Hi Joe! I completely agree with your view + learned about the figures as I did not have them.
One month ago, I started to build https://growthseeker.io as a disrupting incubator model to provide opportunities to early-stage makers and founders worldwide with a community approach. It's another way to solve the problem you are describing that I'm (still) testing.
Warren Schirtzinger, the Chasm framework's father, is one of my partners and told me a couple of weeks ago to talk with you about our idea and learn from your experience, way longer than ours...and this article it's the perfect Trigger!
If you are interested in talking, shoot me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, we'd love to jump on a call with you. Even we can join forces to solve the problem, we never know :)
Thanks for sharing your thoughts and figures in the article!
