Living Locally - Working Globally Message Board › Rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated.....
Tel Aviv-Yafo, IL
Hi Living Locally - Working Globally member,
You may have received a mail saying that I stepped down from organizing this group. Well I can happily announce that it was more a case of my credit card stepping down (expiring) rather than me.
However, I must admit that I have slacked a little (if not to say - a lot) in organizing Meetups, and I had a good reason for that:
I have been busy creating an absolute break through start-up www.powtoon.com, and we are about to go LIVE....
Using the living locally, working globally principles my team and I have created an incredible company
I would be happy to hold a meetup on the subject how we:
1.) Identified a fantastic market
2.) Validated that there are real buyers for the product before writing the first line of code
3.) Raised money
4.) Assembled and motivated an incredible team - using global workforce arbitrage
5.) Created an incredible buzz around the product http://www.powtoon.com/blog/powtoon-love-board/
6.) Created an incredible product with massive user involvement from the start
7.) Are going LIVE within a month...
All this happened in less than 6 months!!!!!
The principles used to build this company are 100% transferable - and I have used them, and will use them again and again....
The only thing I am missing for this Meetup is a good venue in Tel Aviv, so I if someone knows a nice place that's big enough and nice enough for like 60-70 people and is willing to take the organizational challenge upon him/herself I would be happy to do this meetup towards mid/end MAY.
Please let me know what you think?
