A Quick Biography
I’m Josh Braun, the Founder of Sales for Starters and most recently, the Head of Business Development for Basecamp in Chicago where I helped conduct customer interviews, increase conversion rates, drive sign ups and form strategic partnerships.
Prior to Basecamp, I was the VP of Business Development for Jellyvision where I was the top producer every year. I moved to managing where I trained and coached sales development reps into top performers. (Here’s a lovely letter from Sam, one of the sales development reps I worked with.)
I got my start at ChildU, an education startup, where I headed up sales and grew revenue from zero to 6 million prior to being acquired by CompassLearning.
In my early days I was an elementary school teacher and the founder of Megahedz, an after school technology camp.
I’m currently the VP of Growth & Acquisition for Animal Pharmaceuticals.
I enjoy training for triathlons, and hope to do a full Ironman one day.
