The second official MemSQL Meetup takes place next Tuesday, July 28th at 6pm! This time, we will focus on the art and science of building a successful sales team through hypergrowth. Come join us for pizza and libations, as well as an opportunity to glean insights about scaling a sales team at a startup.
Our featured guest next week is Jim Herbold, the first sales hire at Box and former Executive Vice President of Global Sales. Leveraging homegrown strategies, Jim grew the Box sales team to 400 people and took revenue from $1 million to $174 million. Jim will share go-to-market strategies, the importance of self-disruption, and sales-driven processes that are key to sales success during hypergrowth. We are thrilled to have Jim join us for a valuable learning experience.
