Event description

Description

As a startup you pivot till you can find product-market fit, right? The reality is that very few startups survive a series of pivots. Both Agile and Lean Startup are great for smart, feedback-driven execution — but they can't replace the foundation of product vision and strategy. How do you reduce the number of iterations and increase your runway by building your product in a more capital efficient way? Join the creators of the Radical Product Toolkit to learn how to create a powerful, far-reaching vision for your product, develop a clear product strategy, and prioritize product decision making. You’ll also learn how to balance long-term strategic considerations with the day-to-day needs of your company. Join us for this event hosted by HubSpot and Founder Institute.
