Week 2: Lightning Lab Auckland

70 days until Demo Day!

Week 2 has seen the teams plunge further into customer development! We’ve also been lucky to hear from speakers like Duncan Ledwith (Market Validation guru), Robbie Paul (ICE Angels), Murray Thom (Legend) and Heath Sadlier (Optimal Experience/PWC).

Below is a great slide deck from Steve Blank – who invented the customer development methodology we are also familiar with!

LL Alumni:

The team at Glassjar are pitching at Y-combinator demo day this week – this is on the back of recently launching their payment app into the US market.  It now covers a much broader payment space, going from helping students manage their finances to all people managing shared costs in a range of situations – from dining out in a restaurant to going on holiday together.
