Loic Le Meur: i miei dieci punti per una start-up

Segnalazione breve ed immediata dei dieci punti che ogni imprenditore dovrebbe osservare quando pensa di creare una start-up web secondo Loic Le Meur, imprenditore tra i più attivi nel panorama web europeo. Cosi attivo che ha deciso di andare a San Francisco, dato che l’Europa ha i problemi strutturali e ideologici che tutti sappiamo.

Lo seguo spesso e devo dire che condivido il 95% di quello che dice:

? Don’t wait for a revolutionary idea. It will never happen. Just focus on a simple, exciting, empty space and execute as fast as possible

? Share your idea. The more you share, the more you get advice and the more you learn. Meet and talk to your competitors.

? Build a community. Use blogging and social software to make sure people hear about you.

? Listen to your community. Answer questions and build your product with their feedback.

? Gather a great team. Select those with very different skills from you. Look for people who are better than you.

? Be the first to recognise a problem. Everyone makes mistakes. Address the issue in public, learn about and correct it.

? Don’t spend time on market research. Launch test versions as early as possible. Keep improving the product in the open.

? Don’t obsess over spreadsheet business plans. They are not going to turn out as you predict, in any case.

? Don’t plan a big marketing effort. It’s much more important and powerful that your community loves the product.

? Don’t focus on getting rich. Focus on your users. Money is a consequence of success, not a goal.

Come sempre, se non masticate l’inglese, è il momento di un bel corso 🙂
