The Organiser: Matt Lerner

I spent most of my career building and running marketing teams in Silicon Valley, notably at PayPal. After moving to London, I became a VC, and set up 500 Startups “Distro Dojo” growth accelerator, which helped 35 startups achieve average YoY growth of 250%.

After watching hundreds of European startups waste investors’ money on bad marketing hires and expensive non-scalable tactics, I founded Startup Core Strengths to help startups learn the foundational mindset and habits to drive sustainable growth. Through e-books, guides, workshops, online learning and occasionally direct coaching, startup founders and marketers can move beyond tactics and learn to build these “core strengths.”
