KTC, Seattle Angel Fund and Clark Nuber Team up for Third Session of Speaker Series

Karr Tuttle Campbell, Seattle Angel Fund, and Clark Nuber PS have teamed up to host the third session of the popular Seattle Angel Fund Speaker Series. For this third session, entitled, “Identifying the Market and Creating a Killer Marketing Plan,” our expert panelists will discuss the importance of finding your business’s niche market, developing a fool-proof marketing plan, and the importance of timing your marketing campaigns for optimal success.

According to CB insights, the number one reason companies fail is due to no market need, and conversely, according to long-time investor, Bill Gross, the number one reason companies succeed is timing. So it is important for the investor to assess whether a venture has correctly assessed the market and whether it is well positioned to capture that market.  In addition, with so many business models, how does one tell which marketing plan is the right one?  Join us on the afternoon of Wednesday, May 24th for a lively discussion on these topics with our panel of experts. Drinks and appetizers will be included.
