Attending the IEEE Sensors 2016 Conference in Orlando, Florida was not only a great team building activity, but also an opportunity to prepare for the National Science Foundation Innovation-Corps Program (NSF I-Corps). The NSF I-Corps Program requires a minimum of 100 customer interviews within our market to understand pain points and learn value propositions that can be offered to potential customers.
We had a blast at the conference and met incredible people who are well established within our industry. Generally, associations are a great place to learn more about the industry you are entering in. Great place to discover best practices, trends, and learn who the key players are within the field. This information will be important will explaining to potential customers who we are and why we should exist.
