What’s the number one reason most startups go out of business? Failure to develop a sufficient customer acquisition strategy. Strategic partnerships, along with paid customer acquisition and internal marketing efforts are the keys to creating a pipeline of new customers for every startup.

Hear from the decision makers what kinds of deals are attractive to powerful brands like Bravo, Food Network, and NBC News. In the Partnership Series, we’ll explore how to make strategic partnerships work with startups and established companies. By attending, you’ll get the inside scoop and what you need to know before approaching their company to pitch your partnership idea.

Our goal is to create a space where established companies and startups can come together and learn how to work with each other. Each session includes a 30 minute question and answer session with the audience.
