|Artichoke||Mark Wittman||great job incorporating feedback and responding. really needed and you delivered. Cell tower of the future!!!! I GET IT NOW. Good tag line. I don't need to understand all the details. Just say, "we going to bring you more wifi with the cell tower of the future." what's the business model, get to that faster. Now who are you going to talk to? What do you want them to tell you? I like how you're boiling down a huge problem in a comlicated big dog industry into some value props that are starting to look like startup business models. You could maybe also talk to PAt Romano, the CEO of ChargePoint who did a couple telecom startups. He's now out of that business, but had some things to say to a class I was in about how hard it is to do business in the telecom industry.||1/22/2013|
|Artichoke||Russell Patton||Nice way to get us interested at the beginning relating last time to this time. Make sure you don't take too long to get to why the mobile provider cares. Lower prices for consumers? Doesn't really seem to be a huge concern for them. Do they really want to make it cheap for you to consume data (maybe, but make sure to say why). Nice emphasis on the key changes (value propositions) to the BMC. Interesting to see what the current planning tools look like. It seems like companies would have a high interest in having good tools now. Do they not?||1/22/2013|
|Artichoke||Marc Manara||Good description of technology and your role within it. Maybe a little bit too much time on the background before giving us the update (for this class). I'm a little confused about how you plan to narrow down the value propositions that you listed -- what will you be doing this week?||1/22/2013|
|Artichoke||Kerem Alper||THis is great; I wish we had it last week so that this week we would focus on what you've done over the week||1/22/2013|
|PykaPack||Katerina Opocenska||- Presentation (slides) nicely done|
- Good improvisation (the bad slide)
- Only TAM on slides, what about Served market and Target market?
|PykaPack||Saul Carlin||Really helpful to start with the recap from last week. Good explanation of the current & future technical context that you're working in, but I still don't know what *you're* doing. Good that you showed exactly who you spoke with and gave us a sense of their relevance to the project, but who said what? How do they segment out and how do the segments relate to the very different value propositions that you identified? Are these value pops shared by all customers or are different customers seeking different value props? How did your canvas reflect this?||1/22/2013|
|PykaPack||Collin Wallace||I like the doodles|
- Do the cell providers care about saving the end customer money?
- Many of the cell providers build/maintain their own cell units
|PykaPack||Haley Robison||The drawings are helpful - and accessible|
Future cell tower - where are you in the value stream?
Where are you guys? I'm not quite sure WHAT you are doing and where
Big mkt size - what are your aquisition and deployment costs? How will you attract and retain customers? Who are your customers?
So what are your next steps?
|kaavio||Mike Shore||-Great intro and opening slides! Keep up the energy. |
-Nice definition of market, but would like to see more specifics on your customer segment
-You have very different value propositions, make sure you collect enough data to (in)validate them
|kaavio||Ivo Parashkevov||+ Great summary, was very helpful|
+ Very clear articulation of value prop
- Good TAM build-up but did not follow the Target Market logic
|kaavio||Lukasz Strozek||• Good recap – thank you|
• Also a good call to clarify what you're doing – you've reflected on what people in the audience may have been struggling with
• SAM is missing
|SurvRev||Theresa Johnson||-Who can you sell these to? - What's the status quo? What happens if you don't build this product?||1/22/2013|
|SurvRev||Z Laraki||Great idea to simplify for the general public - great exposition of the problem and the value you will be offering - great slides!||1/22/2013|
|SurvRev||Kylan Lundeen||Great progression of how the industry works (the food chain) and then describing how/where you fit in. Well done. Clean up the logos on the slides. Just choose one iconic company and use their logo. I got distracted with all the providers in the food chain. Pick one and go so I can better understand who they are in the chain.||1/22/2013|
|SurvRev||Maryanna Quigless||-Good use of context from last week|
'-Thank you for spending extra time this week on context, I had no idea what you are talking about before. Good job Kostya!!!
'-Mkt sizing- will there be room in the market for you? differentiation from existing
'-Tech- do you have a sense for how you will build this/how much it will cost? I'm still confused as to how you are better than existing, is it the case that you are excess capacity that is a "backup"/ "support" to existing? Is it just that your towers can be anywhere?
|MailMate||Gil||(1) I loved the actoon versions of the slides. it makes the context a lot clearer. (2) The slide Spectrum X Technology X Number of cells is great! It really conveys your idea. It should be he first or second slide!||1/22/2013|
|MailMate||Emily||You did a great job of incorporating Lisa's recommendations. While you started simply, you lost me in jargon by slide 5.||1/22/2013|
|MailMate||Roi||Good market definition and recap. I am not sure I got the #1 value proposition and how is it different than what everyone else is doing in that space? As for #2-#4, they definitely have unique specific angle, and requires further customer dev and thinking. Good luck ! :)||1/22/2013|
|Orchard View||Mithun Sheth||Good presentation. Great improvement relative to last time. Would like to hear more from the network element providers.||1/22/2013|
|Orchard View||Arne H||Very insightful analysis. Passionate presentation.||1/22/2013|
|Orchard View||Soumya Mohan||Great slides. Does making the cell tower compact,ergonomic etc solve the problem? Like how you are trying to explore multiple value propositions||1/22/2013|
|Orchard View||Beyang Liu||1/22/2013|
|VaiVocabulary||Ashray||Good thing to put recap as the first slide, loved the flow of your presentation||1/22/2013|
|VaiVocabulary||Rachana||Great explanation of the technology.. tells a story. Like your market study.||1/22/2013|
|VaiVocabulary||Vaibhav||Simple but communicative drawings in slides. curious about how will you persue new value propositions||1/22/2013|
|VaiVocabulary||Praneet||Great explanation. This was SO much more clearer than last time. Not clear about who pays, equipment providers as in Nokia or alcatel lucent. Compelling presentation, cheers Konstantin||1/22/2013|
|Fiercely||Ruchi||Clear elevator pitch, drawings in slides are very helpful and engaging. Use of pictures in the slides is good||1/22/2013|
|Fiercely||Clara||So charming. I love doodles, and self-deprecation :) You clearly took the feedback from last time, and you manage to communicate technical information in an accessible and engaging way||1/22/2013|
|Fiercely||Nicholas||30 word elevator pitch not yet clear. slides thereafter are awesome! great hook. i like your face kostya! very, very well explained what the painpoint is through using the pictures and photos. I GET IT now! I like crazy ideas and thinking out of the box||1/22/2013|
|TEAL||Etosha Cave||clear presentation, but I am still missing why this isn't being done by current companies. even though those towers are compact they still emit lots of radiation(?). ARe you going to have permiting issues with posting these towers in densely populated areas?||1/22/2013|
|TEAL||Tiffany Abdullahi||Really liked the "why do users care" slide and the slide discussing limitations in current providers||1/22/2013|
|TEAL||Lillian Tsay||Love the abundance of photos, drawings and graphics. Very helpful and engaging, I still don't understand what exactly you're doing though :(||1/22/2013|
|TEAL||Alessandra Gomez-Cuetara||Loved they address the issue last week of the concept being vague/hard to grasp. Very effective and creative powerpoint deck. However still needan even more simple/consice way of explaining||1/22/2013|
