Start a business at 36? Lead a start-up to build a new category in an industry with a big problem but little awareness? 

At the height of his career, Sangram Vajre had the calling to pursue a vision that would challenge that status quo and flip the script on his life, career, and for an entire industry. 

He was on a mission to solve a problem that sales and marketing teams were facing for years. Only 1% of leads were turning into sales. 

Solution: Account-Based Marketing + Courageous Leadership 

Account-Based Marketing Definition (2019): An end-to-end go-to-market strategy designed to focus a majority of marketing, sales, and success effort on the pre- and post-sales accounts with the highest likelihood of closing, through data-driven targeting and personalization programs at scale.

Sangram Vajre is the Co-Founder and CMO of Terminus and one of the leading minds in B2B marketing. Before co-founding Terminus, a SaaS platform for account-based marketing, Sangram led the marketing team at Pardot through its acquisition by ExactTarget and then Salesforce. He created the FlipMyFunnel Community in 2014 to provide a place for B2B marketing and sales innovators to foster the account-based mindset and to learn from each other. 

Sangram is an international keynote speaker, big hugger, and host of the top 50 business podcast called FlipMyFunnel with over 100,000 subscribers.
