Raid The Fridge: MARKETING

Thu, 25 Oct 2018 18:30 - 23:00

Kickstart Investment/Workspace

55 Paseo de Roxas, Urdaneta Village, Makati City


We all know marketing is essential for all businesses, but it's even more important for startups.

As startup founders and entrepreneurs are figuring out the scalability, repeatability, and profitability of their businesses, what role does marketing play? More importantly, how should a startup -- with less the breadth and depth of marketing resources large corporations pour into their brands -- compete for customer attention and share of wallet?

Join our Raid The Fridge this month, October 25th, and listen to our guest speaker LEIGH REYES, MullenLowe Philippines president and chief creative officer, share her thoughts on the topic.

Why Attend?
Leigh is no stranger to the #startupPH community: as co-founder of MobileMonday Manila, which was bringing together the local mobile industry visionaries, developers, and influentials waaaaaay ahead of the 1st-ever edition of Startup Weekend Manila in October 2011, she understands digital tech + entrepreneurs = startups. She is an OG member of the #startupPH community!

So come to Raid The Fridge and be part of the conversation: bring your questions, seek answers or advice around marketing for startups!

And yes, don't forget to help us empty our fridge: make new friends, reconnect with old friends, and swap #startupPH stories over beers.

Your Fridgemaster,

PIA BERNAL | Kickstart Community Manager
