NEXT MEETING – Dallas Entrepreneurs Roundtable: Building Teams

No venture is an island. No man or woman can do it all. Angels and VCs won’t invest without a team.

This Roundtable is for all business phases, whether you’re a founder seeking partners or operating business filling key roles.

How do you recruit people?  Where do you find them? What is the right mix of personalities? What incentives can you provide when you can’t pay a competitive or even any salary? In what order should team members be recruited and when? How do you communicate, motivate, and manage team members? If you seek capital, what do funders expect?

Learn and discuss this and more at our Entrepreneur Roundtable!

The Entrepreneur Roundtable is your guide to learning from experts to tune your operations and build a successful business.  It’s an interactive discussion on crucial startup and business topics where we address your issues and answer your questions.

TRIBE ALERT: Online media help

One of our members is developing an online media venture, including an Internet radio service.  We seek help with a business model and technology.  Please reply if you can help or can refer us to someone who can.


TRIBE POWWOW: Lead Generation

A common theme for our members is generating sales, especially in a tough economy. The regular sales pipeline has dried up. Cold calling and old school advertising don’t work. Large scale marketing is too expensive.

The solution is relationship marketing and lead generation to create a sales funnel and generate business. When you have a handle on the process and are ready to take it to the next step, look at shrinking the sales funnel from contact to close. Dissect your lead gen process to determine how you can make it more timely, direct, and personal.  Read more at our blog.

Develop a plan to generate leads and more at the Tribe. Get a Taste of the Tribe, learn more, or apply now.
