Tonight the nextNY group held a business development session named, "The Business Development Discipline: Practitioners’ Roundtable". About 50 people attended the session where a variety of business development topics were discussed. Most of the discussion was around business development for "major" startups and large companies.
The evening’s speakers included:
- Chris Phenner – VP of Business Development, Thumbplay (left side of camera)
- Dan Rosenberg – VP of Business Development, Rave Wireless (right side of camera)
- Matt Milner – VP of Social Media, Hearst Corporation (right side of camera)
I was able to tape the first hour of the discussion and part one (30 minutes) is below. The other half of the discussion will be posted on Tuesday morning.
Earlier this year, the nextNY group held a workshop on hiring for startups. If you plan to do any hiring for your startup, the videos are a must watch.
