This summer, we have been busy preparing a new way of testing SightPlus: the self demo kit! With a set of information and peer support, we believe that YOU can embrace this new technology and try SightPlus, yourself! We will be testing this programme with a couple of cohorts before deciding how to expand it! If you want to get involved, sign-up here http://givevision.net/signup
We are looking for a couple of badass team members to boost our experiments in customer development and our research about the new generation of SightPlus!
Please share this post to anyone that could be interested and a good fit!
