Gaining early sales traction in market segments with long project cycle-times, a risk-averse culture, well-established incumbent vendors and inflexible procurement policies is hard at the best of times. The O&G industry is a prime example of this type of market segment as upstream, mid-stream and downstream all exhibit these characteristics. So what better guide than exploring how a Houston start-up achieved sales breakthroughs and continuous growth over many years?
This 60-90 minute presentation/Q&A session will cover the key elements of their success, both before and after their go-to-market launch, and focus on how IT can initiate disruption to the benefit of new entrants. The session will appeal to any entrepreneur targeting a large but conservative market.
