We contribute to a better world by helping entrepreneurs become and remain successful through flexible, affordable, no bullshit sales support.

About the SalesPlaybook universe

Switzerland’s “Sales State of the Nation” is far from great and most great sales people are working in large corporates. Or they are sales trainers for these corporates and SMEs since it is easier and more profitable than helping startups hit Product-Market-Fit and scale up sales faster without hiring expensive sales reps.

We are a couple of committed, hungry, purpose-driven sales people, many of them entrepreneurs themselves with a sincere commitment to help founders succeed.
