How to Sell Technology to Corporates

An intensive one-day workshop for startups

Selling to large businesses is already challenging: selling technology adds an additional layer of complexity.

B2B technology startups need to deal with a range of stakeholders, address perceived risk, and be ready to address incumbents and competitors.

In this one-day intensive workshop we share strategies, resources, and tips for finding, engaging and selling B2B technology to corporate decision makers. 

Topics covered :
- Mapping out your sales process
- Finding and engaging corporate decision makers
- How to handle incumbents and competition
- Demonstrating value to decision makers
- Product demos
- Forecasting and sales numbers
- Addressing risk concerns
- Proof of concepts and trials
- RFIs and RFPs
- Selling to committees
- Talking implementation plans and goals

Coffee, tea, snacks and working lunch provided.

Millennials & Banks – What Does the Future Hold?

Come attend the first-ever Finimize event in the US, led by Finimizer Marija Gavrilov. Let’s get real and talk about the future of banks through dialogue with Millennials and banking executives!

Millennials are the largest generation in US history, and are expected to make 40 percent of the workforce by 2022. Being the first "digitally-native" generation, they’ve challenged businesses to win them over in this new age. Banks are having a harder time than most. The American Banking Association reports that 71 percent of Millennials would rather go to the dentist than listen to what banks are saying. What do bank executives think about this? What do Millennials have to tell them? We'll explore how the two see a collaborative future ahead.

Cambridge Side Hustlers Meetup: Discover Who ACTUALLY Wants Your Side Product by Running Quick, Cheap Tests

  • CIC Cambridge, 4th floor kitchen (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Are you actively working on a side project and trying to figure out what exactly customers want?

We just had our biggest Meetup yet. 36 people! I talked to a number of inspiring people that had developed a prototype/alpha of their side product, but were a little unsure on what to do next.

Launch the product and begin selling?

Keep building?

Last meetup was all about the overall strategy you can use to find a niche in the market. This one will be mostly tactical- how you can quickly and cheaply determine if you are building the right thing or not.

I will explain the 1-10-100 framework that I use to quickly validate ideas.

Also, we will go over Lean techniques for REAL validation- not just empty feedback or compliments.

This one is for the people that are ready to do the hardest part- sales and marketing! They have gotten beyond the idea phase.

Agenda

Pizza and non-alcoholic drinks will be provided. Donations will be appreciated!

7:00-7:30: Food and Networking

7:30-7:40: Message from the CIC + Intro to group

7:40-8:00: How to determine if there is actually demand for your product. Specific ways to run tests that will get you real answers, not sitting and waiting.

8:00-8:30: Idea Validation Workshop

8:30- Networking

Transportation

The Red Line stop for CIC is Kendall. For those who drive, there is a pay parking lot underneath the building, and limited meter parking in the area.

Please make sure to check in with security when you arrive.

This Meetup organizes people building side hustles in the Boston area. We are going to keep each other accountable for moving our projects forward.

A side project that you are currently building

• Important to know

New Year, New Tech: Planning your Next Tech Project for Skilled Volunteers

Kick off the new year by joining Common Impact and Oracle+NetSuite Social Impact for a workshop to plan your next technology project using skills-based volunteers.

Through this interactive session, you will learn how to create a strategic blueprint to scale a current technology system using Oracle+NetSuite Social Impact's core methodology. Next, you will take a deeper dive into that system to narrow down your identified challenges into potential skills-based projects and determine the deliverables where volunteers should focus their efforts using Common Impact's project scoping process.

 

Who Should Attend?

Nonprofit executives and technology staff familiar with your organization's strategic goals, and interested in addressing how to use technology to achieve those goals.

Note: As the session will be discussion oriented, attendees should come with 1-2 ideas of technology projects you are hoping to tackle this year with skilled volunteers.

 

What You'll Walk Away With:

  • A blueprint for scaling technology systems using skilled volunteers, based on Oracle+NetSuite's Social Impact methodology
  • A planned out technology project for skilled volunteers that aligns with your organization's strategic goals using Common Impact's project scoping template
  • How to most effectively engage skills-based volunteers to enhance your staff's knowledge of and exposure to technology to create sustainable solutions for your organization

Community Table is for eaters, entrepreneurs, and students of food to connect and exchange ideas. A model created by Babson's Food Sol, the design is always one table and one conversation, with the collective driving the content. People have reported finding partners, expanding networks, and reaching retail all as direct results of attending Community Table. We hope you'll join the conversation to network, discuss, connect and learn from others doing awesome work in the city! 

Feel free to bring your business cards, your lunch, and/or food to share with the group! Community Table is all about FOOD so we encourage attendees to bring samples of their products and consider this event an opportunity to showcase your newest recipes and flavors.

We'll see you there!
