"Entrepreneurs and technical founders face a host of marketing challenges when they are building their companies, from targeting the right customers to sending the right message to the market, as well as overcoming other barriers to adoption. The best technology doesn't always win and well-orchestrated marketing can make the difference for a company working to build momentum and traction within their industries," stated Michael Binko, president | CEO of kloudtrack and Co-Chair of Startup Maryland. "Scott's experience helping entrepreneurs simplify how they communicate about their company or technology will help startups build a strong foundation for growth and leave them with valuable insights they can put to use immediately."
