BIZ Insights: Tej Dhawan discusses product development (Video)
Business Innovation Zone in Des Moines, led by Mike Colwell, holds an educational luncheon for entrepreneurs in Central Iowa. Titled "Business Insights and Networking Luncheon Series," each event features a speaker from the Des Moines community with either expertise or thought leadership in an area that's applicable to people working on building high growth and scalable businesses.
In May, Tej Dhawan, a principal of StartupCity Des Moines and co-founder of Pikuzone CEO, brought a change in format to the event, holding an hour-long Q&A session instead of delivering a rehearsed presentation.
The Business Innovation Zone recently released the video (below) and published a thorough recap of Dhawan's responses, which touch on the following topics.
- Jim Clifton's book "The Coming Job Wars"
- Encouraging entrepreneurship at an early age
- Transitioning from consulting to product development
- Commercialization strategies
- The role of customer feedback in product strategy
- Facing failure
