Intercom Chief Strategy Officer Des Traynor knows a lot about different ways to build a company. Some focus on sales, others emphasize marketing, and a few put their technology first. Today, however, Des points out that we’re living in an era of product-first companies – and that shift in strategy has changed the way we do business.
At Nordic Business Forum 2016, Des spoke to his audience about the ingredients needed to successfully build a product-first company. He did this, quite simply, by observing the common traits that all companies of this type exhibit.
Des Traynor’s Recipe for Success
Des observed that all successful product-first companies…
- have a strong vision
- create a product that’s feasible, desirable and viable
- keep their focus
- capture the value they want to create
- measure their business properly
- and are very patient for growth
