Citi Accelerator TLV - Kiriat Atidim 8, Tel Aviv,
When and how an entrepreneur should validate her ideas? When should you go to your prospects? What you should tell them? And why, with all due respect, they should hear you?
How you select the right features to develop, the right way of presenting them? How you can speak the right language and offer the correct price and payment options? And how to avoid wasting too much precious time on dealing with items that are later found to be unimportant?
Well, most startups fail not because they have a bad idea but because there is no real need for their product. These startups fail to understand their market, to learn the needs of their potential customers, and to estimate the business opportunity associated with their products.
