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!

Many teams are currently undertaking customer interviews! More insights next week
