It’s the doldrums days of August and lots of people are getting ready to go back to school.
So we figured we should get into the learning mode too.
And who better to school us in the ways of startups than Austin’s Jason Cohen, founder of WP Engine and multiple other startups. Thanks to the great folks at We Are Austin Tech, we’re going to share Cohen’s words of wisdom on the startup scene in Austin. The biggest mistake he sees startup founders make is not surveying their customers before creating their product. It’s so important to talk to customers about what they are interested in and to meet their needs. While creating a cool technology product might impress your friends and family, you’ve got to find out if the market wants or needs that new technology application.
