Event description

Businesses often begin with a great idea for a new product or service but then struggle making that idea a reality. Otherwise promising business can flounder in the practical details:
• getting the requirements right,
• building the team needed to build the product,
• choosing the right external help,
• making things, at scale,
• supporting the product once it’s out there.

Whether you’re developing a physical product or the software needed to provide a service, these things can trip you up.

Bring along your product development plans, and frustrations, for one hour of complementary advice from an expert. Discuss the specifics of your development and the pain points that you experience, and learn ways to overcome them.
