Open Beta Session Details
If you’re going to fail with a new product or service, fail fast. The only way to stay ahead of the market is to get your stuff into the hands of testers as quickly as possible. Who cares if it’s not perfect? You don’t need to add that new feature UNLESS your customers tell you it’s necesary. At Open Beta, get the feedback you need on your startup NOW. Quick and dirty presentation [3-5 minutes] followed by live testing and feedback.
RSVP: To participate in Open Beta, email katie@gangplankhq.com.
