In my role as an Expert-in-Residence for Seedcamp, one of the main objectives of my job is to advise our companies on ‘Product’ thinking. It’s core to achieving Product-Market-Fit, and as with all our programmes at Seedcamp, we try to demystify the many art forms it takes to build great companies. In 20 years of ‘doing product’, I’ve been lucky enough to learn from some great folks and see the industry develop tremendously. Hopefully, some of these articles can be useful to your current or next venture.
