Last month, AZTB visited Infusionsoft for its monthly Lunch and Learn to get down to the nitty-gritty reality of owning a startup. Infusionsoft’s Vice President of Talent Anita Grantham gave an inspiring talk about her own struggles with owning a small business and gave the audience three important tips to managing their businesses.
Her top tips:
- Prioritize the brutal facts and what keeps you up at night
- Clearly define your company’s purpose and match it with your partners
- Go directly to your customers for their opinions to help you navigate the negative

Every month, AZ Tech Beat puts on a free Lunch and Learn, where leaders in Arizona’s technology industry give informative and motivational talks that can be applied to the real-life reality of owning a business. Connections, startups and friendships have started at this event.
This month, Annette Zinky, president and CEO of Northern Arizona Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology, will be joining us at Axosoft to talk about employee recruitment, engagement and management.
Since a company can’t function without its employees, Zinky will be discussing how to identify a company’s culture and find the right fit with hires. Along with this, she will be diving into how to address employee problems, transitions and engagement.
Zinky is an entrepreneur with over 15 years of experience owning a small business and she was the director of the Small Business Development Center in Flagstaff, Ariz. Besides running the NACET, Zinky also serves on the boards of directors for the Goodwill Industries of Northern Arizona, the Flagstaff Arts and Leadership Academy and the Arizona Business Incubation Association.
With plenty of real-life experience under her belt, get ready for Zinky’s real, raw and motivational talk, so sign up soon as tickets sell out quickly!
