Follow your intuition, look at the data, fail often
A weekly blog post about an insider glance of a 3-months journey into a startup accelerator.
We are finishing week 2 of Springboard. We are in the “shape” phase: the objective is to refine the value proposition of our business idea.
Are we building something unique? Which problem/need are we actually solving/fullfilling?
The best way to figure this out is to confront smart and experienced people with our vision. This is what we have been doing for the last 10 days in what looks like a speed-dating for startups: 20 min with a mentor, 10-12 mentors a day. Mentors range from experienced startup entrepreneurs, VC’s, angels, industry specialists, etc. We have now talked to 90 different people. Here is some of the comments:
- “Aaah the Belgian team, I’ve heard about you guys; I really like what you are doing!”
