Abstract: Creating great products is hard, but my work with the same co-founding team across eleven years and three startups has convinced me that while a powerful product or platform idea is the seed, relentless focus on the total user experience is a cornerstone of any success you may have and must be a cultural value. This focus includes: empathy, transparency, and personality. Let’s talk about how to build these into your next startup.
