Startups aren't just for college kids and garages anymore. Whether you are building an product at night and on weekends or you are a CEO trying to figure out how to compete at the speed of the competition, startups & innovation are more popular now than ever.
This session focuses on how to launch a startup. It will include how you find a problem, build an iterative MVP, influence and validate customer problem and validate a market. At a high-level, this process should be the same in startups and corporate enterprises, but in practice, it isn't. Companies of all sizes are trying to be more innovative than ever; the goal of this session is to talk honestly about how it is, how it could be, why it's that way and what you can do about it.
