(a) Getting to know about The Wisdom behind The Start-Up
- What would be your 3 main advice that you would offer to entrepreneurs who want to start up today?
1) Find something you are truly excited about, a business idea that provides a solution to you and at least thousands around the world.
2) Define how you are going to be better, stronger different than others in your vertical – measure yourself up against the competition with a plan to be on top.
3) Don’t be afraid to tell people about your idea, because before you exert the time and effort into it (because it takes a hell of a lot of time and resources to do it) get the feedback, welcome the challenges that people propose about your business idea and use that to your advantage and go for it.
- If you have a wishlist, what would you want Governments or the Private Sectors to do, to assist businesses like yours? Just any wish and why?
Government grants allocated to tech communication and productivity businesses. I’d want a global effort to make online communication truly secure, available for the world (I love Google’s Project Loon for example). Having a strong collaborative network in offering productivity through our email platform to large student groups, small to large businesses, partnerships with local ISP’s.
Because I believe in our strong vision to be the de facto world-wide best email client for Windows that delivers speed, productivity, an awesome user experience and a highly secure means for both personal and business communication.
- Any last remarks to close your ‘The Start-Up Entrepreneur Speaks’ series for now?
Working on a startup is the biggest roller coaster ride you’ll ever experience, there are a ton of uncertainties and challenges. It is probably one of the hardest things to do, but if you love building something from nothing then you will embrace those moments of struggle and actually find it very rewarding and fun. I think more people should pursue entrepreneurship.
