Why Most New Digital Products Fail and How to Win
Presented by: Randy Fisher, Partner and Director of Design at DeveloperTown
Over 6 years of working with entrepreneurs and executives to build new digital products, here’s what the team at DeveloperTown has found: Leaders often take unnecessary risks in the first years of a new product that lead to critical missteps, resulting in wasted time, money, and opportunities.
Some of the most glaring and unnecessary risks we see leaders take:
- Building the product before validating the market
- Designing the user experience in a vacuum
- Building too much too soon
We will address them one-by-one, and talk about how you can avoid the traps.
Startup to Start-Giving: What I've Learned from Donating Over a Quarter of a Million Dollars
Presented by: Dan Gigante, Partner and Digital Director at 19 IDEAS
Technology, ‘giving back’ and building something really cool from an idea are all passions that touch me to the core. You and Who, a social t-shirt company that donates $8 from every sale to a different family in need every 2 weeks, was born of my conscious effort to take my every day job and create something that fulfilled my altruistic passions. This talk is meant to inspire others to take their altruistic passions and apply them to their every day jobs.
What I've learned through running my own e-commerce store and the digital marketing needs has been invaluable knowledge and strategies that we've been able to pass on to clients.
