LDFW: Thanks for sitting down with us Jamie. Dallas is thrilled to be hosting this popup event. Is the first one?
JAMIE: It’s actually our fourth event. The first one took place last November in NYC. Due to the positive community response we received, we decided to host additional events in Chicago and Atlanta. Dallas is now fourth and we’re really excited to bring it here.
LDFW: What was the idea behind the event?
JAMIE: Salesforce has over 150,000 customers and we’ve learned so much from them. We’ve taken what we’ve heard, all of the lessons learned, and built out a community designed to bring together small businesses in a big way. This event isn’t a sales pitch. It truly is an event for the community.
A big part of Salesforce is also giving back. For the Dallas event, football great Darren Woodson will be in attendance and will be making a donation to Teach4Service, an organization that connects military children with quality tutoring wherever they’re stationed around the world. We’re really excited about that.
LDFW: Who is the ideal attendee?
JAMIE: There is something for everyone. A budding entrepreneur can do some serious networking with the other attendees and thought leaders in the room, but if you’re an established company, there will also be a lot of resources to help you grow too. We’ve got a dynamic VC panel to talk about all things funding and attendees will have a chance to do a one-one consultation with a Salesforce representative to talk about their business goals and plans.
LDFW: We’re big fans of Emmitt Smith and were excited to see him as the featured speaker. How did you decide on him for the event?
JAMIE: Emmitt is a symbol of perseverance, hard work, being a part of a team and also dealing with wins and losses which are applicable for anyone starting a business. We’ll hear about his inspirational journey and how he’s gotten to where he is today with his career.
LDFW: What’s next for Salesforce?
JAMIE: There’s always something exciting coming out of Salesforce! From a trends perspective, Artificial Intelligence is huge. Small businesses should definitely care about AI and we’re introducing so much new technology over the year. Our mission is to bring AI to small businesses which will hopefully help in making their lives easier.
