IASCK - May 20th, 2013 Meeting
Presenter Ross Jordan,
Certified Global Business Professional
KSBDC Consultant Ross Jordan,
one of only four
Certified Global Business Professionals in Kansas.
"Concept to Cash" is a presentation designed to bring marketing reality to the innovation. So many great ideas wither and die, or are stolen. Why do some concepts grow while others fail? Ross will be discussing topics such as patenting risks, positioning of IP, executables, finance and investor relations. Maneuvering the road to success requires more than just a good idea. Not knowing what you don't know is dangerous. Learn how to move your product or service through the minefield of commercialization. What you need to know, when you need to act, and how to succeed professionally.
Ross Jordan was born and raised in the Midwest. Ross has been involved with five successful start-up companies and has served in the positions of president, director of marketing, and international market development. Ross is well-known for assisting enterprises of all sizes in executing strategic plans for expansion and market penetration domestically and internationally. In 2006, Ross launched his own international management consulting firm and has advised organizations in Africa, Brazil, China, the Caribbean, Colombia, Europe, India, Malaysia, Mexico, and the Middle East. Ross has been instrumental in bringing start-up products to market and has worked with countless well-known universities and business entities to develop, design, and engineer products for market.
