Startup Secrets: Turning Products into Companies
Tuesday, April 16, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (EDT)
Boston, United States
Startup Secrets Series: Turning Products into Companies with Michael Skok of North Bridge Venture Partners
You’ve figured out your value prop, you’ve got a great product under development. Now what? How can you develop a roadmap to build a company? VCs often qualify deals as being a “feature” a “product” or a “company.” Which do you have and how will you get where you want to go? During this session we’ll discuss how to think about designing your product as a foundational element of your business. Think beyond UX and Architecture to Whole Product, Ecosystems, and Strategic partners. Formulate how to design your go to market strategy and business model into your product with a modular architecture, distinctive packaging and a frictionless approach.
