What is a #Startup?
Exponential Growth Revenue / users Standard company Start Up Time
High chances of failure (or repeated failures)
The team is everything Matters more than the idea (?)
Brain over Money
Needs money to live before earning revenues Personal funds & unemployment insurance Love Money (friends, family…) Bootstraping Fundraising (seed, Business Angels, VCs, IPO)
Startupers want to change the world!
Not necessarily digital or tech Producing energy from seaweeds
Often, founders have a problem …that impacts their life so much that they want to solve it! And then they realize it could be a business EYODF! (Eat Your Own Dog Food) – be your 1st users!
In the form of a product / service / platform And they build a solution to the problem
In a startup, you don't know what you need to build! But they face a huge challenge
…will be discovered on the way! Step by step, thanks to a lot of work and (recommended) methodologies What needs to be built
Then it’s all about making choices
And finding solutions / solving problems
