$35k MRR startup - looking for a growth / marketing co-founder

I'm an experienced founder with a number of exits under my belt (ranging from $100k to 7 figures). In the past I've always been a solo-founder but I think if I'm honest, this has held me back as I’m a product / vision guy at heart.

I'd love to find someone with a real passion (and ability) for growth / marketing to join me as a co-founder at HeySummit (https://heysummit.com).

HeySummit is an all-in-one virtual event platform that makes it easy to host, promote, and sell your event.

The platform and tech is solid and we have $35k+ in MRR.

I have big plans for 2023 in terms of where I think we can take the product. But I can't do this alone (or if I can, it will be too slow and not as fun!).

If you love nothing more than digging your teeth into marketing strategies and all things growth, then I’d love to chat!

Bonus points if you’re based in the UK.

      Hey Andrew, thanks for reaching out. Love the overlap with the creator and event space. But from a pure SaaS growth and marketing standpoint, is that a focus and role that excites you?

Email is jk at copystack.xyz

    Hi Ben,

    My name is Phillip, I'm a first year in college over on the East coast of the US. I've got hustle, and plenty of ideas for non-traditional ways to scale products. In a related sense, I used to run an NFT consulting gig with digitized tickets for online music artists and DJs and I still have contacts for some clients. Let's find a good time to get on a call soon.

    I can't wait to get out of bed because I love marketing strategy and execution! :D

    I'd love to learn more about those grand plans for 2023 and see if I can be of any assistance (or point you toward someone who could). Sophia (at) ignores no more. the agency is my email address. This work is outstanding! Good work! I'd be delighted to discuss possibilities with you. I'm a tech fanatic and a full-stack marketer, so we might fit! I have a passport, and am in the time zone, but I'm not in the UK; I just enjoy the sun.

      I think ive just sent you an email. Can you confirm?

      Reason I'm asking is that your response here looks very similar to the one below (re:"not in the UK; I just enjoy the sun).

        Hi @bendell the user above is most likely a bot. They just rephrased and merged two other comments in the thread
