VA Chat: Partnering with Big Brands like JetBlue & Dunkies, Snow Day Tips & $4M in Funding

VA Chat: Partnering with Big Brands like JetBlue & Dunkies, Snow Day Tips & $4M in Funding

Couple quick notes to kick of today’s snow day edition.

Chat of the Day
Thanks to everyone who sent messages about our recent fundraise yesterday –  we’re excited for the next chapter of VentureApp. If you missed it, check out the announcement in TechCrunch or our blog post about it.

On to today’s chat. In the early stages of a startup most folks just focus on product and marketing and tend to neglect sales. However, sales is the most critical aspect of any business. It’s also constantly changing and one of the hardest things to get right.

Mavrck is the perfect example of a startup that has focused on sales since day one and has been up and to the right ever since. Most impressively, the company has landed major deals with Dunkies, Gillette, Jet Blue, P&G, Hershey’s and more. For a young startup in Boston, that is incredible.

Personally, I’m excited to chat 1:1 with Chris today. I’ve seen him speak at events and when it comes to sales tactics, he can provide some great advice. If you’re looking to scale sales, create partnerships with major brands, or just network with a fast growing startup, make sure to chat Chris at 2pm today.
