Many startups fail for the simple reason that founders build a product based on what they want, not on what customers actually want. DISCOVER is an applied education program that teaches entrepreneurs how to interview customers to learn their frustrations, aspirations, and motivations for buying products and services. Participants will leave the course having a better understanding of their customers and can pivot their business to make it more likely to succeed.
