COMMUNITY & EVENTs
When you're struggling with sales, it helps to have people around you that you can ask, "Hey, what did you do about x?". Well, SalesCollider exists for this very purpose. Our events combine intimate group discussions with other founders and presentations by best-in-class mentors who've been there and done that.
The Revenue Roadmap Workshops
(1 to 5-day programs)
For a founding team who wants to start their sales on the right foot, our workshops are the best place to start. We organize the content around building a Revenue Roadmap for your company so that every participant leave with a structured plan to start selling the next day.
During the program, participants take a deep dive into additional key concepts (such as hiring, managing teams and analyzing advanced metrics) with mentors and sales leaders from top Silicon Valley companies.

(2-hour evening events)
Meetups are where it all started for us. In 2014, a group of 20 founders gathered to hear a PM-turned-VC discuss selling the first ad on Twitter and to learn about the hiring process Ryan developed at AdRoll (where he built a 32-person team in 8 months).
Typically, our events include a fireside chat with a prominent VC and a top-tier mentor. The VC discusses what they look for in early-stage companies and the mentor shares what they've learned from their experience in the field.

Conferences & Keynotes
(1-2 hour mini-workshop or sales talk at your event)
Ryan's passion comes through clearly as a conference speaker and workshop facilitator. Seeing these opportunities as a way to have an impact on a broader audience, he takes the content of these talks very seriously.
In 2017 and 2018, Ryan spoke at ten startup accelerators (and counting) in Silicon Valley and eight countries including Singapore, Argentina, Italy and Japan.
