What can go wrong if you don't prioritize customer validation?

What can go wrong if you don't prioritize customer validation?

In this week’s Facebook Live chat, Tiffany shares all of the things that can go wrong if you don’t prioritize customer validation at the very early stages of your product development.

Sometimes it can feel like taking the time to prove that your customers experience the problem your gut is telling you that they do is postponing all the fun parts of entrepreneurship. We all want to dive into prototypes, product roadmaps and even marketing, but if you don’t understand your customers' pain points and how you can create the most value for them, it’s like building a house on quicksand.

If you want to lay a solid foundation for your product idea, join us for Preflight 1 - Customer Validation. You’ll spend five-weeks getting to know your customer inside and out, while you learn the fundamentals of lean startup strategy. Our next session starts on Saturday, March 16th!

How to start building your web or mobile app if you don't have any technical skills!

Getting started on a tech-enabled product, like a web or mobile app, can seem impossible if you don't have any technical skills. You might be asking yourself, why bother even starting with your idea if you have no clue how actually to make it!

Don't cut yourself short! There are lots of tools and tricks you can use to build a prototype that will help you gather more information about your customers, figure out what part of your product you should focus on making first, and even help recruit a technical co-founder or team members. 

Stephanie sat down on Facebook Live and went through ways in which non-technical founders can get started on building their product even if they have no technical experience. Take a look!

Do you have questions about Preflight?

Do you have questions about Preflight?

A few weeks ago Stephanie and Shay sat down for a conversation about Preflight.

Get to know Shay and her approach to mentorship and programs. She also gives a great overview of what you can expect from our Preflight membership. Shay is currently facilitating Preflight 2 and has a new session of Preflight 1 starting on April 12th. 

Preflight 1 is a great fit if you want to start moving forward with your tech-product idea. You don't need to know how to build a tech product! This session is all about researching and finding proof that your customers actually want your product before you start to build. 

One of the coolest parts of our Preflight membership is that you can join in at any stage of your product development or launch. If you're ready to start talking to investors or you want to map out marketing and sales plans, Preflight 3 is your best option. Over 5-weeks, you'll build out your pitch deck, get lots of feedback, and create 12-week marketing and sales plans to launch in the market or reconnect with your customers.
