526 Cynthia Del'Aria: Startup Ninja

How to Leverage Failure to Find Product-Market Fit and the Killer Feature

What makes an app a killer app?

Why do some tech innovations fly … while others do not?

And where can women best excel in a tech field still dominated by men?

Cynthia Del’Aria started coding at age 8, started her first business at age 15, and never looked back, selling three of her own tech businesses. A “startup ninja”, Cynthia now runs the startup incubator Raika Technologies, helping tech entrepreneurs find the “killer feature” and move from idea to scale.

She’s also a board member of A11ow, a media investment company helping to change the game for female founders seeking capital – investing in female-funded, female-owned, and female-run companies and telling the stories of how those women become successful in their ventures.

  • How to avoid the mistakes most tech founders make in the early stages of startup
  • Why its women’s time in tech and how to change the funding game
  • What it takes to iterate towards product-market fit and why tech founders often overlook the needs of their customers
  • How to leverage mistakes with gratitude as #failforward moments
  • “Malicious obedience” and how to avoid it when managing a tech team
  • Why you should never worry about a bigger competitor stealing your idea
  • How to understand the value and valuation of what you’re building
  • The ideal time to bring investment capital into your business
  • Common mistakes founders make when selling their companies
  • Why you should plan the exit from the beginning
