Jon Butterfield: Premature Growth – Finding market fit before growth.

5 March 18:00 - 20:00


On Thursday 5.3.2020, we will be hosting a founder and co-founder of many companies Jon Butterfield.

The biggest killer of startups is no market. 42% of startups fail because of a failure to find market fit, with the second biggest reason being that they run out of cash. Growth is a huge keyword in the startup world today, with many people considering themselves Growth practitioners, but what does this really mean? In this lecture, we will discuss ways to avoid the misinterpretation of market-fit, define what it means for your business, how to find it, and then what to do with it.
