We're back for August and having the super talented Jacqueline Rinehardt of Shuffle (shuffleapp.io) to share stories about taking a concept to product and growing it into a business.
ABOUT THE PRESENTATION
The realities of taking an idea to MVP, to entering the market, and everything in between.
Jacqueline Rinehardt had a different notion of what it meant to “build an app” but quickly learned the realities and challenges of creating not just a technology product but a scalable business. In this presentation, she will share her personal experiences of how she got involved in mobile apps and built a tech company with a non-technical background. Jacqueline will also describe her experiences validating an idea, determining what should be included in a minimum viable product, finding early partners, and learning from all of the challenges and pivots along her journey.
If you are an entrepreneur, intrapreneur, or "someone that may just have an idea", this presentation will leave you with knowing how to define the value of an idea, the definition of success in multiple stages of product development, and how to anticipate challenges before they occur.
Above all, Jacqueline is hoping to inspire you with a realistic view of the challenges ahead.
