About this event

Join Ascender’s lively virtual Real Talk with Founders: Talking About Traction to connect with proven startup founders and discuss pressing questions entrepreneurs face right now.

Asha Banks, founder & CEO of CheerNotes, and Rachel Reid, founder & CEO of Subtl Beauty, are ready to go for our next Real Talk.

Our chat with these founders who have quickly gained traction for their startups will cover: their definitions of business traction, techniques for highlighting a business’s early-stage achievements, strategies for communicating business traction to different startup stakeholders and investors, and metrics that all founders should have memorized and can quickly share. Plus, so much more on how founders and small business owners can showcase their hard work, wins, and future potential.

They’ll also answer your questions! So, submit your questions when you register, and our featured founders will answer them during the live session facilitated by Ascender’s Executive Director, Nadyli Nuñez.

Securing investments, partnerships, and new customers starts with your ability to demonstrate business traction. Register for this FREE event!
