    You may have a wonderful new product, but why do you need a target market? Won’t everyone want to use it? You may find that your target customers have specific requirements that could affect your product specifications. Keynote speaker Stephen Metzger has developed and launched a host of new products over the years. Come to The Venture Forum’s November 11 meeting at Clark University and learn about the delicate balance between product inspiration and customer demand.
