About this event

Join us as we sit down with the co-founders of GrowthX a silicon valley based accelerator that works with startups, companies and countries to commercialize innovation. 70 percent of funded start-ups fail and eight of the top ten reasons why have nothing to do with technology or products. They have to do with markets and people. GrowthX was launched by co-founders Sean Sheppard and Andrew Goldner, to address this problem by building the world’s first seed-stage venture fund and start-up accelerator program. A program that is focused on developing markets and making money.

We will be asking them to share their insights on how to overcome the barriers of sales, how to develop your market as a startup and how to accelerate your business.
