- Identification of target audiences (Who will receive your outreach email?)

- Productively researching companies (through web search, trade association directories, Linkedin, etc.) 

- How to best write a cold outreach email template and the importance of follow-ups (to be at the forefront of people’s minds)

- Business culture insights (do’s and don'ts)

- Preparing partnering materials targeting potential partners to explore synergies
