How to Get Started on Your Venture

February 21 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Have an idea for a venture, but not sure where to start? Phil Green, senior advisor for B2B and technology, will provide an easy six-step guide to getting your venture off the ground. Explore refining your idea, initial customer discovery, building an MVP, interviewing basics, and more!

ABOUT THE PRESENTER

As senior advisor, B2B and technology, Phil Green’s mentoring is focused on B2B, as well as teams where engineering/product development choices are critical to the venture. Phil brings 30 years of experience in building products, services, teams, and companies. As a former CTO, he has built web-based enterprise applications, as well as consumer mobile apps for iOS and Android. As a former CEO, he built a customer base of 5,000 organizations, in 50 countries, serving over one million users. This B2B venture used a direct sales channel to penetrate F1000 accounts such as Bank of America, NASA, Owens Corning, Pfizer, and Kraft Foods, and used an indirect partner channel to penetrate international markets as well as small to midsize U.S. businesses. As a COO, he has improved operations and profitability, and has led the company’s push to establish an inbound marketing strategy focused on generating B2B leads. Phil has experience in conversational AI, search, database systems, agile development, no-code product development solutions, such as Bubble & Glide, and has worked at venture-backed startups, self-funded startups, and publically traded companies. Phil can also advise on how to approach angel investors, and he is a Boston Techstars alumnus. Phil holds an MBA from HBS and graduated from Harvard College with an AB in economics.
