Julie Novack, CEO and Co-founder of PartySlate, stopped by The Garage weekly Family Dinner to share her insights into the world of digital startups. PartySlate launched in 2015, and offers party hosts of all kinds new and fun ideas and access to top local event professionals who want to share their visions with the world. Unlike other inspiration platforms, PartySlate is designed specifically to give event professionals a better way to showcase their work, build their brand, and collaborate with their clients.
Julie also shared a few key points with the group, including the importance of building valuable relationships in-person (vs. over the phone or e-mail) and how it has helped her raise more capital. Julie also shared her biggest challenge now is staying focused on her vision for PartySlate and not becoming sidetracked or or distracted from her ultimate goal. She recommended a “test and learn” method to get things right and to better understand market size.
