Event description

Description

Just because your application or software is usable doesn’t mean people will want to use it. User experience (UX) and User Interface (UI) design are key to customer acquisition and can even influence investment opportunities.

Don’t let bad customer experience and design shroud your great idea and doom your startup/MVP before you even get off the ground.

This panel will explore the threshold for a “minimum delightful product,” and will talk about how to factor in experience and design to increase your odds of overall success.

This event is part of the Product & Design Track at Startup Boston Week 2019. And is perfect for companies in the Idea Stage.
