Product is the top priority for pretty much every startup company, no matter what stage they are at. “Build a product users actually want” is common advice. Implementing it, however, can prove to be challenging (as many of you probably know.)
Early stage companies sometimes lose direction, and some never ship. At a later stage, product roadmaps tend to get complex, and it’s easy to move too fast, losing sight of users and their most pressing needs. No, building in healthcare indeed is no easy feat. The high stakes – we’re dealing with people’s health after all – and regulation only add to the many challenges product leaders in our field tend to face.
“Move fast and break things” simply isn’t good advice when it comes to a field like women’s health. So what’s the right way to build, launch, and scale? Let’s figure it out together!
To help product leaders answer some of their most pressing questions, we are excited today to announce another AMA (Ask me anything) Session! This time we are joined by Stephanie Adams, Head of Product at Lightmatter.
