Outlier On Air | Interviewing Founders, Disruptors, & Mavens

"It's only theory until you have proof that your customer agrees with it." - Curtis Howe

Alright startups, grab your pencil and a few sticky notes because it's time to make a business canvas. That's right, making a business plan is probably a waste of your time. This podcast is a valuable listen for anyone who is in the beginning phases of their business and anyone looking for more information on accelerators. Curtis Howe talks us through the differences between a business plan and a business canvas.

The real world application of the content that Curtis shares creates a valuable listen for any startup.
