Finding the right growth strategy for your startup is quite a challenge. After launching a product, most startups struggle with identifying and implementing the most effective growth strategies and in understanding how to acquire and retain customers in order to scale their business.

Join us on Thursday, February 8th from 5:30PM-7:30PM for a fireside chat with District 3 alumni entrepreneurs, Saad Sami Malick, co-founder and CEO of Capbeast, Kevin Ferah co-founder and COO at BEEM, and Adrien Sicard, co-founder and CEO of Beeye.

You’ll get to learn the tools and skills needed to grow your startup and hear the stories and the successful strategies implemented by fellow entrepreneurs who have reached different milestones along their sales journey. This will also be a great opportunity to learn more about District 3’s services to help you build a scalable, repeatable and sustainable business.
