Start-ups rock: Concept to beta launch in 9 weeks!
Just before Christmas I had what I thought was a good idea for a new start-up. After scribbling just a few notes I forgot about the idea in favour of mince pies and port….well as much as you can ever forget about an exciting new idea that is.
What happened next was an email conversation that went something like this:
Rob: Hi Craig, what do you think about this idea…..?
Craig: looks good, I think it has legs.
Rob: You in?
This conversation echo’s the way we have worked ever since; efficiently and without doing anything we don’t need to do. A lean start-up approach I think its called ;-)
So we met for a coffee at the end of January to think about how we could make something happen.
Ok so its more like 3 months since that seed of an idea popped into my head but in terms of building this first version we have done it in 9 weeks and this is why building a web start-up is probably the lowest risk business you can start. £23 and a few coffees and we are ready to go!
More about how we did it and the decisions we made along the way in a later post.
Have fun and let us know what you think about sobazzar.
