“Welcome to the GrowthX Market Acceleration Program.”
We’re open sourcing our entire proven market acceleration program (MXP) for helping founders find product-market fit.
We made this decision so that we can reach more founders and help them win.
Our industry of innovation capital has the power to drive both private value creation and sustainable, positive societal transformation. At GrowthX, we strive to not only direct capital, but also expertise, to create shared value by accelerating the pace of innovation through market development training.
If you dedicate the time and stick with us throughout the series, complete the exercises, use the worksheets and participate with our global community of innovators, you will find the truth about whether your idea is also a profitable business, and you’ll find that truth without waisting your valuable time and money.
Filling the Void
It’s easy to find podcasts and videos extolling the importance of finding product-market fit. You can also spend all day reading blog posts about the MVP process and how hard it is to get a meeting with a VC without first having revenue.
And, certainly, if you’re looking to learn how to build products and raise money, coding bootcamps and accelerators have become as ubiquitous as Starbucks.
What’s missing is a practical list of to-dos for each step to determine how (if at all) your product fits with a market, and then onwards to profitable revenue.
We’ve turned the art of the start into a science, and it’s never been more important.
Welcome to the Age of Applied Technology
In the past, technology was expensive and complex and product talent was sparse. So, the biggest risk for startups was in the product itself.
But now, the costs and complexity of technology have been greatly reduced, and product talent is plentiful.
The risk has shifted away from product development and toward market development. However, the way startups function has not.
Most founders are incredibly product-focused. They pour time, energy, and money almost exclusively into product development. Many founders lack the knowledge and experience to efficiently and effectively bring a product to market.
Accelerators exacerbate this problem by focusing their curriculum on helping founders build their product and raise money, rather than helping founders market their product and make money.
About 70% of funded startups fail, and not because they couldn’t get the product, service, or technology to work.
As CBInsights reports, they failed because they couldn’t get the market to adopt it.
Don’t become a CBInsights statistic!
