What are you offering your customers?

You probably think the answer to this question is obvious. But are you able to communicate this in a way that others can understand?

Last week’s Entrepreneurship 101 lecture focused on creating a crisp and concise Value Proposition for your startup.

According to lecturer Joe Wilson, a value proposition is a statement that tells others why your product is unique in a way that they can understand. It should include the following information:

  • What your product/service is
  • The target customer
  • The value you provide to them

Check out Joe’s slide deck to see examples of good and bad value propositions.
