StartSLC Lean Workshop Q&A Series Part III: Idea Generation
Question: How do I cultivate product ideas?
I chose to answer this question next because just last week, I was at an event at Startup Ogden with a number of entrepreneurs and startup co-founders, where we discussed this exact topic.
The format of this event was an un-conference, where attendees discussed topics that they really cared about and that impacted them, including “How do I come up with product ideas?”

When discussing the topic of generating startup or product ideas, we tend to over-complicate the process.
My answer to this question is pretty straightforward and simple. Ready?
