Happy Fridays people. A bit later than usual (if you ignore the skipped week last week).
I've been getting back into the pitching groove recently. We (Leanconf) have started looking for sponsorship. I bet I could write a whole series of blog posts about pitching for sponsorship and cold emailing.
This week I found Tristan's post very useful and timely. He talks about applying Lean Startup to fundraising.
The debate around Kevin's post "Customer Development interviews are no longer worth the effort" was refreshing.
Also really liked Justin Jackson's new book - Marketing for developers
Grab your beverage of choice, sit back and enjoy this weeks issue.
