Silicon Valley training camp - in Copenhagen!

What: Full day event

Who: Entrepreneurs & Investors

When: June 1st, 9:00-18:30

Where: Founders House x Startup Village

(Njalsgade 19, Copenhagen)

How: Be selected (sign up)

Effectively communicating who you are, what you do, why you are solving a problem and for who, is some of the hardest questions entrepreneurs need to answer. It might seem obvious to you, but getting that message across the table effectively, is hard. Clean code or a polished pitch deck doesn’t just sell your vision – or does it?

Our goal is to educate every single Danish entrepreneur to be their best – and we have chosen Silicon Valley’s best practises to do so. Through an action packed day with interactive workshops, we will improve not only your baseline – but elevate your company! This is not our ambition – this is our promise. Tell us your ambition and you can join us.

END OF DAY

Bill Joos

As a principal in “Go To Market Consulting”, based in the heart of Silicon Valley, Bills single professional goal is to help entrepreneurs accelerate their success. Since 1998 he has worked with early-to-mid stage technology entrepreneurs and venture capital firms’ portfolio clients.

Bill spent seven years as the VP of Entrepreneur Development at Garage Technology Ventures, an early-stage venture capital firm that he co-founded along with Guy Kawasaki and Bill Reichert.  While at Garage, he earned a reputation for his expertise in providing portfolio clients with effective, hands-on, action-oriented strategic and tactical mentoring and coaching.

In 2004, Bill founded his own practice and extended his services to global clients.  He has consulted with literally hundreds of individual early-to-mid stage high-technology startups worldwide and successfully helped them polish and clarify their messages and refine their fund-raising and customer presentations.  Beyond being a leading “pitch doctor,” his services also include revenue and pricing strategies, business alliances, business development and marketing.

Thousands of entrepreneurs worldwide have attended conferences or workshops where Bill has been a featured keynote speaker or workshop leader on entrepreneurial topics.

He has also held sales and marketing positions with a variety of companies, including IBM, and served as VP Sales at the software division of Apple Computer.
