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.
