Customer Discovery Checklist
The goal of this checklist is to help entrepreneurs work through the process of identifying customer personas – answering the questions, “Does my product or service actually solve a problem or pain of a potential user?” and “is my product or service marginally or dramatically better than perceived direct and indirect competition if my product or service reaches the market?”
