Chris Sorensen and Matt Brocchini are the creators of the Quantitative Product-Market Fit methodology and founders of Q‑PMF.com.
We met in Silicon Valley in 2012 when we were both Entrepreneurs in Residence in the same startup accelerator program. After many lively discussions about how disruption happens, why some companies thrive and others don’t, and how innovation and market share are connected, we realized that our rather different experiences as entrepreneurs and executives had lead us to many of the same conclusions.
We originally formulated the Q-PMF concepts in order to help the startups we were advising get to high product-market fit as quickly as possible. We wanted a framework that promoted clarity, insight, and shared understanding among the team members, and that helped them develop practical and effective innovation strategies. And what do you know, it worked!
To spread the ideas more broadly, we’ve added seminars to our consulting practice. We’re also working on a book about Quantitative Product-Market Fit (see the Beta version here – we’d love your feedback).
