Too often, startups focus on shiny new services and technologies but they fail to think about their customers. Ideas are great, but if customers won’t buy what you’re selling – your startup is on a fast-track to nowhere. And what if you can’t retain your customers? Without managing your customer relationships effectively, your startup will fail to thrive.

This panel is dedicated to thinking through a customer’s wants, needs, pain-points, and the customer journey prior to launching. Leaders from customer-centric companies will share their tips, tricks, and the biggest lessons that they’ve learned along the way.
