Acapella - Shifting our identity and exciting GTM confusions

Acapella - Shifting our identity and exciting GTM confusions
By Shashikiran Rao • Issue #11 • View online
Hi there,
This week at Acapella was about adopting a new identity. Three months back, when we started our journey, we identified ourselves as wanting to build and solve a problem. Today, the MVP is only a few weeks away, and we identify ourselves as people who have already built it and on our way to solve the problem.

😎 This Week's Update
Business Update
  • With the product almost ready, we are doubling down our efforts to understand the business side of it. We are thrilled about the journey and are getting to talk to some really exciting people about it.
  • We are deep in the process of figuring the right partner to learn from and go-to-market with (like Techstars, Antler, and other community networks).
  • Thanks to one of our advisors, we have established contact with a few managing directors at Techstars and looking forward to joining their July cohort.
Product Update
  • We have built a product release roadmap for our team to outline all minor and major activities leading to the launch of the product.
  • Our tech and product team is testing and re-testing, making updates to the product as you read this.
  • We are looking for a few more early adopters for our beta launch. If you or someone you know would be a good fit, please write to us.
Partner Update
We wanted to test the hypotheses and get our hands dirty, so we partnered up with Draper Startup House and Foundership Accelerator to run 30-day micro-accelerator cohorts. They just finished their first cohort today. A small win, and lots to look forward to.
