Customer Discovery: Idea to Product


Coming up with an idea and wanting to start a business is one of the best days in an entrepreneurs life. Learn what it takes to validate an idea, clarify the value it provides customers, and talk to customers to figure out if it’s useful, whether you can improve, and whether your idea actually solves a problem.
