Dr. Ivan Zak, Founder and CEO of Smart Flow
To “cross the chasm” you have to find the customers with the biggest pain point and do anything that will solve it. Then gain reputation in solving that pain point and convert them into evangelists. In order to scale globally, SmartFlow had to listen to the market and follow where customers wanted to see us and then adapt using tools that allow global management.
