Early-Stage BD: Test, Learn, and Scale with Minimum Viable Partnerships

For early stage startups, partnerships can either be a strategic advantage that fuels your go-to-market or they can be time-intensive, expensive distractions. This workshop provides early-stage founders and team members the right tools to manage business development efforts. Founders will walk away with the ability to make quick, well-informed decisions on the who, what, and how behind their business development strategy.
