About the talk
Do you know why most startups fail to grow at the pace they'd like to? Let me give you a hint - it's not because they don't have enough features, and it's unlikely that the product is not good enough. After working with dozens of founders, growth & product teams over the past 6 years, I've found two primary reasons why startups fail at hitting their goals:
- The wrong thing is built for the wrong audience at the wrong time.
- There is no clear strategy or point of view on how to drive users through the entire product journey.
In this talk, I'll walk you through a tried and true process that you can use to leverage faster growth. We'll examine how to look at product development from a growth led mindset, and will outline the key steps you need to take to ensure that your users stick around.
As part of the talk, you'll be provided with worksheets that you can use for your own company so you can start growing faster, now.
