The competitive advantage of top revenue generating talent.

Since the start of 2009, $8 billion have poured into 1205 transactions involving NY-based startups. As both the quantity and quality of technology companies have grown, the war on talent has drastically increased. 

The competition for sales talent has been fierce as new funding often catalyzes hiring of revenue generators. As a sales team grows larger, retaining top performers becomes a challenge as reps get bombarded with new opportunities.

Our panelists have extensive experience at high growth startups, hiring and retaining top performers. Our discussion will focus on best practices Founders, VP of Sales, and HR leaders should consider when building a sales team.
