How do small start-ups with a brilliant idea turn into big businesses?
The Momentum Summit will explore that question with a series of in-depth conversations with notable local founders and CEOs.
You'll hear Akamai chief executive Paul Sagan share the strategies that transformed a student business plan team into a publicly-traded company with 1,750 employees and more than $850 million in revenues, serving customers like MTV, the NBA, and Netflix. Constant Contact chief executive Gail Goodman will discuss how her company acquires customers at a price that makes sense — and retains them for the long haul. Steven Kaufer, co-founder and CEO of TripAdvisor, will explain how his start-up came back from the brink of extinction and grew into a network of travel sites that now attract 45 million visitors a month. ZipCar CEO Scott Griffith will talk about the tactics that have been most effective to turn his company into the biggest car-sharing network in the world. VistaPrint's chief marketing officer, Trynka Shineman, will explain how her company uses free offers to bring in new customers and ensures that they're profitable at the first transaction. Who's it for? The Momentum Summit is geared to entrepreneurs and CEOs, as well as senior sales, marketing, and business development executives.
