Limited Capacity seats available

Your startup is built to fail if you can’t find your people. Today great brands (and products) are built around community. Startups thrive when they generate enthusiasm AND connection. You want rabid fans. Find them, and you’ll know you’ve struck gold in your brand, product and message.

Rabid Fan: A person who is in love with (and has a healthy obsession with) a product or company. Supports it in ways that go beyond shopping & inspire curiosity in others. A real personal and emotional connection to a brand.

The benefits are many: brand loyalty, faster organic growth, lower attrition of customers, and higher profits — just to name a few. Course, lots of startups struggle to find their voice and connect with their people. Many never do.

We want to hear from leaders who’s companies have nailed it and those who are in the trenches right now.

That’s why we’re bringing together a powerhouse speaker set with 5 leaders at amazing companies from across the spectrum of startups. They’ll each have 7 minutes share a their story and juicy insights on what they’ve learned when nurturing a culture and brand that sparks crazy-loyal customers.
