Presenting companies more prepped, positioned and prepared for what lies ahead
By Michelline Dufort, Director of Business Relations
By all accounts, our February 11 Entrepreneur Forum (#EF15 if you’re following along on social media) had a vibe that had all attendees – including our youngest-ever EF attendee Connor at age seven – excited about starting and growing businesses in New Hampshire.
Our most recent presenters were Rick Ouellette of SalesGoose and Bill Mouyos AMI Research & Development, which you can read more about in the coverage from The New Hampshire Union Leader. Both walked away with sage advice from a panel of experts who spent time learning about their business plans and needs.
What did they learn?
Bill Mouyos of AMI R&D reports: “It was a valuable forum to gain exposure. I had several takeaways, most of all that the technology AMI presented was relevant and potentially disruptive; AMI needs to refine our business plan for the antenna technology to bring to market; and we need to have more business development to complement our technologies.”
As for SalesGoose, CEO Rick Ouellette stated, that three bits of advice resonated, SalesGoose should (1) develop focused user-type value statements, (2) make RFTs flexible to meet varying buyer interests, and (3) leverage university relations to offload start-up workload.
If you think your company could use an infusion of tailored expert advice as it makes its way through the lifecycle, and you’d like to also benefit from visibility and networking, keep an out for an announcement in March, which is when the Council’s EF Presenter Committee will begin accepting applications for the next EF on May 20.
