Do Pricing Professionals Make Ideal Entrepreneurs?
I recently saw an ad by MIT that caught my eye for their Entrepreneurship Bootcamp class. I watched a video on it and the curriculum reminded me of the skill set of a pricing professional. 5 of their 6 bullet points were key areas in our profession: Creativity, Strategy, Marketing, Sales and Finance. It got me asking myself the question: would pricing professionals make the ideal entrepreneur?
I believe the answer is yes. Entrepreneurs need to wear a lot of different hats and pricing professionals work with or even work in almost every group within a company. I think more so than any other group in the organization we understand all the other team’s roles. In addition, pricing professionals can solve some of the hardest parts that new entrepreneurs face which is monetization, finances and competitive pressure.
