Building a WOW Product

Great Companies are Built on Great Products.

The truth is so obvious sometimes we tend to take it for granted. Products lay at the heart of a business and its success. When asked about the importance of great products in a startup, Sam Altman (President, Y Combinator) once said, “At YC, we tell our founders to work on their product, talk to users, exercise, eat, and sleep, and very little else… Until you’ve built a great product, almost nothing else matters.”

This Startup Saturday @ Kochi, we are choosing to do a deep-dive into understanding what makes great products. We’ll try to answer questions such as:

  • What are products? Can software or an app be a product?
  • How do I know if my product solves a need or fits a market segment?
  • How should I build, prototype, launch and market my product?
  • When and how do I scale my business?

Do you want to build a world-class product?

Step in on April 8, 2017 @ Athulya Auditorium, Infopark. Book your tickets below.
