Path to Startup Success: Sell-Design-Build vs. Design-Build-Sell
May 9, 2017
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
The buzz: “I would love to momentarily pause time while people line up on my doorstep waiting to pay me hard cash for a product that doesn’t even exist. It’s worth a shot, right?” [Naresh Jain, infoq.com). You’re a startup with fantastic ideas you KNOW will take your industry by storm. Wow! Will you sell the vision before spending to design and build – or design and build before you sell and risk market rejection – or switch between the two? Be strong and remember Thomas Edison’s words: “I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.” The experts speak. Colleen Hardwick, PlaceSpeak: “Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it” (Goethe). Fouard ElNaggar, Sapho: “Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth” (Mike Tyson). Luisa Silva, SAP: “If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself” (Henry Ford). Join us for Path to Startup Success: Sell-Design-Build vs. Design-Build-Sell.
