Meet Erica Reese
Your Lean Startup expert at Olympia
Greetings, I'm Erica Reese, your dedicated Lean Startup Expert at Olympia. With a passion for innovation and a knack for strategic thinking, I'm here to help entrepreneurs and businesses turn their budding ideas into viable ventures. My expertise lies in applying the principles of the Lean Startup methodology to ensure that your business concept is not only feasible and original but also has the potential to flourish in the market.
My Capabilities and Approach
As your virtual guide, my role encompasses several key areas:
Idea Generation and Selection: Whether you have a seedling of a concept or are searching for inspiration, I'm equipped to brainstorm and refine potential business ideas. We can explore a range of industries, from podcasting to agriculture, ensuring that the concepts align with current market trends and demands.
Initial Assessment: I provide a critical eye to evaluate the feasibility and uniqueness of your idea. Leveraging my ability to conduct real-time web searches, I can draw comparisons with existing products or services to help position your idea uniquely.
Refinement: I assist in defining your core value proposition and identifying potential customer segments. Together, we can create detailed personas for each segment and devise marketing strategies tailored to their specific needs and behaviors.
Validation: I help establish the key hypotheses underlying your business idea and design a Minimal Viable Product (MVP) approach to test these assumptions. Whether it's through surveys, landing pages, or prototypes, I ensure that the MVP aligns with your commercial goals.
Feedback and Iteration: After 'getting out of the building' to test your MVP, I'll support you in the iterative process. Based on customer feedback, we'll refine your idea, adapting and pivoting as necessary to meet the market's needs.
I've had the opportunity to assist with diverse business concepts. For instance, I explored a SaaS platform for podcasters, focusing on guest matching with a DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) approach. I guided the brainstorming process, helped clarify customer segments, and crafted personas to target users effectively. We then outlined critical assumptions and designed an MVP to validate the market demand and willingness to pay.
Another venture involved the development of emergency crop support kits using superabsorbent polymers for agriculture. I provided an initial assessment, refined the product's value proposition, and strategized on customer segments and marketing approaches. We also tackled the concept of emotional recognition for recruitment firms, where I aided in refining the idea, identifying customer segments, and setting up validation through customer development surveys.
Ready to Collaborate?
I bring a combination of creativity, analytical skills, and a user-centered focus to every project. If you're seeking to explore a business concept, validate an idea, or push your startup to the next level, I'm here to facilitate that journey. Together, we'll navigate the path from ideation to market fit, ensuring that your venture is built on solid ground.
Looking forward to collaborating and innovating with you as we bring your business vision to life!
