Last 2 months have been the most hallucinating times of my life and all my effort (and time) have been spent in some important (big) steps for me – a new venture, a new country and, for sure, a different life.
Interesting posto. 7 key points to guide a discussion about a new startup idea.
"One of my favorite exercises is brainstorming startup ideas with other entrepreneurs. You can gain a lot of value from a fresh perspective. When “pitched an idea” for brainstorming or feedback I tend to go through the same 7 key points and questions each time. That tends to spur strong discussion, new ideas and new opportunities."
7 Key Points for Brainstorming Startup Ideas
By Ben Yoskovitz, Instigator Blog
Good point a very usefull advice. Do follow-up or you'll be reminded as the guy that doesn't follow-up (and your idea or company will be forgotten).
"I was with IBM in the early PC days when Bill worked with us to provide PC DOS and other software. He was relentless in his focus on getting a project done, and he always assigned himself the toughest tasks. At the same time, he was always pushing the limits of our business relationship with new ideas.
That’s the bar you should aspire to. I can think of several related aspects of starting and running a business where follow-up, or lack of it, can make or break your startup.
Everyone likes to be pursued, rather than the pursuer. There’s a reason that many people say that the fortune is in the follow up. When you follow up properly with people, your reputation will benefit, your business will benefit, and eventually your pocketbook will benefit as well."
