There’s more to a startup than the founder, there’s the people that actually start it up! Director of Product Marketing, CRO, Sales Engineer, Project Manager, BDR. Behind every founder is a team of operators that you’ve never heard from. Leaders in operations, sales, marketing and customer success, they are the ones working in the trenches every day to build technology that solves problems, align it with the needs of the market, get it into the hands of users and hit the milestones that will achieve scale. In this panel, professionals and first-hires that work inside fast-growing companies in New York will zoom in to offer a look at their day-to-day jobs and how they got them, while going wide to provide an unfiltered look into how early-stage companies are building culture that serves both people and performance from the start.
This is the panel for the execution-obsessed, whether you are exploring a career pivot to early-stage companies, or seeking learnings to help move forward in an existing role. For those considering working at startups, the panel will detail the transition into a startup, and how to harness a background from any field so that you are positioned to become a key contributor to a great team. For those who already work in startups, panelists will offer a look at how to build the processes that set lean teams up for outsized success, and blaze a trail for personal growth in these emerging career paths.
This panel will show that you don’t have to be the founder of a company to write the next great startup story.
This event is a part of #TechWeek - a week of events hosted by VCs and startups to bring together the tech ecosystem.
