Don’t Think Too Big

Alfred Lin, Sequoia Capital
In conversation with: Ravi Belani, Stanford University

Sequoia Capital partner Alfred Lin advises early-stage founders to focus on understanding their initial set of customers, rather than seeking a huge TAM (total accessible market). Companies should be focused on powerful customer-product fit even if the niche seems small, he finds, and can then adjust the product for the next adjacent market.
