VENN Synopsis

ETR’s VENN is a closed community engagement platform that purposefully overlays the intelligence of the entire aptiviti ecosystem.

VENN leverages ETR’s data and facilitates a curated platform between end-users, technology investors, and vendor executives that are statistically aligned for each other.

Additionally - the VENN engagements (both physical and virtual) generate a full suite of proprietary research content based off these discussions, including: executive summaries, attendee feedback surveys, full transcripts, supporting data cuts and replays/podcasts.

The core goal is to thoroughly demystify the current and coming technology landscape by matching ETR’s quantitative findings of who, what, when and where with the vital qualitative reasoning of why.


VENN Primary Initiatives

Convert existing buy-side/investor prospects into paying subscribers via attendance + heightened engagement with content deliverables.

Gain attention of additional buy-side/investor contacts; transition cold-leads to prospects.

Promote VENN engagement and brand recognition with the both existing ETR end-user community & new potential members.

Event attendance + Content engagement

Intelligently engage and build new/strengthen existing relationships with technology vendors and start-ups, feeding a pipeline of future engagements.
