I was honored to keynote Tolpagorni’s annual Market Insights conference:
What: Market Insights Conference
Where: Stockholm, Sweden
When: 13/14 November
Hosts: ProductManagement.SE (Tolpagorni) Two-page event summary
As part of the program, I ran a workshop on early validation of product ideas. (Heavy debts to Lean Startup/LeanUX and Luke Hohmann’s Innovation Games.) We pushed attendees out of their comfort zones to call prospects for reactions to quick concepts.
I also presented this slightly overblown view of Silicon Valley’s network effects and tech culture. Goal: drive discussion about what can be borrowed to other tech centers like Stockholm, and what resources/attitudes are harder to copy.
My thanks to the Tolpagorni team for a wonderful week of joint client work, open events and formal workshops.
