21 - Matthew Cushen on product market fit: what it is, how you get it and how you know you have it

Product market fit is a much discussed, and much misunderstood topic, in venture capital. Matthew Cushen from Worth Capital recently wrote a great blog article on the topic, so we though we'd get him on to speak about it.

We chat about what product market fit actually is and how you get it in practice. We also discuss how the company knows they have it and how an investor knows that too. Matthew brings lots of great examples from his portfolio, both good and bad. We also talk a little about coronavirus and distinguishing between short-term and long-term effects.
