You need answers now.

That's why Exit Five is a community, not a high-priced course teaching concepts and theory. It's not a shot-in-the-dark Google search that gives you the most "optimized" answer instead of what you need.

The Exit Five Community helps you shortcut the
learning & growth curve.

Traditionally there have been three ways to improve your B2B marketing chops:

Gain experience

Learn, experiment, and absorb information over 5-10 years.

Pay for courses

Shell out your own money for high-priced courses heavy on theory, not on application.

Randomized learning

Google searches and YouTube videos showing content optimized for search, not for learning.

Instead of:

Waiting 5-10 years to gain experience...


Paying for courses that are heavy on theory but light on application...


Googling for answers or watching random YouTube videos...

Created by me, Dave Gerhardt. I've been in B2B marketing for a decade working in marketing leadership roles at Drift and Privy. Today I'm spending my time building a community of B2B marketing pros to give you the resources outside of work I didn't have available to me earlier in my career.

The story behind the name Exit Five

Living in Boston my wife and I would always escape to her parents house in the woods in Vermont and I grew to love it and Vermont became a place of inspiration for me during my career. I would be stuck on work things all week, but in Vermont going for walks, sauna, golf, hiking, being off the grid, that is the place I would find clarity and get inspiration. So much so that my Mother In Law will joke "what new ideas are you going to come up with this weekend?" To get to their house you get off at Exit Five. So that's where it comes from. And my hope is that Exit Five in the digital form can be that type of place where B2B marketers can get unstuck and inspired with new ideas.
