happen in your own business and want to hear it direclty from the people you'll work with, please apply today!
