During this segment of the training workshop, founders and team members of the startups gained insights into the psychological aspects of handling finances. The session aimed to help them understand how to shape their customers’ mindsets, ultimately leading to increased product awareness. The workshop also emphasized the importance of adopting a simplified marketing approach and reinforcing the validation of Problem-Solution-Market Fit assumptions.
Participants were challenged to become adaptive, critical thinkers with a business-oriented mindset as Mr. Comandante delved into various topics, including Money Management, the Power of Mindset and Habits, Structures for Financial Freedom, Marketing Strategies, Frameworks for Selling, and Sales.
