Keynote Speaker Bob Dorf
Co-Author of The Startup Owner's Manual will be the keynote speaker at the Ideas Are Worthless Conference in New York. In March, 2012, along with Steve Blank, Bob published The Startup Ownerâ€™s Manual: a step-by-step guide to Building a Great Company, two years in nearly-fulltime research and development. The 500-page, painstakingly detailed guide is much more than an update of Blankâ€™s groundbreaking Four Steps, with parallel Customer Development pathways for companies in the web and mobile channels, as well as traditional physical goods and enterprise software startups, and web and channel marketing tutorials.
