  6. FREEMIUM SUMMIT: Freeing a service to educate a market Creating a category is hard… • You need to invent a lexicon • You need to prove that anybody cares (to partners, investors, your colleagues, yourselves?) • You need to ask somebody for some of their precious time • You need to establish the flow of how the experience should work
