We are Momentum.
We love big ideas, big visions and helping them come to life. Whether you’re an inventor, budding entrepreneur, growing startup, non-profit or simply interested in supporting your community, we have a place for you at Momentum.
Because Sales Culture has to change. Atlantic Canadian products and services are highly regarded. The digital revolution has seen us lose some of our ability to effectively market ourselves.
We recently spoke with Entrevestor to explain how we plan to help:
'Momentum’s programs include one that matches people who want to learn to sell with companies that can’t afford salespeople.
“We want to build a new generation of salespeople and healthier companies,” said CEO Joanna Killen, who co-founded Momentum with Corey Dugas and Nicholas Clermont.
“Gerry Pond (a veteran New Brunswick investor) has said that Atlantic Canadian companies can’t scale to significant size without greater expertise in selling to international customers.”
Killen said Momentum is currently training five novice salespeople. The trainees are paid a percentage of the value of the business they create for client companies.
“We work across sectors to help develop sales strategies,” Killen said.
The trainees’ clients include high-growth startups, established companies that need new ways to boost sales, and non-profits looking for strategies for fundraising.
Momentum was developed at a startup weekend in Moncton last November, where Killen pitched the idea after realizing there were many companies struggling with sales.
Some of the students attending the startup weekend signed up with Momentum, which is located in the Saint John Enterprise Hub.'
