Mike Farber / The ROI Shop
I have over 16 years of software sales experience working for companies like Xactly Corporation and Concur Technologies. Based on the struggles I along with my colleagues have experienced during the sales cycles we set out to create a one of a kind sales enablement tool (by a sales person for a sales person) to help in an area that most organizations struggle with…. Selling “VALUE”
We have developed a unique application that enable sales people to collaborate and build the financial justification (ROI) with their prospects in a way that has never been done before.
Our “Value” selling application will: • Reduce “NO DECISIONS” by painting a more compelling picture • Provide your “CHAMPION” a tool that will help them sell the project internally • Enable your sales people to have those critical financial discussions • Further qualify opportunities • Clearly separate you from the competition

Dara Albright / Dara Albright Events
Dara Albright is a recognized authority, thought provoker and frequent speaker on topics relating to market structure, private secondary transactions, next-gen IPOs, P2P and crowdfinance. Albright has held a distinguished 22 year career in IPO execution, investment banking, corporate communications, financial marketing as well as institutional and retail sales. She is a visionary who continues to introduce rising asset classes and crowd-structured financial products to the Wall Street community.
Through her NowStreet blog, Albright was one of the earliest voices covering the JOBS Act and advocating for greater democracy in the equity and credit markets. She produced the very first crowdfunding conference in January 2012 which was headlined by key JOBS Act architects: Congressman Patrick McHenry and Dave Weild. That event helped birth the crowdfinance movement and led to the founding of the industry’s trade and leadership organizations. In 2013, she co-founded LendIt which went on to become the largest and most recognized global p2p & online lending conference organization. Some of the most prominent figures in the financial industry as well as the legislature continue to participate in Albright’s events. Her leading-edge articles that have helped shape the direction of the crowdfinance industry can be found on Equities.com, Crowdfund Insider, Seeking Alpha, Investing.com and Business Insider. She has been featured in Forbes, ABA Banking Journal, Thestreet.com, Private Wealth Magazine as well as in a number of leading industry trade publications. Albright continues to help issuers, investors as well as financial service providers across the globe capitalize during this unprecedented period of financial industry disruption and regulatory reform.
Prior firms she worked for include: Unterberg Towbin, Morgan Stanley Dean Witter, Divine Capital and Citigate Dewe Rogerson. Albright is a proud board member of SparkMarket, the nation’s first bona fide crowdfunding portal allowing unaccredited investors to legally crowdfund via intrastate exemption. She is a graduate of the George Washington University and holds securities industry Series 7, 24, 31 and 63 licenses.
