TEC Innovation District presents: Perspectives on your product

May 1, 2018 @ 8:00 AM - 9:15 PM

Event Overview

Sometimes, we get so focused on looking at our product from a business perspective that we forget to step back and look at it from a customers’ viewpoint. Oftentimes, our product story sounds way better when it’s told from a customers’ perspective – and that’s something we should capitalize on.

Join us for a conversation on business perspective vs. customer perspective, market fit, MVPs and the steps towards revenue. Also get a chance to ask our TEC VA Angels anything that’s on your mind!
