Securing Your First Enterprise Customer Meetings

April 29 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

Don't Just Build a Startup, Build a Product


B2B founders typically struggle to win their first customer accounts due to complicated enterprise sales cycles, unclear business models, and limited sales experience. In this workshop, learn how to simplify the early-stage enterprise sales process to secure your first enterprise customer meetings and design successful customer engagements that convert to long-term, high-margin contracts and other customer referrals.

Spots are limited, so please sign up early to secure a spot in this workshop. Those who sign up for the live session will also receive access to the workshop’s recording after the session concludes.

Prior to joining AWS, Nick consulted to CEOs in the maritime, technology, and staffing industries.
