THAT WORKS AND
Smart startup founders who want to win MUST become master marketers, strategists, and persuaders.
But where can you find the time to WIN, while running a chaotic startup (and having a life)? You could try a book or podcast, but do you have the time? The startup world moves so fast that the information will soon be outdated. And the podcast isn’t tailored to your situation.
What I know is relevant, current, and tested in the field with real businesses to grow your business.
IF YOU’VE EVER ASKED YOURSELF THE QUESTIONS BELOW, I CAN HELP YOU.
- “How can I get my startup off the ground?”
- “How can I prevent my startup from going bankrupt?”
- “How can I market this amazing product I’ve built?”
- “How do I hire rockstar employees?”
- “How can I inspire VCs to invest in my dream?”
What People Say
It was great working with Sweta at Gbox. I originally contacted Sweta a few months ago about attending an event I was hosting. Had I never reached out to Sweta I would have never had a job at Gbox. Sweta recognized my talents and abilities right away. Therefore, she is the perfect person to meet in case one is looking for a job or career change. In addition, Sweta has a business acumen that is very rare; the ability to make quick decisions and admit and fix her own mistakes. What is also very impressive is that Sweta has also co-authored a book on video marketing that is available at Barnes and Nobles. Writing a paperback book sold at bookstores is unquestionably an amazing milestones for anyone to achieve. Especially for an individual under 30 years of age, such as Sweta.-
Few people are as hard working, passionate about their career, and possess a sharp entrepreneurial instinct as Sweta. Her encyclopedic knowledge of both the fundamentals and cutting edge of marketing have not only enriched the teams she's worked with, but countless clients who've realized tangible results from her expertise. I've been inspired by the dedication, boldness, and creativity displayed not just during our time together at Gbox, but also her long track record of publications, entrepreneurial success, and her substantial professional network. Given how she's achieved at an age where many are still figuring things out, I know I and many others will be excited to watch her go even further.
Sweta is a high-impact, professional marketer with creative ways of turning customer interactions into selling opportunities. Sweta truly understands how to run end-to-end demand gen programs – creating, implementing, delivering, measuring, and even adjusting programs to improve results. She brings a fresh perspective with her consistent "can do" attitude and meets challenging projects with minimal resources. She stays on the cutting edge of all the latest marketing trends/technologies and is always teaching me something new. Sweta is one of the most dedicated and hardworking people I’ve worked with. Her work ethic, analytical and marketing skills make her a tremendous asset to any size team. I’d be happy to work with her again or recommend her work.
Hi, I’m Sweta Patel.
Most people don’t know this, but my personal mantra has always been “Dollars Over Dudes.” Maybe it was my strict Indian upbringing, but I’ve always valued freedom and responsibility. That freedom has brought great success and crushing lows.
At 21, I founded my first marketing agency in San Diego, managing campaigns for national brands while doing charitable work with young domestic violence victims. Things were rosy for a while, but my agency grew too quickly. I didn’t have the systems to support the scale. I hired too soon without proper diligence. My startup and dreams started to falter.
In a desperate attempt to bring in cash flow, I browsed AngelList for opportunities and reached out to founders who I could add value to. The rest is history. I closed my agency, moved to Silicon Valley and became a trusted marketing confidant for overwhelmed CEOs. Today, I’ve advised over 200 early-stage startups and high-growth companies, saving nearly 150 from imminent collapse, and increased their average recurring monthly revenue by 20%.
I apply what I’ve learned to stuff that matters — making your startup succeed.
