Class Description


What you'll learn in this business development training:

This class is a primer on business development a startup, particularly one with a consumer product and b2b partnerships. Then learn how to see a deal through, from start to finish. Using real case studies from GroupMe’s deal history featuring partnerships with Balanced Payments, Braintree, lululemon, Nike, ESPN, ZOZI, and Underground Eats this class gives you a macro overview of every step involved in the deal-making process, including sourcing, negotiating, and closing.

Who should take this class? Those students interested in working in a BD function at a technology company, engineers and product managers seeking to understand the other side of their company, and current BD practitioners looking to hone their skills.

  • What exactly business development is and isn't
  • How to best add value to your company's product development cycle and work successfully with your engineering team
  • Basic tactics for sourcing and initiating deal negotiation
  • How to conduct negotiations on legal documents such as term sheets and contracts, with lawyers and on your own
  • The art of closing a deal and the subsequent relationship management
Prerequisites and preparation

Students should be prepared to ask questions about specific deals they’re working on or any other BD-related issues.
