Crossing the chasm

There is such a thing as startup puberty and it occurs when your product starts to gather momentum. A startup may be so busy working on getting to this stage that they are caught off guard and may not be ready for the change. The most important changes for a product:

  • You are no longer your customer. Once you hit product market-fit, you need more data as you can no longer reasonably represent all your customers.
  • You have the ability to test much more. At this point, you can start optimizing because you're pulling enough users or customers to correlate product tweaks with behavior.
