Keynote and Moderator:
David Skok, General Partner, Matrix Partners
sales and marketing community is launching a year of programming on
what it takes to go to market successfully. The first of our events
focuses on the planning and strategy of launching your product or
solution and how you get buy-in (and marketing funds!) from your boss –
whether that be your CFO, CMO, or your board of directors.
David Skok, General Partner at Matrix Partners, renowned entrepreneur, and author of the popular blog www.forEntrepreneurs.com will keynote the event and share what he has learned from launching and scaling companies and working with the "best of the best” in the software industry to help increase success. David will also cover his methodology for designing and optimizing customer acquisition funnels.
Joining David will be speakers representing a range of organization sizes and lifecycle. You will hear from a recently-funded venture, a growing venture that has achieved scale, and a "venture-minded” division operating within a public software company. The group will share their approach for devising go-to-market strategies – both what’s worked and not worked for them – and how thinking like a VC can stretch your marketing dollar.\
