This Wednesday at 6pm we welcome Barry Lieberman to the CSUF Startup Incubator in Irvine to talk about the many lessons he has learned in growing businesses from a variety of industries. Attendance is free, register now, (you will have to pay for parking if you don’t already have a parking pass) and below is some more information about this important event.
There is nothing worse for us at the CSUF Startup Incubator then seeing entrepreneurs come in with fully made products that they can’t seem to figure out how to sell. It’s a tough situation, it really is, but the best solution that we can give these entrepreneurs is to restart with the most important question an entrepreneur should concern himself with: What does the customer want?
Sometimes, entrepreneurs and executives forget this simple question and will focus their company’s limited resources on products and services that their customers do not want. This is a bad spot to be in and while the best solution is to keep the customers’ wants at the forefront of your strategy all the time there is still hope for those entrepreneurs who fall astray of this.
Our speaker, Barry Lieberman, has started businesses and turned around existing businesses all with a focus on discerning who his customers are, what they want, and, most importantly, why they make the decisions that they make. In this talk at the CSUF Startup Incubator, Barry will delve into the strategies that he has used over the last couple of decades as a successful entrepreneur and turnaround specialist. These strategies will be useful to entrepreneurs of all kinds, whether you are just starting out or you have created a product that you cannot find a product-market fit for we think that this talk can significantly help you.
We hope to see you there!
