About this event

Carving a unique positioning for your startup is hard. Making it work in the marketplace to get customer acquisition and retention metrics ticking is even harder.

That's why we have invited Chris Foltz, a top global CMO, to speak with the Startup Grind Sweden community and share his experience from three different perspectives: as an MD of Silicon Valley-based global advisory firm Responsible Solutions, as an Entrepreneur in Residence at world's largest pre-seed accelerator Founder Institute, and as an Institute for Real Growth’s ‘IRG100’ top 100 CMOs (2021). 

In this fireside chat, we discuss:

⭐️ How should startups think about go to market?

⭐️ How do you build brand authenticity as a startup?

⭐️ How to tell a story that leaves the audience spellbound?

⭐️ What can startups learn from marketing in large corporations?

⭐️ How can we use ideas from politics and political campaign management in building startup traction?

⭐️ Are entrepreneurs in Nordics too soft in their pitching, marketing, and sales? What are best practices in the Silicon Valley?

⭐️ Audience Q&A and open-mic!

The discussion will be moderated by Naimul Abd, Business Advisor & Partnerships Lead at Coompanion Stockholm, serial impact entrepreneur, Regional Director Nordics at the Founder Institute, and Director Startup Grind Stockholm.
