Do entrepreneurs make great product owners?

It depends.

A successful entrepreneur is an individual who has an idea for a product or service that will solve a customer problem or create a perceived gain in value for the customer.

Entrepreneurs understand that their product needs to have a superior vision, purpose, and mission to succeed in competitive markets.

They know that there is value in being first to market and that continuous improvements to the product and/or service is necessary to keep winning opportunities within the marketplace.

In theory, a perfect description of a product owner.

A product owner is thinking about competitive advantage. They are thinking about the improvements to the product that are necessary to delight customers. They are thinking about when the perfect time would be to release that product to the market and how to do that effectively.

In theory, a great description of an entrepreneur.

A product owner course is a great for entrepreneurs. It provides them with the framework and tools that will enable them to articulate their vision and prioritise a backlog of items for product development.

Product Ownership is a great model for aspiring entrepreneurs.

Learning how a product owner works with a development team and a to continuously improve the product and create value for customers, frequently and consistently, is a great asset for any entrepreneur.

Some of the best entrepreneurs in the world are great product owners.

People like Reed Hastings (Netflix), Jeff Bezos (Amazon) and Elon Musk (Tesla) are great examples of individuals who have a great vision for their products and services and effectively communicate that vision, improvements, and continuous development to their teams.
