Founders Talk 05 | Getting Product Market Fit - Fundamentals of Scaling Startups

Wednesday, July 22, 2020 | 5pm to 6pm IST

Mr. Sanjay Mehta | Founder & Partner at 100X.VC

Product Market Fit is key for any startup. It is always better for founders to have 1000 users use and love their product/solution than 1 million who use them intermittently. A product that is deeply loved is one that can scale.  Understand the formula startups need to drive their business beyond the startup phase and achieve massive scale, a non-linear growth. Exponential growth requires financial investments, no matter whether you scale up a business or startup. This means that scaling up requires you to engage with Investors. Hear Sanjay Mehta speak on how to develop a Scale Up business plan for your startup.
