.Shows what cust want but you shouldn’t change everything based on customers.
.Not sure I understand this question.
.This question makes no sense. If you’re asking if I think it’s important to receive feedback, then I say “yes”. If you’re asking if I agree with not asking for feedback, then no, I don’t agree with not asking. If you’re asking if I think this question is confusing, my answer is “YES”. 🙂
.I don’t get it 🙂
.I don’t think making easy is the important point, rather making each step of learning approachable and doable.
.We’re finding what more we could take away / add from our services.
.With not customers there is no business.
.It’s extremely important if it is still effective when made easy.
.Feedback for me is really hard to get, we have to beg people to help us in our early stages when we don’t know how to communicate our product very well. If this event can make feedback easier to get this is very need

.Startup community has helpful resources but may distract you from your business
.So, so helpful. Has informed a lot of our initial pivots.
.Having a peer group for customer development ideas is really important and one of the main cust dev day advantages I think.
.This is extremely important to us
.I’ve found the startup community a very inviting and encouraging group, that not only is willing to share, but help out as well.
.Always good to have someone to bounce ideas off of with similar experience.
.Community building is really important, but this event is not specific for it.

.Early adopters are likely to be your evangelists
.A startup initially is just in search of a business model. That is what we want!
.Yes, it’s wonderful when early adopters come to you.
.It’s very important to get early-adopters but we don’t have too many of them….
.Early Adopters have helped us identify problems with our buiness/services
.Strategies for getting early adopters is helpful. This varies a lot by product so the group can be helpful here.
.These are the users that will give you honest feedback and expand your understanding of the markets needs.
.This is extremely important. Outside of early warm leads, gaining early adopters is a huge task!
.It will be very good, but we need to know how to achieve early adopter by ourselves

.It is important to move fast, but should not compare yourself to others
.Comparisons can be misleading depending on the context and type of startup
.This would be interesting to compare with other incubators and coworking places here in San Diego and the country.
.This is I think is very important. people need to measure way more than they do and I think they need help with this.
.Different ideas/businesses/products can vary in success by stage. Focussing too much on what others are doing can lead to straying for your intended vision or strategy.
.It’s nice to be able to compare, but every product is so different with different needs that it’s not always relevant. The most benefit that comes from comparisons are ideas that can be gained.
.It is not bad compare ourselves with others. Just not so essential for a startup to survive.
