About the talk:
Shaker was a real rollercoaster experience - it went from instant success (winning TechCrunch Disrupt 2011) to a big slap in the face, to a pivot, and eventually success. During this exciting journey we have learnt so much, about our product, about our audience and most importantly - about ourselves. It made us realise that we were not learning, no matter how hard we thought we were... This led to a set of changes - in working methods and processes, in the way we perceive our product and in our
general mindset. Did it work? Let’s keep it our little teaser..
