Howie Liu, Airtable
In conversation with: Ravi Belani, Stanford University

Airtable co-founder and CEO Howie Liu explains how different types of startup ideas demand different types of minimum viable products (MVPs). For lower-stakes consumer and social products, Liu observes, a quick, minimal MVP is generally best. However, when you’re building business products users must trust with valuable data and important workflows, a more fleshed-out MVP is required.
