Course Description

Business Development Brand New Course.  Launched May 2016!


What do Kayak, Uber, AirBnB, Match, OnePage, Dropbox and Google all have in common?

They all used business development partnership channels to grow their startups

You probably heard about their success stories and how they are worth millions, if not billions of dollars today. They are called Unicorns. 

BUT every single one of them grew because they looked beyond standard sales and marketing models and found partnership opportunities others would had never imagined.

  • Kayak integrated with USA Today to power their travel section
  • Match[dot]com integrated with Yahoo to form the Yahoo Dating section.
  • Airbnb partnered with Nest to help save energy
  • Uber partnered with the National Association of the Deaf to cater to the needs of the hearing-challenged.
  • Onepager partnered with domain registrar Namecheap to offer their services to their huge user base
  • Google owes much of its early growth to channel partnerships with companies such as Yahoo and AOL.  Today, it makes billions as a channel partner for thousands of smaller brands.
  • Dropbox is huge because it was installed on every Samsung phone

Even good old Hilton Hotels often books the majority of its rooms through channel partners like Expedia and Orbitz.

None of these companies became what they are today just because of investors or early funding.   Instead they BECAME GREAT because they used the right partners early on in their startup life.

As an entrepreneur, or a small business owner you need to learn how to build your company using the right type of partners at the right time.

Hi! I'm Jackie. I have a degree in Architecture from U.C. Berkeley. An MBA from Nova University, a Master of Science in Finance from FIU and you might say I eat, breathe and sleep business growth!

I own a Digital Marketing Agency. My company, iPivot [dot] co, caters B2B Vertical Markets. My other company Marques [dot] so, specializes in Sales Automation, Inbound Marketing & Mobile Marketing for Smaller Companies.

I earned the “National Leadership Award," “2,000 Notable American Women," “National Dean's List Award of Merit" and “The National Leadership Honorary Co-Chairman Award." In addition, I was nominated "Forbes 30 Women to Follow on Twitter" and "100 Most Powerful Women on Twitter." I am also a Member of "Forbes' Insights Advisory Panel".

I created this course to teach you how you can accelerate your starup growth by using business development techniques to build your own partnerships and alliances.

What we're going to cover:

>> The ONE reason why you should not delay implementing partnerships and alliances in your small business or startup

>> The most important rule you must follow before selecting a potential partner

>> How to build competitive advantage like a pro

>> Ways to generate additional revenue and fast cash-flow for your small business or startup

>> How to get potential partners knocking on your door wanting to do business with you!

>> How to quickly build trust and credibility even if you have none today

>> How to leverage your partnerships to build a valuable and sellable business

>> Much more! And we're going to do this, all in less than a week!

Included in this course: Two CASE STUDIES. Mine shows you how in 3 short months I created 5 different income streams from different partners by setting up the correct strategy from day one.  The second Case Study is Jerry’s Banfield who so graciously accepted to show you step-by-step how he sold over half a million dollars on Udemy using Partnerships and Alliances 

This knowledge took years to master and create…our Udemy students will get them for FREE.

The course is divided into 9 easy to follow modules that combine both theory and real life implementation so that you can actually see how partnerships and alliances can be created no matter what size business you have.  Even if you are a solopreneur working from home. 

I know the frustration when someone needs help to fill a business void but doesn’t have the slightest clue where and how to get it.

REMEMBER: You have a business and it's not going to get more valuable by trying to do all the heavy lifting all by yourself. Let me show you how to leverage other people’s businesses and quickly piggyback on their success

Instructor Biography

Jackie Burgoa, MBA, MSF, Growth Hacker, Digital Marketer - Fintech & Crowdfunding OCD

Hi! I'm Jackie Burgoa. I have a degree in Architecture from U.C. Berkeley. An MBA from Nova University, a Master of Science in Finance from FIU and you might say I eat, breathe and sleep business growth!

I am a full-time Digital Marketer. My company Marques [dot] so specializes in Sales Funnels.  iPIvot [dot] co, is a Self-Serve Turn-Key advertising platform for marketing campaigns & remarketing.  AnimatedVideoEffects [dot] com specializes in Intros, Outros and other Video Effects for Video Marketing.  Last, but not least, iGrowHack [dot] com (soon to go live) will specialize in piggybacking on other successful companies’ web traffic.


I earned the “National Leadership Award," “2,000 Notable American Women," “National Dean's List Award of Merit" and “The National Leadership Honorary Co-Chairman Award." In addition, I was nominated “Forbes 30 Women to Follow on Twitter" and "100 Most Powerful Women on Twitter” I am also a Member of "Forbes' Insights Advisory Panel".


I am the product of U.C. Berkeley School of Architecture, Nova University Masters in Business Administration and FIU's Masters of Science in Finance.

Business and Travel

I have lived and worked in Singapore, Bolivia and the U.S. For the past 18 years I have managed and operated my own eBusiness. The first ten as a brick-and-mortar and the last eight, as a fully cloud-based online business. Before selling it, this eBusiness was my real-working lab where I tested and applied all my strategic business theories. All my knowledge and experience now gets applied to Digital Marketing and Growth Hacking.

As a digital marketer and business owner, I spend most of my time learning and applying strategies on how to grow a business so I can sell it at a profit.  I share everything I learned over the past 18+ years in my online courses.

Since my target market are B2B middle market companies, I am not able to share my results on any of my courses due to non-disclosure constraints.  To overcome this challenge, I built SovereignWomen [dot] net as a real-live Case Study for all my online courses. Everything I teach is first applied in real life, and then I build a course using the real outcome and data:

My first course "The COMPLETE Business Ideas Blueprint for Startups!"  is the actual research and validation I did for SovereignWomen [dot] net PRIOR to starting that business, buying the domain or even coming up with the name.  This course goes in depth on how to see if you have a potential winner before you spend time or money building a business.  So if you want to know the REAL numbers behind SovereignWomen [dot] net all you have to do is take this course and apply the same techniques to any potential business idea you may have in order to mitigate risk of failure.

My second course "The COMPLETE Digital Marketing and Sales Funnel Blueprint!" is the actual digital marketing blueprint I use for my clients.  It is also the exact blueprint I used to develop SovereignWomen [dot] net.  If you want to learn how to build an online business, your best bet is to take this course first.  You will understand how to strategically structure your marketing campaigns before spending a penny on wasted ads or promotions.  I built this course to validate my idea in the first course Business Ideas.  In other words, the first course (Business Ideas) gave me the numbers I needed to find out if my idea was viable and the second course (Digital Marketing) confirmed that people were willing to buy what I had to sell. 

My third course "The COMPLETE Business Development For Startups & Small Biz" is the exact methodology I use to build alliances and partnerships.  When you go to SovereignWomen [dot] net, you see a coherent site where you can find everything you need to learn, plan, launch and manage your marketing campaigns.  What you do not see, are the numerous ventures, partnerships and alliances silently performing on the back-end.  This third course shows you how to approach potential partners and alliances to grow your business fast and is based on the exact same methods I use when building partnerships.

So as you can see, I actually do what I teach.  The reason sometimes it takes me a long time to launch a course, is because I am waiting for data and results before I share them with you.  I have made huge mistakes in my business life that have cost me dearly.  I know that if I approach my courses this way, I can have the peace of mind, that what I am showing you is real, that it works, that it can help you...while minimizing any potential business risk if applied properly. 

To your success!

Jackie Burgoa
