    • Our story of learning, pivoting, andachieving product/market fit (and a $1M contract)
    • In 2010, we conceptualized theconcept of using a smartphone to replace punch cards
    • Within 3 months, we quicklylaunched an iPhone/Android App that scanned QR Codes
    • We were the earliest in the market with that model
    • LOL...
    • We learned that one person going door-to-door, we could quickly get 70 stores to sign-up in Silicon Valley in 2 months
    • In Mountain View, and Palo Alto, itseemed like we were all over the placeMany tech savvy foodies loved us and some wrote blogposts about us
    • It seemed so promising that we raised around $1M from private angels and TeleNav. We were early. We could get into stores quickly with more foot soldiers. Techusers loved our product. We were excited.
    • But....We also knew there were many problems
    • Problems Our product wasn’t creating disruptive, normeasurable value for the store Only a small % of store users can/will sign up Our product could not record purchaseamount WITHOUT affecting operations Customer Support for these stores were awful Saturating local markets lead to a dead-end
    • Essentially...we were selling the wrong product to the wrong customers
    • Judgement Call:1. Ignore these problems and continue ourmomentum in getting more stores andraise more funding (This is what everyonein the market is doing)2. Go back to the drawing board andactually create a product that actually canbe a market winner
    • Both?Startup Genome Project: #1 reasonstartups fail is premature scalingChanging our model after being inthousands of stores would be a nightmareWe had to decide NOW
    • New Company Thesis:❖ The market will be won by those who tackle the hard problem of selling into chains❖ Domino Effect: large chains are slow adopters but fast followers❖ Large chain traction will trickle down to small stores nationwide❖ Large chains have an entirely different set of requirements (ROI, Data, etc.)
    • We relaunched at the end of 2011 with aMUCH better product that satisfies chain store requirements...
