‘If you build it they will come’ does not work anymore. Today you must build something that people want but the question remains: how do you do that? Simple: by talking to people, getting feedback from your audience, and testing your idea. Demo Dhaka aims to help participants to showcase their products in order to get feedback, practice demo skill, test MVP, meet potential clients and investors and most importantly to meet with critical early adopters.
You can’t build a great product sitting inside your building. Get out of your building and show it to the world and ask for feedback.
Bangladesh startup ecosystem is growing and at the same time, the number of serious and equally potential startups is growing daily. In 2016, we saw a decent number of funding activities, and we expect 2017 will be a happening year for the startups in Bangladesh. These startups need platforms from where they can get help. That’s why we need platforms like DemoDhaka that offers opportunities to entrepreneurs to reach out to users and potential investors.
