And then there are videos, quotes. To inspire. And finally tools. To get stuff done. We want you to have access to the same, because, in the end, sharing is caring. So go ahead and explore our growing hand-picked collection.

The Idea Introduction Pattern, by Venture Capitalist Geoff Moore:
“For [target customers]
Who are dissatisfied with [the current offerings in the market].
My idea/product is a [new idea or product category]
That provides [key problem/solution features].
Unlike [the competing product].
My idea/product is [describe key features].”
