We all know that the secret to generating long-term revenue growth relies on your ability to deliver outstanding customer value.

But how to do you create a growth strategy that consistently improves customer experience and converts leads into evangelists?

Join us for an informal candid discussion where we'll uncover how successful startup founders and leaders employ a customer-centric mindset to power and scale their revenue growth.

This event is hosted by RevDev, a collective of startup growth advisors, as part of their Portland company launch and kick-off. The RevDev founders will walk us through their take on Success Marketing - a strategy that integrates Marketing, Sales, and Customer Success to deliver bigtime customer value and generate sustainable revenue growth.

RevDev will then be joined by three leaders of thriving Portland startups for a panel discussion about how customer-centricity can supercharge your growth strategy. Hear first hand the challenges they've faced, their lessons learned, and their secrets for growing revenue and customer loyalty. The topics will be selected from audience suggestions beforehand, and you'll walk away with actionable, field-tested, bottom-line-driving growth strategies and tactics in the disciplines that actually matter.

Join us and tell us what matters most to you, your team, and your business so that we can help you kick ass in 2018! Agenda: 5:30 - Mingling, networking, food and drinks!
