About this event

Let's Talk Dollars and Sense.

You're in business to make money -- but it isn't always easy. You may find yourself beating your head against the wall about what that magic formula will be to take you into maximum profit. Well, you'll get those answers and more with a fireside chat with VC and Investor, John Sanders, of

John D. Sanders serves as a strategic business consultant and promoter for emerging growth technology companies. He also has served as a Director and Advisor of several public and private technology corporations ranging in size of annual revenues from $1 million to $70 million.

John has spent nearly his entire life at the forefront of business, technology and investing. In his former years, he built a successful and profitable TechNews company that he sold to a little company you may know as, The Washington Post. He packaged some of his best material into "Parables for Entrepreneurs" which you can download on his website here or listen to it on Apple and Google Podcasts.

John is invested in several businesses locally and around the nation. He also serves several philanthropic efforts through his foundation, the John Sanders Tech Ed Foundation. When it comes to getting money, raising money and convincing people to give it to you, he know what's up.

John will also share with us:

  • why several businesses fail when it comes to the money game
  • what's secret sauce for startups and funding
  • maintaining and growing a profitable business that you may (or may not) want to sell someday.

I guarantee you there's something you can learn from John's decades of career long success that will put more dollars in your pocket.

Don't miss us on February 5, 2020 at the Veterans Association of North County if you'd like to make sure your business is getting top dollar in 2020.
