OpenView Partners Offers Advice, Tips for Sales Managers

Expansion stage companies seeking inspiration and ideas for building great companies now have a new resource to help them. Recently OpenView Partners unveiled the OpenView Labs site, a curated content site offering ideas and inspiration for high growth technology companies.

The Labs site features daily articles and videos sharing tips on improving many aspects of expansion stage companies, specifically customer development, whole product development, and company development.

This week the OpenView Labs website focuses on optimizing sales and sales processes for expansion stage companies in the site’s featured articles:

The initial Labs web-site authors come from the OpenView team and network. Great ideas from the industry are also included on the website on a daily basis to help share more resources beyond the OpenView Labs website. Over time, OpenView hopes to add expert authors from the community necessary to build great companies and continue to expand the network of contributors and curators.

The target audience for the OpenView Labs site is entrepreneurs and senior managers who are building technology companies, are at the expansion stage of their development, and have aspirations of becoming global leaders in their product markets.

“While every article is aimed at this very specific target audience, we expect readers with companies at other stages of development and in other industry sectors will benefit from the ideas as well,” said Scott Maxwell, Senior Managing Director of OpenView Partners.

If you have an expertise and an interest in contributing to the Labs site directly, please contact Amanda Maksymiw at amaksymiw(at)openviewlabs(dot)com.
