EC Workshop: Define the “True North” for your Product

People don't download your app because they want an app, they download it for what it will do for them. Does your app sell tickets or grow a community of fans? Every product has tangibles and intangibles. Defining the core, actual, and augmented characteristics of your product makes the difference in the end-product, as well as increases efficiency and decreases time to launch.

In this workshop, we will talk about finding the true north for your product and communicating that to your team and customers. You will walk out with a good first attempt at this product definition. (It takes a few drafts to get it right; so we won't get it done in our hour together, but you will have the tools to complete it yourself.)

InFlight is a new program that leverages the EC’s full resource network of advisors, curriculum, and community to accelerate the growth and development of early-stage startup companies for a full year. We have 19 teams in the program, and all are based in Nashville.

During this event, each team will do a 1-2 minute pitch and have booths set up where you'll have the opportunity to learn more about their company and connect with their team members. We hope you'll join us!
