Lund, Sweden | Wednesday 21 October 2015
In a room full of entrepreneurs, BootstrapLabs founder Nicolai Wadström shared his thoughts on Silicon Valley unicorns, and the speculation of tech bubbles and overvalued startups. He reminded his audience to focus on value, and the fundamentals of the companies being touted as Unicorns.
Nicolai then turned his attention to the Swedish entrepreneurs who are in the process of building their own startups.
As Nicolai explained, product market fit – finding a good market and a product that can satisfy that market – is one of the keys to success for startups looking to build growth companies.
