Are you curious about 10 startup ideas turned into real companies? If yes, you are in the right place. Startups solve problems. Great startups solve big problems that are shared by many. For the last six months, I have been interviewing London’s startups and their founders on their business ideas and how they turn that into realities. You will see a compilation of ten of those ideas. Now, while you are watching them remember and think about what the problem is and if you were the founder how the solution could be different. Enjoy!
Watch the vignette of 10 startup ideas turned into real companies:
Creativity is great for finding solutions but it is also great for finding problems. You might just be inventing a problem no one has. So, remember to rely on market research for figuring out what the problems people share are and then rely on creativity for finding the solutions to those.
Any founder out there will tell you the best way to learn is actually experiencing it. You might fail but that’s okay. In one of the businesses I have launched and failed, I learned three key lessons that I knew but it was just a high definition explanation for me to experience that. The first one was the importance of timing. This is crucial. The second one was the product – market – founder fit. It needs to fit in with your own reality of the situation. It might be a good idea but maybe not a good idea for you to implement. The last one was to differentiate what your customers want and what you think they need. It is an important point and these I could only learn by experiencing and failing.
So, what are you waiting for? Go out there, create something, build something. You might fail but that’s okay!
