Traversing The Traction Gap Event Recap

PUBLISHED BY Wildcat Venture Partners

June 2, 2016

Last week, Wildcat hosted “Traversing the Traction Gap,” where we debuted the Traction Gap – a framework that describes progressive stages of startup maturity, not tied to financing rounds, during the critical go-to-market phase of a company.

Guests were treated to cocktails and tasty bites while they mingled and took in a sneak peak of the Scotter Laforge and Dariusz Labuzek’s shows at 111 Minna Gallery.

At the event, Geoffrey Moore also led a thought-provoking and inspiring panel discussion featuring Doug Merritt, president and CEO, Splunk; Kevin Nix, president and CEO, StellarLoyalty; Louis Beryl, CEO and founder, Earnest; and Rob Bernshteyn, president and CEO, Coupa. These successful CEOs shared how their companies faced an array of challenges and the steps they took to overcome the Traction Gap and scale to ultimately become market leaders.

We couldn’t have asked for a better night for the brightest startup minds to mix and mingle. Check out some of our favorite shots from the event last Thursday.
