Our goal is to help you build the simplest form of your solution to put in front of customers, not to sell but to test. This program takes place over six weeks of two-hour live, online sessions. After talking with potential customers, you’ve discovered that people need what you’re trying to build. You’re ready to build a prototype or MVP (minimum viable product) to start testing.
