By February 9, 2024No Comments

In this episode of Make Sense, I sit down with Chris Rodriguez, a 20-year marketing veteran with a passion for driving growth and tangible results for brands and entrepreneurs. He has worked with over 30 startups across all tiers of funding (Seed Round to Series E) and sizes (less 10 to 100+), generating brand awareness, web traffic, signups, downloads, and most importantly customers & revenue. He now runs the agency iExcel.co, a B2B SaaS-focused demand generation and marketing operations agency based out of the greater Washington DC area.
