Back-to-back Stories from UNH Alumni

Jerome DuBois ’96 and “Concrete Foundations: the Lessons Learned During a Career of Startups” / Toby Ripsom ’01 and “The Entrepreneurial Highs and Lows of Growing a Cannabis Company in Colorado”

"I never designed my life for entrepreneurship, but when it found me, I was ready. Since then I've learned that hard and fast mindsets, goals and plans, rarely prove the final destination. I enrolled at UNH with far flung hopes of skiing in the Olympics, when I graduated I set out for a career in Silicon Valley. None of this came to be, but the skills to seize and execute on the opportunities that did, crafted a life to exceed my youthful dreams, through industries that didn't exist." - Toby Ripsom

Mr. Toby Ripsom '01 is currently the CEO of Avér Skin a cannabinoid-driven skin care firm. Prior to Avér, in 2014 Mr. Ripsom co-founded Colorado's first wholesale cultivation and current market leading luxury flower purveyor since 2014, Veritas Fine Cannabis.

At Veritas Fine Cannabis, Toby actively advises the brand on finance, legal, strategy and expansion. In 2019, Veritas Fine Cannabis contracted with Cookies Enterprises, a California-based flower brand, as their exclusive Colorado cultivator and distributor. Between the two offerings, across a handful of SKU's, Veritas & Cookies are regarded as the connoisseurs choice of cannabis in Colorado and command most of the top shelf real estate across the state, while selling roughly 40,000 units/week. Though artisanal in nature Veritas entities currently own/lease over 70,000 square feet of cultivation in Denver with a constant eye on new acquisitions and further expansion markets. They employ over 125 employees in Colorado to conduct their cultivation and production largely by hand to consistently deliver the highest quality products known to the consumer.

About the event:

The Surprising Sales Mindset of Successful Startup Founders

Garrett Brown and Colin Coggins, sales leaders and instructors of the University of Southern California's popular “Sales Mindset for Entrepreneurs” class, will be hosting an interactive, informative, funny, vulnerable conversation you won't want to miss.

Known for their mindset-focused approach to sales, they show how the best salespeople in the world do the opposite of what traditional sales training teaches, and prove that being a good person and good salesperson are not mutually exclusive.

In this candid discussion, they'll cover:

· How founders can generate their first customers without acting or feeling "salesy";

· How to build a sales culture you can be proud of from the very start; and

· Why the newness of your startup can be an advantage for early sales.

After their talk, they'll leave time to answer any sales questions you have about your own business. Nothing is off limits, so come prepared - this is an amazing opportunity to get their advice on your specific challenges.

Speaker Bios:

Garrett Brown began his career as a corporate lawyer representing entrepreneurs but decided to leave the law and join a tech startup that would allow him to follow his passion. His first role was selling corporate sponsorships for Fastpoint Games, an online gaming platform. He was quickly promoted to run Fastpoint’s Sales and Business Development efforts as VP of Business Development until the company was acquired. He then helped launch and scale Bitium, an enterprise software company where he served as Chief Revenue Officer until the company was acquired by Google. Garrett joined Google in a Revenue Management role where he worked with a wide variety of internal teams and learned countless lessons about the inner workings of one of the most recognizable companies in the world. He is now an active startup investor and advisor, an adjunct professor at USC's Marshall School of Business, and a founding partner of Agency18 (www.agency18growth.com), where he helps companies, build, scale, and inspire sales teams.

Colin Coggins is well-known in the tech community for his unique, process-driven approach to repeatable and scalable revenue generation models, sales IQ, emotional intelligence, and technology evangelism. He has held senior leadership roles at several emerging technology companies including SVP of Sales at Bitium (acquired by Google), Mobile Roadie (acquired by Intellectsoft), Phunware, and Results.com. After Bitium was acquired by Google, Colin went on to lead the global revenue charge as Chief Revenue Officer at Chanje Energy. He now spends a majority of his time teaching, advising, investing, and helping mission-centric companies transition to revenue-forward cultures while staying true to their purpose, as a founding partner of Agency18 (www.agency18growth.com).

$10 gift card to a local restaurant will be awarded to each attendee. Attendance will be verified at the event and gift cards will be distributed after via email. Please confirm the email address where you would like to receive your gift card is the email you use to register for this event.

Attendees will be entered to win one of two $15 Hayden Sports gift cards.
