fnMentoring, Founders Network

Patrick Ewers, Principal at Mindmavin

Title: How to drive the success of your company by mastering the skill of network relationship management.

If you are leading a start-up some of your success is often simply luck. Many of Silicon valley’s entrepreneurial celebrities have been quoted that much of their success had been being at the right time at the right place. Moreover they say it’s been who they knew and what these people did for them that influenced the success most. In other words “Serendipity was on their side”.

This mentoring session, featuring Patrick Ewers of Mindmavin, will focus on what you can do to make serendipity happen for you. It’s a session geared for those that have realized that managing their professional network allows them to positively influence the success of their company.

It’s simple —- by making people in your network able to think of you at the time they come across an opportunity relevant to your start-up you will get exposed to more of them. The more good things happen to your firm the more success you will have. So be it the introduction to the Top Tier VC, a referral to a rockstar lead engineer, or gaining access to senior corporate development folks that are looking to buy a company just like yours, access to these kinds of opportunities allow you to grow the value of your business.

This session will focus on how to achieve exactly this by learning what you can do to stay-top-of-mind with people that matter most to you
