Biz developer, Designer, Marketer, Product manager, Sales person
I have lead marketing at over 20 early-stage startups (mostly as the lead of a plug-in marketing team for tech startups and most recently as Director of Marketing for a leading web personalization and customer analytics platform). I can be responsible for leading all forms of business growth including: PR, content marketing, paid advertising, SEO, analytics/optimization, product marketing ("growth hacking"), comarketing, business development, sales, etc. I have also more recently developed a strong enough skill set in UI/UX design for me to call myself a good designer, and am comfortable with leading that effort if necessary on the onset. I have extensive experience in public speaking and sales, so I would be comfortable leading fundraising efforts.
meeting a technical cofounder to build awesome products with. I have have a few ideas designed out, with many customer development interviews already under my belt with good feedback (and pre-sales) for a few of my ideas. Just need a dev parter to help bring these products to life and start hustling with me. I would like to meet prospects through cofounder sites like this, meetup in person and chat a few times to move things forward. Shared interest/passion for the ideas is key. I work at ConnectionsSF coworking space most days in San Francisco.
