Definition:
Strategic business development is an investment in systematically mapping
and networking your ecosystem to drive transformational opportunities.
Although the CEO will be heavily involved at times, it’s not primarily the CEO’s
role. Nor should strategic BD be confused with Sales. Although very
complementary to Sales, it’s also very different in that it doesn’t follow a
quarterly cadence. It’s focused on a very few high-impact events a year
rather than a large volume of quarterly transactions, so it should have separate
goals and incentives from those of Sales. Strategic BD should be low
headcount and high impact, led by a senior professional operating at a peer
level to Sales, Engineering and other company functions.

SO…why is Business Development important?
“What distinguishes
the winners
 Need to create a network of partners that can assist with reselling
or allowing
from everyone else is that they
access to your product
are systematically networked into
 Strategic chess moves
 Scalable = “more feet on the street”
 Direct sales is $$$$
all of the surrounding companies
that matter, so they can identify
and seize the transformational
opportunity when the time
comes.”

O’Farrell,
Andreessen Horowitz
 Enhances and lends creditably to your product
 Gets everyone involved:
 Developers are your friends, they will make your product better
 FOCUS on the things that matter:
 What do we want to be when we grow up?
 What will move the needle?

What I’ve Learned About Business Development
1. Identify goals for each partnership
• Revenue, reach, block competition, global expansion
2. Business Development is not “sales”---technically, put on your strategic
thinking cap
3. Things change on a daily basis- oh boy, do they!
4. Identify key areas of FOCUS
5. Leverage the Developer community (because they rock)
6. Global expansion will not happen without a robust partner ecosystem
7. Provide self-service resources for partners= life saver!
8. Build a professional network & stay informed
• I never want to be the last to know
9. Communicate your plans & manage up
10. Collaboration is the name of the game
11. MOST IMPORTATNLY, HAVE
FUN!!!
