I am a leading brand marketer and corporate innovation expert who has helped lead the biggest companies and brands in the world - Anheuser-Busch InBev, MillerCoors, Kraft Foods, Mondelez International, Kellogg, and P&G. I am also part of the founding corporate innovation community in Silicon Valley, helping to shape how large corporations create transformative innovative cultures in-house and work effectively with the entrepreneurial community.
As the Director of Digital Strategy & Innovation for Anheuser-Busch InBev, the world's third largest consumer goods company, I look for the best startups to sign lucrative partnership deals with and ultimately help scale and grow. My team and I have helped skyrocket startup success through tens of millions of dollars in partnership deals, and now I want to share with YOU the secrets of what makes a client sign you, so that your startup can be put on the map and backed by the credibility of Fortune 500 clientele.
Unlike incubator resources, VCs, or advisors who coach you from the side, I'm your exact target big brand client who makes the ultimate decision of whether or not to give you the deal. From me, learn all the factors that goes on behind the scenes at a huge company so that you can sell your product, pitch, and positioning in exactly the way that will make them say yes.
