Q&A: Optimizing For Product-Market Fit | Rahul Vohra, Superhuman

Rahul Vohra, CEO/Founder, Superhuman

We had a fantastic Q&A session with Rahul Vohra of Superhuman last week.

Optimizing for Product-Market Fit | Free Online Hangout with Rahul Vohra

Q&A with Rahul Vohra, 9th January, 12.30pm ET

Did you know that you can measure Product-Market Fit?

Not only that, you can optimize for it. When building Superhuman (the world’s fastest email experience), Rahul Vohra and his team built a Product-Market Fit Engine – a way to measure and optimize for PMF.

In his talk at Business of Software Conference USA 2018, Rahul laid out the framework they used to improve Superhuman’s Product-Market Fit. The talk got an incredible response at #BoS2018, with many attendees deciding to implement the process at their own companies.

Join us at 12:30pm on 9th January 2019 for an online Q&A with Rahul Vohra about The Product-Market Fit Engine.

Building Operating Cadence With Remote Teams | Wade Foster, Zapier | BoS Europe 2018

Wade Foster, CEO & Co-Founder, Zapier

Wade Foster and his co-founder started Zapier (it rhymes with ‘happier’) back in 2011 during a hackathon. Now, the company has over 160 employees and no office. Zapier is a fully-remote company, and has no intention of changing that. Here, Wade shares his processes for running a fully remote organization – how Zapier goes about hiring and onboarding their employees, how they run meetings, and how they work to continuously improve their culture.

Wade’s talk is followed by a mammoth Q&A – full of insights from someone who lives and breathes remote work. Make sure you stay for the whole video.
