Reyndert C.

Startup Business Developer and Internet Marketer

Netherlands - Tests: 4

Dear Reader, My focus is on delivering results. I'm a startup business developer that has plenty of first hand experience with all challenges of startups in early and later stages of development. These are challenges I have faced and overcome: 1. Developing elevator pitches and pitchdecks (I have won a €35k price in a TV-pitching competition) 2. Developing a Minimum Viable Product (Software) on a shoestring budget 3. Early Customer Development Interviews (including getting letters-of-intent from potential customers) 4. Raising seed capital (I raised €190.000 or approx. $250,000 in seed-capital in Europe) including business planning, 5. Product and IT-management (I have managed an on-site team of 4 developers); Agile (Scrum); Design Thinking. 6. Sales (Enterprise B2B): lead generation through smart drip campaigns, social & solution selling, selling to executives in Finance (CFOs) and HR of medium and large size companies (revenue: €100M+). 7. Online marketing: website development (wordpress), SEO (content marketing and SEO optimization), SEA (Google Adwords, Facebook / Linkedin ads), concept development (developing customer persona; identifying a real pain; tailoring value proposition). One of the trickiest challenges I have faced is finding a good product-market fit. Key to overcoming this is identifying the innovators and early adopters in your market-place and develop a relationship with them. These customers will can help you iterate quickly and confirm or refute your value proposition. I'm currently specializing in: Business proposals Business development Bootstrapping & the lean startup Business modelling Businessplanning Preseed, seed and Series A & B funding Conversion Rate Optimization & SEO Growth marketing I'm currently looking for new challenges! If I can help you in one of the areas above, or think I might be a match for a different type of job, don't hesitate to get in touch!
