Your Technology is Not Your Product is in One Week!

ENTR Workshop with Peter Ettinger- April 12, 12-1PM

April 6, 2017 8:36 AM

Do you have a great idea or product in mind, but aren’t sure how to turn it into a valuable product? Then join us in the Commons 318 on Wednesday, April 12 from 12-1 pm. You’ll learn how to develop an idea into a scalable product that will reach the needs of your customer segment. We look forward to seeing you!

The challenge for many entrepreneurs is they focus on their technology and oftentimes forget to explain its true value in a way that provides a customer not only inspiration, but permission to make a purchase. In this discussion, we'll focus on how the good idea becomes an even greater product. Just what does it take to make the transition from a technology that is inspiring in its own right to an item that has true value to the right customer segment. And in walking through this offering, our takeaway is to embrace the customer voice in clear concise English with demonstrable value and benefit.
