Presentation From Startup Week
In every new venture there are activities where entrepreneurs can get bogged down. For product based ventures there are some common “sand pits” worth noting. Whether as a new company or a new product offering of an existing company these apply. In this article “Keep Your Startup Out Of The Sand” we speak to some of these Sand Pits and talk about tactics for navigating through them instead of getting stuck.
Article topics for avoiding the sand include the following:
- Setting The Stage
- Hey, That’s My Idea !!
- Google Maps Won’t Get You There
- Screaming From The Mountain Tops
- Who Makes This Stuff?
- Pulling It All Together
Sometimes these areas are ignored, or just not dealt with in healthy ways. Sometimes slogging through them is exhausting and frustrating and can drain the life blood of enthusiasm. While it’s best to avoid the traps, it’s also really important to identify them and get yourself out too. Build your resources instead, and plan for success.
Even though the path may be entirely new to you, it’s not entirely new. Avoiding some of the common sand traps will streamline your path to product success — and that’s the goal. This presentation is about a few of the common sand traps entrepreneurs often find themselves in. We’ll talk about how to identify the traps, how to decide if you’re in one, and most importantly, how to get out of them or avoid them all together. Click the link at #1 above for starters.
Startup Week Presentation
There were a lot of great presentations at Startup Week this year. For entrepreneurs, or folks thinking about striking out on their own, this week is worth the time. Tons of great information. I just wish I could have attended them all. Keep your eyes on it, because it will happen again each year.
Hopefully, our Startup Week presentation and this resulting article we can help a few entrepreneurs too. It’s a big task to work through the beginnings of a new venture to launch a new and creative product. We hope this helps.
Good luck, and let us know if there are things we can help you with on your journey. While Synthesis does provide services for product based ventures, we are also willing to give a little advice. Enjoy.
