The Elevator Pitch: Sell Them on Your Idea, Your Product, Your Company, You!
Identifying, cultivating, hiring and motivating talent are some of the biggest challenges facing startups. These tasks are critical for success, but how do companies manage these processes in addition to everything else on their plate?
Designing your product for a customer is hard. How do you ask questions without “selling”? How do you get the information you need to build the right product for the right price without biasing the sample? How do you ensure quality actionable results? How do you set up the experiment so that you’ve got the optimum product before you take it to market? How do you ensure that customers will accept and use the product properly?
