Why are corporate partnerships so damn hard?
Maybe it's just me, but for the longest time corporate partnerships seemed like a total crap shoot. Getting someone on the phone was hard enough let alone getting a face to face meeting.
It felt like the most ass-backwards process ever.
Hundreds of cold-calls, awkward networking events, emails, memo's, direct mail and everything else, I tried it all and spent a long time failing before I finally mastered the process.
But 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.
Join me with special guest Scott Pollack, Senior Manager of Business Development at American Express, as we show you what it takes to create valuable partnerships with the giants of the business world.
Please note that to attend this class, YOU MUST REGISTER FOR THE WEBINAR.
And please share it with your friends! The mission is to bring innovation to the world as fast as possible and partnerships are a key way to bring your ideas to life.
We want to help as many people as possible, but do realize that space is limited. After 1000, you'll be locked out.
p.s. At the end of the webinar, we are going to tell you how to get invited to a high-profile event we're throwing with some VP's in the corporate space (for free)!. You can read more about the event here.
It's our first National class! This is going to be a free WEBINAR, so regardless of where you're located you can listen in. We are also going to have Mr. Scott Pollack from Biz Dev at American Express as a guest panelist. And we are also going to share how you can be invited to attend a high profile event with top start ups and VP in New York for free.
