Most startups fail at first. The challenges of achieving product-market fit and putting the right business model in place can be overwhelming, especially for lean startups, making it hard to get it right the first time. Companies that reached billion-dollar valuations, such as YouTube, Pinterest, and Groupon, successfully reinvented themselves after gaining a better understanding of the user interactions around their products. Learning fast from failure — and reimagining your product in order to engage your users in a more valuable way — can help you discover profitable channels for growth.
On April 10, join lean startup expert and Nexus Partners Managing Director Steve Adelman for a comprehensive workshop that will dive into strategies that have enabled startups to successfully transform failures into learning curves. We’ll go over practical methods that you can employ in order to successfully fail, develop your product, and grow fast.
We will discuss:
- How failure plays a role in building and growing your business
- When to pivot and where to pivot: strategy, product, or execution
- Examples of lean startup best practices that you can apply to your growth strategy
The workshop will be followed by Office Hours for members who would like to work with Steve one-on-one.
