POSTPONED: Startup Secrets: Building Products Into Companies

Tonight's Startup Secrets Workshop "Building Products Into Companies" has been postponed, as Michael Skok is ill, and unable to present this evening.

We will follow up with details about a rescheduled date in the near future.
Startup Secrets: Building Products Into Companies

You’ve figured out your value prop, you’ve got a great product under development. Now what? How can you develop a roadmap to build a company? VCs often qualify deals as being a “feature” a “product” or a “company.” Which do you have and how will you get where you want to go? During this session we’ll discuss how to think about designing your product as a foundational element of your business. Think beyond UX and Architecture to Whole Product, Ecosystems, and Strategic Partners. Formulate how to design your go to market strategy and business model into your product with a modular architecture, distinctive packaging and a frictionless approach.

The Startup Secrets series at the i-lab are presented by Michael Skok, an entrepreneur of over 20 years turned venture capitalist for the last decade. Startup Secrets provides a framework for entrepreneurs and innovators to think through key steps that could accelerate their success in starting a business.
