“You need to ask yourself what are we trying to support that people are trying to get done?” – Jim Kalbach
“As markets mature, the market will naturally find unmet needs and what you want to do as an innovator is you want to find it before everybody else finds it.” – Jim Kalbach
“What you want to find are needs that people have, but needs that people have that are important and unsatisfied. Because they are unsatisfied means nobody else in the market found them.” – Jim Kalbach
