  • Pioneers and entrepreneurs are usually 'push-market' driven inside out, i.e. they are more focused on their 'products/service' offerings and what these offerings do, how they are different from competitive offerings and what excellence areas exist within these offerings ,,,, !!!

    It is more of a 'solution' seeking a 'problem' to fix or deal with. It gets proposed in this 'push' sale mode 'inside-out' without even knowing what the customer 'pain and gain issues' are and what 'priorities/mandates/pressures' the customer/market is facing and trying to deal with !

    I don't blame the pioneers/entrepreneurs for being this way, it is what they are expected to be anyway, so no big surprise really. I would suggest instead that the 'incubator/mentor/coach' to fill in the gap and look at things outside-in as the target customers/markets would d when presented with such proposals. They can be of great help to the pioneers/entrepreneurs by making sure effort/energy/creativity/money is being spent on 'things which matter most' to the target customers / markets, and this will ensure financial success once the offerings are made ready without much hassle trying to convince the customers/markets of the value of these offerings.
