July 24 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm UTC+0
In the early stages of a startup, the company’s sole focus should be on developing a valuable product. In the words of Sam Altman, Founder and CEO of Y Combinator:
“Until you have a built a great product, nothing else matters. You could get everything else about your business wrong, and a great product will often still pull you through. However, you could get everything else about your business right—but if you’re unable to build a great product, you are certain to fail.”
Where should you get started in building your product? How should you determine what is valuable to your customers? What does it take in order to start building a great product right now?
Join us to learn about insights on building great teams and great products, developed over years of experience funding, scaling and exiting great startups. Speaker to be confirmed.
