Tech Cocktail's Boston Startup Showcase + Sessions: Grassroots Marketing
Monday, November 26, 2012 from 5:30 PM to 9:00 PM (EST)
Boston, United States
Hey Boston, the Mixer parade is coming your way! We'll be kicking off the event with inspiring Sessions talks followed by the traditional demo style Startup Showcase; served over cocktails, of course.
Sessions, Tech Cocktail's new speaker series, brings the experiences of successful entrepreneurs to you so you can learn valuable lessons for your startup. Hear their stories in their own words and ask them your questions in an intimate setting.
Our speakers will share their Grassroots Marketing stories and experiences of how they launched their products and got people using them - without a large budget. Promotions and marketing may sound easy, but finding your audience and turning them into loyal users can be a huge challenge to any young startup.
