Startups with a direct sales model have to evolve from founders doing all the sales to managing a sales function. Since revenue generation is on the line, the stakes are high and the punishment for mistakes are even higher. A high-performing sales function can be the difference maker for successful future rounds of funding.
This supplement to the quarterly Founders Academy boot camp focuses on establishing and effectively managing the sales function for an early stage company. The topics covered include the following:
-Sales Orgs & Territories
-Managing the Sales Team
-Sales Quotas & Compensation
-Intro to Enterprise Sales

What are Startup Founder’s Saying About Founders Academy?
“Founders Academy is a must! Gordon unlocked new value in concepts I thought I was already familiar with.”
“I’d recommend Founders Academy to other startup founders because of critical early alarms about easy to overlook things.”
“I wish we had done this a year ago.”
“I could not have been more pleased with how clearly Gordon explained things.”
“The way you convey the material is great and the examples you give makes things clear.”
“Fantastic. The camp really provides a complete view of the components necessary to build your business. The additional personal stories you interjected really validate your message.”
“I didn’t know anything about starting a company before joining Capitol Factory, and this workshop has probably taught me the most.”
“If you are thinking about becoming a founder this is an up close and personal intro from the trenches. If you’ve been around the block a few times, you’ll still learn something. A founder can’t hear this stuff enough.”
“I wish I could have done this years ago because my first venture with VC’s did not go well. You don’t know what you don’t know and the startup landscape is hard to navigate.”
