Early-adopters: Qualifying & Closing your first customers - Startup Lisboa Members Only

We'll discuss how to identify your target market, and more importantly how to find the early-adopters within that market.

For startups it is essential to do this right. Most companies will not be interested in a new product from a new company, simply because of their natural attitude towards innovation. You need to figure out how to identify those that will adopt your technology first, and focus all your efforts on them.
