Alex Gabbi, Founding Partner, Global Innovation Village – and former Arrow Electronics GM – will share his insight on whether startups present tremendous sales opportunities – or huge time sinks with little to no returns. Alex will make the case for crafting a structured approach to mining startups and, as a result, increase the selling ROI. Learn the different roles that incubators, accelerators, angel investors and venture capitalists play in the startup community. Over the course of his 20+ year career, Alex has planned, funded, and successfully launched five start-ups in the consulting, enterprise software, hardware and consumer product spaces.
