The second month of Techstars is over. By now, everyone knows each other, everyone has improved their network substantially and have new processes in place that make their company do more faster.

Time for product, traction, and investment. Here’s what we’ve learned.

Product Evolution

We have made several improvements to our product, and we’ve been told we’re not that good at letting the world know how we’re doing. We’ve tried to improve this in the last few weeks, but we’re still finalizing our communications strategy.

During this month, we’ve made several improvements to our recommendations, launched public watchlists (featured in Chatbots Life) and added user actions, so that you can share insights or create an email right when you see it.

The Power of the Mentor Network

After Mentor Madness, we were super lucky to find awesome mentors that believe in our vision and have been helping us every week. They have already made a big impact on our business.

Here’s a picture of our first Mentor Board Meeting:

Investment

We’re three weeks away from Demo Day (by the way, tickets are available here), so the focus right now is on getting our message right. This is a lifetime skill we’re developing, that won’t end at demo day – we’ll continue to use it with investors, clients, hires and even to communicate internally.

The Entire Team in the US

After 11 weeks of waiting, all four Attentive members that were supposed to travel to Boulder are here! We made it work despite a 7-hour difference and still doing a super intense acceleration program. Here’s the amazing reception from the whole crew:

I’m already feeling super thankful for the way we’ve all evolved as professionals, and how the vision for Attentive became clearer, easier to understand and with many more supporters.

I’ll report back after Demo Day with more findings!
