WNT Ventures – Problem-Market Fit: Finding Your Initial Target Market

Are you developing NZ’s next unicorn? Join us on the Hardware Series, six interactive workshops to help you launch your start-up

We know that building a hardware business is hard. It is unusual for hardware founding teams to have the full set of skills required to be able to support them to bring their product from concept all the way to market. We have planned six key workshops that will help give the foundational building blocks for any budding hardware entrepreneur.

There are many highs and lows that are encountered on this journey. It’s important to understand that a lot of the things keeping you up at night as a Hardware Entrepreneur, have kept people up at night before! This series is here to answer some of the questions you have but also to give you partners and networks that you can reach out to and ask questions so that you don’t have to go on this journey alone.

In each session, we will be bringing together industry experts and experienced entrepreneurs to help give you a toolkit to help you through some of the sleepless nights that building a company can bring.

Whether you are already on your hardware startup journey and have questions about certain areas or just thinking about embarking on that startup journey there will be useful insights, networks, and case studies that you will get from the series.

The first session focuses on Product – Market Fit.

We know that the world is already full of lots of products. Let’s make sure the product you are building is solving a real problem and that you know who your early adopter is going to be, so you can ensure every one of your products makes it into the right hands.

Our Industry Experts and Founders for the session are:

  • Niamh Given, Investment Manager at WNT Ventures
  • Matt Miller, Founder of BrakeAce

This session is brought to you by WNT Ventures with support from Kiwinet & Callaghan Innovation.
