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.
I’m a firecracker obsessed with growth. A curious impresario who believes that authenticity and entrepreneurship will change the global landscape we live in for the better. Above and beyond anything else, I think that life is an adventure, one that I’m ready to rock until the end.
In the past, I helped launch The Domino Project with Seth Godin and created partnerships with major brands like AMEX, Experian, GE and Ashley Sleep. It was in that role that I raised hundreds of thousands of dollars in sponsorships and donations for the Acumen Fund, NYT best selling authors Malaria No More. We also facilitated the free distribution of over 100,000 best-selling books.
Later, as VP of Partnerships at Squidoo, the 60th largest website in the USA, I created partnerships with Fortune 500 brands to teach them how to use content + sponsorships as effective marketing tools.
I’ve been seen as a speaker at TEDxTraverseCity, TEDxAsylumHill, Fast Company, Mashable, End Malaria and others.
These days, I'm a cultural entrepreneur, blogger, talk-show host, speaker and all-around partnership, sales and branding expert.
I've been seen in Fast Company, Mashable, and Forbes. A noted writer and speaker, I was published in the bestselling book End Malaria alongside thought leaders Sir Ken Robinson, Gary Vaynerchuk, Pam Slim and Derek Sivers.
I swear by boldness, vision and action and currently split my time between New York City and Rome, Italy.Tweet me @heylaurynbee!
