Kickstart your tech career with Lean Sales
Sales in tech is different. You need to make sure you’re being lean, while also using your sales skills to build relationships. Operating in a lean way means you’ll constantly test new approaches with a laser-sharp focus on results. At OnRamp, we’ve been working with tech companies for almost a decade to optimize their sales process and drive results. OnRamp is built to give you the practical skills, and connections, to land an amazing sales career in tech. We’re offering the Lean Sales Bootcamp as part of InceptionU’s Tech Adjacent program.
"I was on the job hunt for what felt like forever when I came across OnRamp. Not only did OnRamp help me land an awesome role in tech, but I now apply what I learned in the course to my work literally every single day!"
“Coming from a manufacturing background, I had never even thought about a career in marketing. I had the experience to understand how to analyze process and project metrics, but I needed to learn how to look at them with a marketing lens. OnRamp taught me how to do that (and so much more) — and now I'm confident that I was meant for a career in tech marketing.”

"After I finished a university marketing course, I quickly realized that my theoretical knowledge wasn't enough. The OnRamp Bootcamp gave me real-world experience through the project work, and helped me to build connections with companies in tech – all while working a fulltime job."
