What comes first: Product or revenue?

It is the startup equivalent of the chicken/egg question

Well, this picture of eggs with googly eyes was too creepy to not share with everyone. (image)

THIS IS NOT REALLY A NEW STORY

WHY DOES THIS HAPPEN?

Btw, just to remove any confusion, let me clarify that I am talking about a tech product here.

WHY? WHY SHOULD WE OPERATE IN THIS FASHION?

The second you introduce revenue into your product-market fit equation, that is where the whole notion of chicken and egg gets into the picture.

WHAT ABOUT THE INDUSTRY SEGMENT? SHOULD THAT NOT DICTATE THE PRODUCT MARKET FIT?

WE ARE A PRODUCT COMPANY, NOT A SERVICES COMPANY

That’s it for today, see you tomorrow….hopefully!
