We’re offering two free, 50 min calls a week to founders and product people who want to improve their research projects
I am offering free, 50 min consultations to founders and product people who are kicking off research projects (or feeling gloomy about one they just did).
Like a wise old car mechanic, I draw from experience working with 100s of startups to quickly understand your research challenges and diagnose which screws to tighten!
"Andrew is an amazing critical thinker. His ability to understand our company in a short period was impressive and the insights shared were really valuable."
Clinic Attendee: Founder, Seed Funded Startup
I'm Andrew and I've been doing product research and customer discovery for 15 years (here's my LinkedIn). I've worked with over 30 startup clients, both B2B and B2C and traversing topics including health, education, hospitality, finance, productivity, and led research in two more B2B startups. And I’ve been mentoring 100s of startups around the world for 9 years with Google for Startups, the World Food Programme Innovation Accelerator in Germany and a bunch of corporate accelerators in the UK.
I have honed my ability to quickly understand a team’s business and diagnose their most pressing research needs. Any team that’s been mentored by me can confirm that I can add value in a short time. Take the offer people!
The format is a 5-10 minute grilling so I understand the business/problem, then we work together on an actionable plan, while I share as many relevant tools, templates, books, articles and podcasts as I can muster.
Here's what attendees have asked about so far:
"If success in your job involves understanding the needs of your customers and users, I'd thoroughly recommend having a chat with Andrew. He listened and quickly understood the context, then explained clearly a whole range of different approaches worth considering. Some were complete eye-openers. It was easy to see how a modest investment in some high quality evidence-based research could make a massive difference to the outcome and save a lot of wasted effort based on guesswork"
