This year, during the Spark.me conference, we had a chance to talk about startup development with Jon Burkhart, one of the judges of the Spark.me Startup Competition.
Jon is a keynote speaker, author, content strategist, and founder of TBC Global marketing consultancy. Moreover, he is the eight time speaker at the world’s largest tech and startup festival, South by Southwest (SXSW), and a board advisory of the festival for five years.
During one of the short breaks at the conference, we talked with Jon about elements of a successful startup, crucial steps to help you turn your idea into a lucrative startup, delivering a quality pitch to investors or judges, differences between investment and revenue, and more.
