The Capital Network – Signing Your First Investor: Seed Financing & Navigating Convertible Debt

Email Strategy, Design and User Experience: Keys to Success
Description: Email has a bad rap: it’s been declared dead, called spam, and been sidelined by marketers and creatives alike. But email is one of the highest performing digital marketing channels, requiring its own unique set of content, marketing, and design considerations. In this session, you’ll learn how using performance-driven email design can drive email strategy, best practices and principles for getting users to take action, and simple strategies and A/B tests to maximize conversions.

Boston Front End Developers Meetup – Front End Town Hall a.k.a Ask the Hive Mind
Description: We’re going to (again) do something a little different this time – In informal discussions before and after, I’m always amazed at the variety and depth of knowledge present in the room at each meetup.

Harvard iLab: Startup Positioning- How To Tell Your Story
Description: Join recovering NY ad man, 6X startup veteran, and current Actifio CMO Mike Troiano for a structured, 2-hour, workshop-based event designed to shorten the distance between “What?” and “Wow!” Everyone will learn the fundamentals of startup positioning and get a chance to refine their story in a workgroup setting. Most will walk away with a dramatically more effective way of telling their own story than they have today. And some will end up with a sentence or two that just changes everything.
