One of our primary goals in 2011 is to provide ATDC members with more educational and networking opportunities. An examples of the latter are our expanded CEO roundtables, the recently announced Entrepreneurs Night, and expanded Startup Circles. Today we are announcing the first in a series of educational programs that will be of great interest to technology startups.
Customer Connect is a unique concentrated five week program for technologist/founders of concept stage startups to help them begin interacting with customers early in the development of their company. Customer Connect utilizes coaching and peer groups to provide personalized learning for technology entrepreneurs. Program participants will develop an action plan to engage with customers, a positioning statement, market sizing data, and a product development plan.
The curriculum is a five week long program that takes place on Tuesday evenings from 5:00 – 7:00PM. Customer Connect will be offered five times over the course of 2011. The first session kicks off on January 18th and the participants have been identified. The next session starts March 1st and you can apply here to participate.
