Do you have any customers out there?

"Entrepreneurs often spend far too long perfecting their product and not enough time testing it with the market" – so says James Caan. He believes that instead of only spending 10% of the development time talking to customers, it should be more like 50%. By speaking to the market, businesses could solve problems sooner, assess whether the product will actually sell in quantity and maximise the profit potential. This will enhance their chance of raising finance, and being successful when they do launch.

This networking event aims to explore the journey faced by innovative businesses when identifying the optimum market segment for new products or services.

Our speakers will look at how to measure the size, and assess the growth potential,of your chosen market, even when your product/service is unique. So, when you next pitch your idea, you will be able to answer the questions – "How many potential customers are out there? What evidence have I got to support this? How can I find this information?"
