Speaker: Mike Mathieu, All Star Directories

In today’s capital-constrained environment, scaling your business requires a capital-efficient strategy. But it also requires placing smart bets with your hard, cold cash to unleash profitable growth. One paradoxically smart investment for growth companies can be hiring highly skilled, seemingly “expensive” outside consultants to patch holes in your organization, so you can focus on the core strengths that drive profitable growth. Our keynote for this topic is Mike Mathieu, founder and former CEO of All Star Directories and current chairman of Front Seat, a civic software company. In addition to his personal and professional success, Mike was a highly-rated speaker at Entrepreneur University, and we’re thrilled to have him! In a conversational format, he’ll talk about how he successfully leveraged such relationships to bootstrap All Star Directories following the dotcom bubble and how you can apply the same lessons in the current environment.

With this breakfast, we’re also piloting an innovative “Partner Fair” during the caffeinated networking session before the program (6:30-7:30) and after (9-10am), where you’ll have a chance to meet senior partners in Marketing, Legal, and HR to discuss whether an outsourced solution might be appropriate for your situation. Hope you can join us!
