Journey to a Million Users: Case Studies on Growth Marketing

Acquiring new users is often a pay-to-play game. Some startups lean nearly entirely on paid advertising to access new markets; many have revitalized old channels (OOH, print) and found ways to take advantage of new mediums (digital) to grow their brands.

Paid advertising is not easy. Marketing experts with working campaigns know they’ll always have to continue testing and optimizing their campaign strategies, all while on the lookout for the next upcoming channel to use.

It can be an expensive and time-consuming ordeal, but for those that make it work, they’ll find repeatable and scalable success.

Join us on August 7th as we host talented practitioners and experts to share case studies and best practices for growth across paid promotions, and more. You’ll learn how to develop growth strategies, set goals, optimize, and more!

StackSummit: Build The Team

Building a strong team is both the most challenging aspect of growing a company and the most important job of a founder. The ability to find, attract and hire the right talent is the key to building a great company.

And as you grow your company from 1 employee to 10, to 30, to 100+, what happens to your startup team? Your culture? How do you manage and lead your growing team? As an early-stage startup with limited resources, how do you hire the right people for your company?

We're prepared to answer these questions and more at StackSummit: Build The Team hosted by Stacklist and Greenhouse.

Together with Greenhouse, we’re providing a full day of panels and lessons that will equip you with the best tips, tactics, and tools to build a startup team. You’ll hear from founders and experts from some of the most successful companies in New York that have grown teams from 1 to 100+.

“Setting up a fashion business is all the more challenging because this is a hyper-competitive industry (who doesn’t want to be a fashion designer these days?) and a very complex one as well. What other kinds of start-up businesses so quickly find themselves with customers and suppliers scattered around the world, requiring so much coordination and organization?” - Imran Amed, Founder & Editor-In-Chief of Business of Fashion

New York is a hotbed for fashion startups and brands - our concrete jungle is home to the largest fashion titans in the world, as well as new brands like Warby Parker, Rent the Runway, Bonobos, and MM.LaFleur.

Fashion entrepreneurs face a unique set of challenges including optimization of their manufacturing and distribution, sourcing materials, staying on top of the latest trends, and standing out in a crowded landscape with a bevy of competitors.

But through the use of new tech, clever marketing, and innovative designs, fashion entrepreneurs have built brands that have improved our lives (and wardrobes).

If you’re building a fashion startup, join us on May 29th as we discuss what it takes to launch and grow a fashion startup with some of NYC’s smartest entrepreneurs. We’ll discuss

  • Designing & prototyping your product

  • Finding manufacturers

  • Competing in a crowded space

  • Planning for direct-to-consumer or other distribution channels

  • Marketing for your product

  • Fundraising options for beauty startups

““If you know the basics, you can get yourself set up in the right way, avoid pain, stop worrying about it, and then concentrate on what you actually want to do, which is make your company a success.” - Kirsty Nathoo, Partner and CFO at Y Combinator

Starting a company can be needlessly complicated and tedious - there’s extensive paperwork, bank visits, legal complexities, and several fees. Many will have to answer questions like “how do I set up payroll?”, “should I file as an S-Corp, C-Corp, or LLC?”, “what docs should I complete to protect my IP?” - all important things to consider for a nascent startup.

Setting up your company correctly will save you lots of pains as your company grows. We’re dedicating a night to topics founders might not give a lot of thought about - startup basics on accounting/finance, HR/payroll, legal, and incorporation.

We’ll have 4 experts give presentations on managing your basic legal and accounting issues so you can focus on building your company. We’ll discuss

  • HR and Payroll fundamentals like setting up comp packages, wages, contracts, benefits, and compliance

  • Legal concerns around trademarking, IP, and lawyers

  • Incorporating your business and the steps involved

  • Accounting and Finance basics for taxes, insurance, assets, and management

Stacklist Event: Funding for Startups: Alternatives to Venture Capital

“Venture capital should come with a warning label. In our experience, VC kills more startups than slow customer adoption, technical debt, and co-founder infighting — combined.” - Eric Paley, Managing Partner at Founder Collective

In 2018, nearly 8,400 venture-backed companies raised more than $130 billion in financing, ($47B more than 2017). With the pool of venture money increasing, venture capital seems to have become the default path for startups.
