Annual Event Draws Eager Entrepreneurs Across a Variety of Industries to Ask Questions to Local Experts
TAMPA, FL. (September 16, 2014) – Absolute Marketing Solutions president Alfred Goldberg recently offered his knowledge of mobile strategies to hundreds of entrepreneurs at the second annual Startup Surge, hosted by Tampa Bay WaVE, at the First WaVE Venture Center (400 N. Ashley Drive, second floor, Tampa, FL 33602).
Tabbed as “Speed Mentoring”, Startup Surge gives budding business owners a chance to sit down with local experts for 20-minute one-on-one sessions and receive advice on a number of topics, including idea validation, marketing and raising capital.
Goldberg specifically helped attendees to understand the value of their products through researching mobile users and the context for which they utilize applications. He also illustrated the importance of customer development aligning with product development and gave tips on how to apply the principle.
“I’m excited to help mobile entrepreneurs take steps in the right direction because customer development and its role in creating great products is critical,” said Goldberg. “We often miss the mark by developing a product and then bringing in a team to market it. However, it’s through researching the customer, finding out what they need and producing applications to solve those needs that success can be achieved.”
“Whenever we can have Alfred stop by and lend his expertise to an event at Tampa Bay WaVE it’s definitely a great thing”, said Linda Olson, president of Tampa Bay WaVE. “His knowledge of mobile technology and entrepreneurship makes him ideal person to speak with when trying to get your startup off the ground, as many of the people visiting Startup Surge are trying to do.”
