Startup Stories Ep 3.
Danny Hui - Sameview
Sameview, is a technology based start-up that aims to improve care coordination for families caring for a person with a disability.
Danny found it really hard to get any traction working on the project part time whilst balancing his sons care commitments and it wasn't until he committed a full time effort to it that he actually got any progress.
Watch or listen to all the episodes;
Try and spend zero dollars validating things.
Test your ideas with people on paper or non functioning designs. Really push that phase out as much as you can until you get some confidence.
Funding is hard.
There isn't much funding out there for early stage/pre revenue startups so you really have to work hard at things like grants and maybe crowdfunding, and funding it yourself of course.
Learn from your mistakes.
Our first MVP was pretty feature laden, there were lots of great things but maybe we didn't need them all at that time. Once we learnt those lessons we pulled it right back to what our users were saying was the most important thing to them.
Try to derive some success as you go.
I think it's important not to see success as a goal on the horizon. For me it's the individual stories we get back from customers. Any time we get to be out there talking about the issues we are trying to solve. All of those are little wins.
