Evolving an idea into a product

Submitted Feb 6, 2015

I hope to share how lean startup principles can help a startup validate product ideas before diving full fledged into product creation.


When we started experimenting with the Lean Startup way of trying uncover problems faced by our target group, we found our idea of a product coming directly from the customers. This talk is a sneak peek into how we did this, and how we got our first customer even before we had a product and a glimpse into our journey of shaping this idea into a product.
