  • CUSTOMER DEVELOPMENT @sonalpmane Startup Technologist - Microsoft
  • Customer Development?
  • Here’s how I did it!!
  • Focus on Customers and Markets from Day One Find out if your potential customers suffer from a problem before you decide on the solution
  • 1. FAIL FAST 2. BUILD THE MVP 3. ACQUIRE CUSTOMERS  Build it and they will…. Come! They may not!  Heavy spending hit if product launch goes wrong  Hiring and execution is based on hypothesis, not learning  You won’t know you’re wrong until you’re OUT OF BUSINESS
  • Not All Startups Are Alike
  •  Start listening  Test your hypotheses  Truly know your customer  Customer need  Market opportunity
  •  Problem – Solution Fit  Split tests, Rapid deployment, Five Whys  Sales  Marketing  Distribution channels
  • CUSTOMER CREATION  It is a strategy, not a tactic  Start small and grow  Year one objectives  Demand creation  Positioning and product launch  Type of Market  Existing  Resegmented  New
  •  Management  Structure  Mission  Customer need  Market opportunity
