"Positioning Your Product or Service To Deliver Maximum Value"
Presented by Jim Matheson, Partner, Flagship Ventures & President/CEO, Oasys Water
  

So... you have a new product or service that can
change the world, or at least make you a few bucks!?!
 
 

You're on your way! But, here are a few key questions:

  • Who do you think will buy "IT"?
  • Why will they buy "IT"?
  • How much are they willing to pay for "IT"?
  • Who else is making something like "IT"?
  • And how much (more?) do you need to invest
    before you can find out if "IT" will fly?

In this informative and interactive Webinar, we'll talk about
how to approach these important questions, and how to work through a process to truly communicate the essence of your
product or service. 

What you'll learn in this Expert Series Webinar:

  • What the heck is a "Value Proposition?"
  • How to define and determine the "Value Proposition"
    for YOUR product or service
  • How to define (and hopefully access) potential customers
    for this new product or service
  • How to understand and evaluate the competition
  • How to think about the level of investment you need to make... and when to walk away
