Achieving product-market fit (PMF) is arguably the #1 strategic objective and biggest challenge for budding founders. When you reach this critical milestone, you—and any investors you hope to attract—know that there’s consistent, enthusiastic demand for your product.
Everyone defines PMF differently, and that fact alone makes finding yours a real challenge. This one critical achievement determines the future growth and profitability of your startup. That’s why we’re excited to have David Thacker, the general partner at Greylock Partners, at businessupdates.org Early Stage on April 20 in Boston, Massachusetts.
During his session, aptly titled “How to Find Product-Market Fit,” Thacker will share the fundamentals, explain the processes involved, and address the challenges. Given his extensive experience building during a recession, he will likely elaborate on why PMF is even more important during an economic headwind.
You have questions, which is why we believe Thacker is the right person to help you understand and find the product market now – when you need it most.
