Last week I stopped by Blue Startups for a talk story session with their latest cohort . I ran into Jared Kushi earlier in the week and he asked me to stop by the office. Having graduating the 500 Startups accelerator only a handful of months prior, I didn't feel especially qualified to speak to members of another accelerator. My job as Founder CEO however, is to gladly accept such opportunities. So I showed up early and went to work. Paubox is on network time.
I was asked to talk about:
- B2B Sales.
I admittedly went off course and also discussed:
- "Behind the Cloud: The Untold Story of How Salesforce.com Went from Idea to Billion-Dollar Company-and Revolutionized an Industry" by Marc Benioff.
- "From Impossible to Inevitable" by Jason Lemkin and Aaron Ross.
- Creative ways to pump up your team.
- The true purpose of Social Mixers.
- Our homies at Clearscope.
- Leveraging Growbots to build out Outbound sales.
- The power of annual billing for a SaaS startup.
I am thankful to have been given the opportunity to talk story at Blue Startups!
