According to Harvard Business School, 75% of VC-backed start-ups fail. Of those who do survive, 70% will end up being sold at little or no profit to the founders. It’s a highly competitive market with low chance of success. However, for firms targeting the enterprise market, there is a key growth hack which can make a startling difference. Over 90% of firms who have used this approach have gone on to thrive, yet few tech firms know about this hack or how to use it.

At this event we will introduce growth hacking using IT analyst firms like Gartner, Forrester, Aite and Celent within Fintech, and show attendees why this hack works and how to use it as well as how to position for growth through marketing using the 6 step secret to dominating your market.

We will cover:

  • When and why tech firms typical fail
  • Working with IT analysts to gain visibility with enterprise buyers
  • Gartner’s Cool Vendor programme – why small vendors aspire to this
  • The 6 steps to marketing success – no matter what your size
  • Using data to supercharge your marketing
  • The small suppliers guide to structuring your marketing team
