Let's make your awesome idea into an awesome business
Technology enables businesses everywhere to build and launch their product concepts more quickly and simply than ever before. But in the crowded market place that results, it is imperative that innovators strive to create genuine Product/Market Fit before launching.
There are many valid definitions of Product/Market Fit, but the critical essence of all of them is that you have created a product that a lot of people really want, and you can convert this demand into a profitable business outcome. Read more about this in my post on Medium.
Innovators that achieve Product/Market Fit create sustainable futures for their businesses, that can grow and create profit long after the initial launch dollars are switched off. Those that don't may achieve short term success, but in the longer term the product will lose traction with customers, become unprofitable and ultimately be killed.
Achieve genuine customer traction by optimizing for Product/Market Fit.
