Event Details

Business Development for Startups

Thursday, July 18th from 6:30 pm - 8:30pm

Ryan Denehy, Co-founder, Swarm


Turbo-charge the growth of your business through partnerships. Learn the best strategies to identify, contact and follow up with decision makers and how to get the deal. Leave the class with your 30-day game plan for business development domination. 


At the end of the class, students will be ready to: 

  • Develop and implement the right business development strategy for your startup
  • Build a pipeline to go after your targets
  • Identify, contact and pitch decision makers
  • Deploy every trick in the book to successfully "go in cold" and come out with a deal
  • Close and implement deals that lead to meaningful growth


No prerequisites required. Just a great attitude and desire to crush it. 


Preparation: Bring the noise.

About the Instructor 

Ryan Denehy started his first digital media company at age 17 producing and distributing action sports films. He sold that company to a startup at age 19, and helped get that company acquired by USA TODAY Sports in 2008. Ryan’s partnerships and M&A activity led USA TODAY Sports to become the 4th largest sports property online. In 2012 he departed with longtime collaborator Rudd Davis to co-found Swarm, a retail analytics and marketing platform. When he’s not working Ryan likes to travel, spend time with great people and listen to house music.
