What is Product / Market Fit?
Product/market fit is a term that defines a very specific milestone in a company’s lifecycle. Hitting product/market fit is when the company is ready to sell the product and scale the solution for many users who all share the same need. Product/market fit is what creates the foundation for a self-sustaining, scaled business.
