We enable entrepreneurs, sales managers and salespeople to grow their Sales Leadership Skills FAST.
Sales and Sales Management can be frustrating, especially if you feel you are not quite up to your own ambitions and you are missing something that makes you more successful or simply makes your life easier.
You know you could learn a few important things that would help you but you can't afford spending a week in class or countless hours online. You would rather go for a hyper dense course that matches your busy schedule and gives you an extensive view on what makes the difference in Sales and Sales Management.
EPFL Innovation Park created a short 4 half-day course to get your hands on the tips and tricks to build up your sales skills and to manage a fast-growing sales organisation. A course that will help you get in the league of salespeople and sales managers of companies that outperform their competition.

" I very much enjoyed participating in the Sales Management Academy course.
I gained a lot of valuable and actionable insights that will help me further shape my startup.
My only regret is that I did not find this course earlier in my startup journey."
Head of Presales at icCube
"The strength of Fast Track Sales Academy course lies on the actionable ways to improve your sales processes, independently of your company's stage. The professional diversity of the team enriched the course's content and debates in each session.
I definitely recommend the course if you are looking to have a deeper understanding on sales models, processes, tools, management and growth. Two thumbs up!"
CEO and Founder at Aurora's Grid
"Fast Track sales class: very useful! The Trainers started from the basic knowledge of sale-cycles and gradually explained how to manage sales with specific tools and dedicated methodologies. Very useful the tips on “recruiting sales-team”. I definitively suggest this class to start-up facing off with sales management!"
Head of Key Account Management at LEMO
"A perfect fit for what I was looking for as the course gives a truly holistic view of the Sales function, covering all key aspects and all angles! As an experienced sales professional with mostly big corporation background, it gave me exactly what I needed to transfer into the exciting world of smaller and more agile organisations as I was able to combine my "corporate" experience with the content of the course geared towards startups and SMEs. All of this in a fun atmosphere and an exciting blend of participants."
