2/11: C4E Entrepreneurial Sales Short Course Workshop
February 11 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Join the Vanderbilt C4E for a short course workshop on Entrepreneurial Sales, with Andrew Goldner, CEO of GrowthX.
About this event:
Traction speaks louder than words (and pitch decks). In this workshop you will learn the steps that founders need to take when bringing innovation to market and how to identify and avoid the most common failure points in the process.
GrowthX is a venture capital fund run by operators with extensive go-to-market experience. We invest at the seed stage in B2B SaaS and marketplace opportunities founded by diverse teams who recognize the need and want help finding product-market fit. Being helpful is our primary form of due diligence. Our portfolio founders have access to our Market Acceleration Program, our private accelerator focused on everything you need to go to market, engage with your customers, and win revenue. Founders everywhere can apply to join The Revenue Accelerator.
Andrew is a Founding Partner and CEO of GrowthX. He has been in the technology sector since 1998, based in New York City, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Palo Alto. Andrew began his career in technology as a lawyer for the early Internet pioneers in Search (Alta Vista and Yahoo), AdTech (DoubleClick), SaaS (Salesforce), and others while practicing law. He left private practice at Skadden Arps and transitioned to In-House roles at DoubleClick (leading up to the Google acquisition) and Thomson Financial. Andrew then co-founded Thompson’s financial news business leading to the acquisition of Reuters. At Thomson Reuters, Andrew served as Publisher of Reuters News, where he worked on innovation and design-thinking with nearly 3,000 journalists based in 200 countries worldwide. After 6+ years in Asia, Andrew returned to the U.S. and returned to helping early-stage companies.
