** Ciao Website!

** Education

** D&I Wednesday

Join Wharton Entrepreneurship and Professor Karl Ulrich, Vice Dean of Innovation for: Technology Push, Market Pull, and the Search for Product-Market Fit

When: 10/1, 12- 1:30pm Where: JMHH 265

Innovation opportunities are sometimes born of technological possibility and sometimes of emergent customer needs. The first challenge for most new ventures is to find product-market fit; the matching of a solution and a need. This workshop outlines the three key questions that every start-up must answer in order to create value, and illustrates methods for answering those questions. The insights are valuable both for those entrepreneurs pursuing opportunities based on a new technology and for those attempting to find a solution for a need they have identified.
