NEW SERVICE: Startup Research Package

We’ve packaged up some golden nuggets from our extensive product research consulting experience into a collection of workshops to help startups succeed with their own research projects.

June 10, 2022

Get research right first time!

Startup teams desperately want first-hand contact with their customers, but at the same time they’re terrified of messing it all up by asking leading questions or misinterpreting the findings. 

We’ve found a neat solution which empowers teams to do their own research but uses a plan and templates that we’ve tailored completely to fit their product and customer context. This approach has been honed from years of inhouse and client projects, which include about 25 startups, and mentoring 100s more early stage businesses through accelerators around the world.

We’ve broken our offer down into 3 packages of actionable and fun workshops, with flat pricing to keep things simple.

The format

Diagnosis: The packages involve a diagnosis workshop to fully understand what you’re trying to learn, where you’ve got to and what resources you have available.

Preparation: Then we prepare a custom canvas, populated with the content and frameworks that make most sense for your customers and learning goals.

Execution: In a second workshop we walk you through the bespoke materials and coach you on how to use them effectively.

Optional extras: We can also sit in on your interviews and give you pointers on your questioning technique, for an additional hourly fee.

Who’s this for?

We’ve run these sessions with startups at multiple stages in a wide breadth of B2B and B2C industries. Some are at the idea stage, whilst others already have a live product, with paying customers. Most have received at least a round of funding.
