For serious, growth-minded SaaS Founders 

Get More Traction in 3 Days Than You Did All of Last Quarter

In just one weekend...
You'll get acquainted with the advanced customer acquisition models, automated marketing funnels, and crucial mindset shifts needed to dramatically accelerate your company's growth... while positioning it to attract world class investors, high-performing team members, and even a lucrative exit.


You’re in a position to get a massive ROI from Idea to Exit Live if:

-- You’re a proud, growth-minded founder of an exciting startup OR quickly growing software company

-- Last quarter’s revenues failed to match those lofty “game-changing” projections you and your team excitedly set on that “epic” Google Hangout

-- No matter what you do, you can’t shake the feeling that everything you’re reading on major tech blogs or bestselling books is lacking the depth and advanced marketing models needed to succeed in today’s SaaS climate (in short, you feel like you’re chasing your tail)

-- You’ve been super interested in implementing strategies that include Facebook ads, webinars, sales team and automated marketing funnels… yet have NO idea how to make it relevant to your product

You know that there’s a massive edge to be gained through acquiring those strategies, and are excited at the prospect of learning from some of the world’s biggest experts who’s actually done it 

-- You believe we’ve only hit the tip of the iceberg as far as how FAST a software company can grow, and are willing to lead the charge as part of a new crop of SaaS companies that help shift the beliefs in what’s possible 

-- You want to make sure that everything you’re doing not only helps you grow your customer base faster, but also positions your company to attract the best investors -- or even a big exit

Here’s How We’ll Get You There:

Over the 3-day seminar, you’ll learn the exact same strategies I’ve used to build two venture backed companies, taking them from idea to exit.

This is the full-spectrum startup  advice I share in the private boardrooms of companies I’ve invested in.

You’ll pack your notebook full of insights covering topics such as: 

-- Founder mindset

-- Product strategy

-- Team building

-- Growth engine design

-- Fundraising and exit strategies

I’ll also be revealing a full stack of new strategies that I’ve yet to teach publicly:

-- The User Experience Maps that matter MOST in accelerating your startup's growth

-- The 5 channels that shape your marketing (& the 3 most likely to be holding you back)

-- Content Triangle framework to high converting online marketing

-- 8 proven ways to dramatically increase ANY customer's lifetime value

-- NEW structures that have saved teams 20% of their time

-- Webinar conversion framework for huge customer growth

-- Question Logic strategy for reducing customer acquisition cost 

-- 3 things I did to double my startup's fundraising results

-- 10 slides every investor wants to see before pulling out their chequebook

-- 3 Phase Fundraising Framework

Plus all new insights in automated marketing funnels and sales teams.

Life Long Connections:

One of my core beliefs is that having people around you who are a few steps ahead of you who support you and believe in you more than you believe in yourself… WILL dictate your success in business.

That’s why I’ve curated a group of entrepreneurs who are giving, open to share and have valuable background and experience to support everyone in the room.

We’ll also be helping coordinate group activities so you get the most time connecting with each other outside of the workshop itself.

Is there a guarantee?

The only thing we guarantee is a mindset change about building and scaling a software startup and meeting incredible entrepreneurs.

What will I learn?

The A-Z of starting, growing and ultimately exiting an exciting software business.  

Is there a dress code?

No way! However, you will feel out of place if you show up wearing beach attire. Most will come dressed in business casual. Dan is a jeans and button shirt kind of guy (with bright shoes), so feel free to follow his lead.

Who is this event for?

On one hand, it’s for serious-growth minded software entrepreneurs.

But on another, it’s for adventurous founders who are ready to ditch the Barnes & Nobles startup section and instead accelerate their company’s growth through the latest and most powerful digital marketing strategies and frameworks.

Will there be any networking at the event?

We strongly suggest that you take advantage of the extended lunch and dinner times provided to connect with the other entrepreneurs and organize Founders Lunches and Founders Dinners. Please note, while we have intentionally created the time in the schedule for the Founders Lunches and Dinners, these are all participant initiated and organized - and at your own expense. Keep in mind that the relationships you will create while breaking bread together will add tremendous value to your ITE experience and could be relationships that last you a lifetime! 

What do I need to bring?

An open mind and desire to take notes throughout the event in a new journal you'll be provided with.
