Lessons Learned in Commercialization

Why do so many products and companies fail to achieve commercial success? Innovators and business leaders clearly demonstrate their passion and belief in their vision by finding creative ways to raise significant capital and pour tremendous amounts of energy and resources into launching their products and services. And yet strategic marketing in new product development is often treated as an after-thought.

The mission of Marketing Mondays is to help business people in The Research Triangle Park and across the Research Triangle Region market their products, services and technologies more effectively. So we’re pleased to have Jarrod Hamilton, Director at CMG Partners, talk about “Lessons Learned in Commercialization.”

Based on his experiences working with numerous companies across different industries, Jarrod will highlight lessons he has learned in launching various products. Jarrod will also share his insights on how to maximize opportunities while mitigating risk during new product development and launch. In sharing these lessons, he will highlight case studies from pharmaceutical, consumer health and B2B software industries.

If you want to achieve commercial success with your products or services, you’ll want to attend this session! Please join us for a networking reception following the presentation.
