It was hosted by <a href="https://www.linkedin.com/in/digitalwoman/">Nelly Yusupova</a>, a CTO with over 18 years experience, leading companies to technical excellence. She is a startup tech advisor, outsourced CTO, and the creator of <a href="https://bit.ly/39yEWLT">TechSpeak for Entrepreneurs</a>. The stated goal of the webinar was to learn:</p> <ul> <li>Where to find a tech cofounder or CTO</li> <li>How to build your tech network so you have a better chance of finding a tech cofounder or CTO</li> <li>How to evaluate if someone would make a great CTO or tech co-founder</li> <li>The strategy for building your MVP without a technical co-founder or CTO so you can attract them to your company</li> </ul> <p>Overall, the webinar was worthwhile. She did share useful perspectives on the stated topics. She also pitched her online master class. As she explained, the class covers ten modules: </p> <ul> <li>Module 1: Validate &amp; Refine the Idea</li> <li>Module 2: Build an Interactive Prototype</li> <li>Module 3: Create Technical Specifications</li> <li>Module 4: Pick The Right Tools &amp; Technologies</li> <li>Module 5: Determine the Price and Budget &amp; Define Your MVP</li> <li>Module 6: Hire a Tech Team</li> <li>Module 7: Design Your MVP</li> <li>Module 8: Project Manage The Coding of the MVP</li> <li>Module 9: Hosting, Security, and Scaling Techniques</li> <li>Module 10: Refine product based on data</li> </ul> <p>It was great to walk through this and understand her suggested approach to building a team and a minimum viable product (MVP), even if you're not technical, and in the process "earn" a technical cofounder/CTO. As she completed the overview of her masterclass, I was really happy to conclude that the journey of GreatAlbum so far has already reached Module 8 with our <a href="/blog/private-beta-launched">Private Beta Launch</a> and is currently working on both Module 8 and 9 items as we stabilize and enhance the product, accept more users into the Private Beta and prepare for a Public Beta.</p> <p>I'm there is still lots I could learn from masterclass, but for now I'm happy just to receive validation that we're on a good course. I'll continue to focus on optimizing the team, cultivating user engagement and pitching our vision to advisors and potential investors!</p></div> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><a title="View user profile." href="/author/erik" lang="" about="/author/erik" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="" class="username">Erik</a></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Wed, 12/16/2020 - 01:35</span> <div class="field field--name-field-tags field--type-entity-reference field--label-above clearfix"> <h3 class="field__label">Tags</h3> <ul class='links field__items'> <li><a href="/tag/mvp" hreflang="en">MVP</a></li> <li><a href="/tag/cto" hreflang="en">CTO</a></li> </ul> </div> <section class="field field--name-field-comments field--type-comment field--label-above comment-wrapper"> <h2 class='title comment-form__title'>Add new comment</h2> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderForm" arguments="0=node&amp;1=60&amp;2=field_comments&amp;3=comment" token="3oM1W6fh8EI2uThgB8UErmTjZANREN2KhYgHsT2bK-s"></drupal-render-placeholder> </section> Wed, 16 Dec 2020 01:35:28 +0000 Erik 60 at https://greatalbum.net
