Startup How To
Learn how to pick a commercially viable startup idea, protect it and successfully launch a venture fundable startup. Most startups fail because founders make common and avoidable mistakes at the beginning. Scientific startup founders are often struggling with “technology in search of a market” without realizing it. Engineering founders often confuse their customers with too many features instead of focusing on a product-market fit. Startups can’t do everything and they are not the only way to commercialize technology. But, there is a way to commercialize technology through a startup that maximizes chances for success. This talk will provide an overview of how the startup ecosystem works, where startup founders fit-in within it and the key elements of successfully creating and launching a startup learned by hard earned experience.
