Because after 6 business exits of my own, helping hundreds of companies over the last 20 years, and a lifetime in corporate development, I've lived through it all. In case you were wondering, here’s a brag report on my last client of 2020: • Increased annual B2B revenue targets of $5M in FYE 2020 by generating enterprise contracts ($425,000 in FYE 2019). • Generated partnership discussions with 200+ decision-makers at Microsoft, Amazon, Facebook, Uber, Expedia, Cisco, SAP, Dell, IBM, and other leading IT and Tech companies. • Served as an interim Chief Growth Officer and Growth Consultant, closing B2B contracts with Fortune 500s and creating sustainable pipelines for Sales Teams. • Facilitated 1-on-1 introductions to top VC and PE firms in EdTech, including ReThink Education and Chan Zuckerberg Initiative. NEXT STEPS I am available for remote contract opportunities. My team and I will only take on projects, and clients, when we can 100% knock it out of the park. We do not take on any clients unless we believe there is an opportunity for breakout success. Visit my LI Profile: /coreysingletonconsulting/ -Corey
