Authentic Brand was back for our third year as an event host at Twin Cities Startup Week – with an action packed panel of local business leaders talking about our favorite mash-up concept: Smarketing!
Our CEO, Jennifer Zick, organized and moderated the event, titled: Smart Smarketing: Aligning Marketing and Sales to Build Healthy Revenue at Every Stage of Growth. The panelists brought a fantastic blend of marketing and sales perspectives, and represented a wide range of business models, from early-stage / start-up to well-established large enterprise.
A brilliant recap of the conversation
