Startup Sales is Hard

Make it Easier with Experienced Founders

Hitting investor sales milestones is a challenge. Finding the right clients, the right pitch, and the right process requires iterations. Entrepreneurs typically struggle in three main stages:

Finding initial clients to join a beta or proof of concept for the product

Building an initial sales process that the first sales people can follow

Growing sales after a fundraising round to keep investors happy

How We Help

1. Sales Process Audit

2. Sales Coach and Training

3. Fractional Sales Executive

The most common reason sales teams fail is due to lack of repeatable process.

We help your team review your existing sales process and setup an optimal sales process including defining roles, picking tools, and reviewing copy.

Founders are often the best people to sell in the early stages. However, not all founders are born salespeople.

We work with founders and early sales teams to develop the right processes and habits. We will even join sales calls to provide feedback. 

Finding and hiring sales talent is often difficult an expensive. The best sales people already have jobs or want huge base salaries.

We help startups as fractional sales executives in the early stages by providing sales talent on a part-time basis.
