Commercialization Reality
@NYUEntrepreneur
(At least) Three Parts to
Building a Successful Startups
1. Advancing the product/technology
2. Beginning to build a team
3. Finding a repeatable business model
u Most focus on #1 and/or #2
u Successful efforts require all three
5
@NYUEntrepreneur
It’s Bigger Than the Revenue Model
u Testing hypotheses makes substantive changes to
biz model before you do science/design
o Define clinical utility
o Who core & tertiary users/buyers/payers are
o Sales & marketing process required for initial
revenues and downstream commercialization
o Data required for future partnerships/collaborations
o Intellectual property risks
o Regulatory pathways
o Reimbursement strategies
u Affects your biological & clinical hypotheses
6
@NYUEntrepreneur
Need to do this before
finishing the science or
building/designing the product

Value Proposition
What Problem Are You Solving?
@NYUEntrepreneur
Value Proposition
describes the benefits
customers can expect
from a bundle of
products and services
@NYUEntrepreneur
Key Questions for Value Prop
u Problem Statement: What is the problem?
u Technology / Market Insight: Why is the
problem so hard to solve?
u Product: How do you solve it today?
u Competition: Who is delivering that solution?
u Clinical utility: What level of improvement
in efficacy/safety/cost/etc. is needed?
u Market Size: How big is this problem?
@NYUEntrepreneur
Customer Segment
Who Cares?
@NYUEntrepreneur
Customer Profile
u Who are they and
why would they
buy?
@NYUEntrepreneur
Define Customer Archetype
u Who are they?
o Position / title / age / sex / role
u How/where do they buy?
o Discretionary budget (name of
budget and amount)
u What matters to them?

@NYUEntrepreneur
So where does my
technology come in?
@NYUEntrepreneur
It’s not about your technology!
22
bit.ly/1MFD3YJ
@NYUEntrepreneur
So where does my
technology come in?
Customers don’t care about technology
They are trying to solve a problem
Customer discovery is about identifying that
problem & exploring how you could solve it
@NYUEntrepreneur
put yourself in
the customers’
shoes
@NYUEntrepreneur
But how?
25
@NYUEntrepreneur
Customer Interviews
(aka Talking to Humans)
Customer Development
26
@NYUEntrepreneur
“You can’t just
ask customers
what they
want and then
try to give that
to them.”
@NYUEntrepreneur
“New ideas come
from watching
something,
talk(ing) to people,
experimenting,
asking questions
and getting out of
the office!”
@NYUEntrepreneur
Talk to Humans!
u GOTB: The #1
lesson of this talk
u In person is best
u You must gain
insight into your
customer & market
u You are doing pattern recognition…
Must have sufficient data points to see
2B. Story
@NYUEntrepreneur
Meet People You Don’t Know
u People you know will be nice and tell
you what you want to hear
u Those interviews are possibly harmful
u Let other teams use people you know
u People you don’t know have no
relationship to protect…Only they will
tell you the truth
