Most companies fail not because the product doesn’t work, but because customers do not want a company’s product or service.
This webinar will provide the tools you need to identity a problem or market need, identify the different types of markets and help you understand who are your customers, what are their needs so you can develop products to meet them. Learn how you can use a customer-centric approach to validate your assumptions about product-market fit.
