How Non-Techies Can Launch Successful Tech Startups

As a non-techie, If you want to launch a successful tech startup, your goal shouldn’t be to learn how to code it…your goal is to learn how to build the right team and implement the right processes to execute your idea and bring it to market as fast as possible, so you don’t miss the market opportunity.

Why it’s so hard to find a technical co-founder or CTO and what you should do instead to get your idea off the ground.
Two money saving skills you should have to test ideas without engaging a developer!

This Female Serial Entrepreneur Shares Her Best Tips for Scaling a Business and Achieving Success

There are a lot of people out there with great ideas. But having an idea isn’t enough—you need to find a way to bring it to life. To do this, you need to prototype quickly, know your customer intimately before building the final product and figure out how to best collect feedback so that you can bring something to market that solves a problem for your potential customers.

Take it from serial entrepreneur Shanna Tellerman, it’s not as easy as it sounds. Tellerman is one of very few females to have sat on both sides of the negotiating table in Silicon Valley—serving as a partner for the investing team at Google Ventures before raising more than $70 million for the online interior design company she founded, Modsy.

Tellerman will shed light on how to grow and scale a business right during a free webinar presented by Oracle NetSuite and produced by Entrepreneur. Interviewed by Dynamic Communication: 27 Strategies to Grow, Lead, and Manage Your Business author Jill Schiefelbein, Tellerman will share the story of Modsy and provide a framework for how any company can emulate their path to scalability and success.

Attendees of his webinar will learn:
– How to identify problems that need to be solved for your potential client base
