Build a Successful Startup #KeyIdeas

If you really believe that you have something amazing to share with the world (and there is a market for it that will bring you money), you must go for it !!! To help you become a successful entrepreneur, I am pleased to submit to you key insights (the first one is clearly my favorite) from amazing startup founders :

-1- “We must learn what customers really want, not what they say they want or what we think they should want.”

Eric Ries – author of The Lean Startup

-2- “Don’t start a company unless it’s an obsession and something you love. If you have an exit strategy, it’s not an obsession.”

Kevin Systrom, co-founder of Instagram

-4- “The secret to successful hiring is this: look for the people who want to change the world.”

Marc Benioff, founder of Salesforce

-5- “Mistakes will not end your business. If you are nimble and willing to listen to constructive criticism you can excel by learning and evolving.”

Meridith Valiando Rojas, co-founder and CEO of DigiTour Media

-6- “The last 10% it takes to launch something takes as much energy as the first 90%.”

Rob Kalin, co-founder of Etsy

Avis à tous les amateurs de son

 Prizm va rendre vos enceintes intelligentes !

D’ici quelques mois, nous aurons tous un Prizm dans notre salon. Cet objet fabuleux permet de diffuser de la musique sur mesure, adaptée aux goûts de l’utilisateur et au contexte. Il réalise cette prouesse en se connectant aux téléphones des personnes présentes dans la pièce pour diffuser leurs playlists.

L’objet, qui fonctionne en bluetooth, ne se substitue pas aux enceintes, mais sert de relais entre elles et les comptes de streaming musical de l’utilisateur.

La startup Ubithings, exploitant Prizm, fondée par quatre jeunes français (tous âgés de 25 ans) a réussi à lever plus de 160 000 dollars sur la plateforme de crowdfunding américaine Kickstarter.

C’est donc le gros coup de cœur du mois de décembre pour IITK. Découvrez l’interview d’Olivier Roberdet DG d’Ubithings.
