Startup in a dayJun 9 8:20pm
Can you create a tech startup, with all the parts that involves including customer research, application development, company formation and pitch development (slidedeck below) given only 24 hours and a small team?
Yep. That’s exactly what the great team I was a member of did as part of the Startup Cafe at the Wisconsin Entrepreneurs’ Conference. From a kernel of a concept for an app to track what an alumni group is up to (like for an incubator program or similar) to a working application filling a real customer need (we did research with the event attendees) in such a compressed period of time was an interesting mix of high stress, little sleep while still being fun. It was only possible via the new-ish lean startup methodolgy, with the primary focus on moving fast, iterating quickly with customer involvement at the earlier possible stage.
Although initially conceived of as only a conference demonstration project due to the potential customer interest there is a chance of creating a viable business with further work.
Revenue to date: $42. (Someone passed around a hat after the demo.)
