YOUR STARTUP SUPERNOVA


What, how, When, Who, Why, Where, & How Much to start your idea, business, and startup


Introduction

  1. The best startup development is based on not "develop and validate," but rather "validate and develop." through MVP style development & strategy.

  2. A startup should be born in bootstrap mode, so its founders will further enhance startup experience, growth, and investment.  

  3. Startups do not need the investment to validate their business model.  

  4. Entrepreneurs should have passion & deep desire in solving a problem and realize that they are the best to provide the solution.  

  5. Investments are great, but before getting stuck in the "develop product - pitch - receive investment - and - be diluted" cycle.

  6. What makes an entrepreneur successful is their ability to continually validate, test business ideas and models and constantly adapt the model to the market.

  7. You can start up your idea within a week or two.

  8. We are here to assist you.

    2. We will challenge your idea and business model, figuring out what is the best approach to your product. This may require starting over from scratch, so don't be afraid: it's all part of the process.

  7. Change to your plan.

    1. It is normal if you change & update your business model over & over again through the life of your business.

    2. About changes:

      1. Remember we are in the age of acceleration, then we have to reinvent ourselves, our plans & ideas every 4 to 5 years.

      2. What is the “age of acceleration” ? You can watch this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WSh2kHa29cE or read  Thomas Friedman’s book, Thank You for Being Late: An Optimist's Guide. How to be a life long learner.

  8. Through this process you want & experience two things;

  1. You want resilience; you want to be able to take a blow because you get disruptive events

  2. You want propulsion; you want to be able to move ahead you do not want to be curled up in a ball.

  1. Build an MVP: We help you to build your virtual MVP in one to two weeks & test your business model hypothesis.

    1. The minimum viable product (MVP) is a product with just enough features to gather validated learning about the product and its continued development.

When to start
