Even if you tried following Mark Zuckerberg’s super secret checklist for how to create a online yearbook social network at Harvard today, you’d be laughed off campus before you’d build the next Facebook. Every startup is different. Every market is different. And context matters.
Startup ReBooted is a short-term relaunching service, where I help you think through, re-validate, and relaunch your shit. Pronto.
Organize your validation process. De-risk your startup. Focus on what rocks your startup right now. With Startup ReBooted, you learn and execute, in order to rapidly validate the business model around your product.
You only need to move quickly with respect to the few things that matter (not everything under the sun).
In fact, it usually boils down to one bottleneck. Once we identify that bottleneck together, I help you construct tests to clear it. Without that, you’ll fall prey to your pulsating sense of urgency, high energy levels, and ability to deliver by working on meaningless trivia.
If you apply for Startup ReBooted, there are 3 possible business outcomes at this point:
1. you’ll have enough validation to approach accelerators and angels for additional funding (after having identified a fantastic opportunity and having a product that already works)
2. you will create and execute a learning roadmap. It will be prioritized, to get you to that point as quickly as possible, as well as experience applying lean tools like customer development
3. you will have proven that your idea won’t work in its current form using data, giving you the option to abandon or pivot (without having wasted loads of money or time)
And you won’t be drifting…and embarrassed that you’re not growing…
Even though I didn’t realize it at that time I think my pitching skills doubled in effectiveness. I have been complimented so many times since then, and I think our work together was behind it.
