Why do some startups succeed and others, some with extraordinary products and vision, fail?
A startup can have an amazing product that is technically superior but, without access to a captive market, success stands on shaky ground. A Go-to-Market (GTM) plan is critical to avoid becoming another startup statistic and this workshop aims to teach you how – methodically – to roll out your product and/or service to the market.
The approach used in this workshop has helped a number of B2B and B2C startups meet their launch commercial ambitions and you will learn the answers to questions such as:
– What is a Go-to-Market orchestration & alignment?
– How do I build a Go-to-Market engine?
– Is my startup marketing or sales intensive and what does this mean for my GTM strategy?
– What is my value proposition, likely market segmentation & target segment?
– Should I adopt a beachhead strategy and what channels will I use if I do?
– How will my plan be executed and promoted?
You will learn about crucial GTM concepts such as Time to Product/Market Fit (TTPMF), Product-Market Fit (PMF), Founder Go-to-Market-Fit and much more.
