Hands On Startup Help (3 hours)

  • April 2, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Limited to (25) a HANDS on approach to helping with your startup. This is a limited in Size Meetup. I'm gathering (3) mentors besides myself that break people into small groups and get dirty with specific help.


Helping with tools like Git, Basecamp, Mind-mapping, Flow Charts. Talking about fund raising through books. Helping with Executive summaries and tools to raise money. Talking about websites that support programmers off shore. And a LOT more that others have knowledge of besides me. Answering hard questions. Helping with road maps of where your going to go. If you come to the Pitch, you'll see some of this happening but with very little time its really hard to give the hard advice and help needed.

If you came to our last event, be sure and show up with MORE information and More progress from our last event.

    It was a good discussion yesterday. Ishita for idea that you proposed here is the evidence that I found today through one of my friend.

    [Tehelka Blog] Quashing popular myths, the Census revealed that slum residents had all the basic amenities like drinking water and electricity and even facilities like mobile phones, internet and private vehicles. The only service missing is sanitation. http://blog.tehelka.com/the-census-and-the-economic-status-of-the-slum-dweller

    I remember some of your were skeptic when I said there is at least one major fire somewhere in the world. Well yesterday there was this: http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/europe/fire-engulfs-unoccupied-40-story-apartment-building-in-russian-region-of-chechnya/2013/04/03/bca14a78-9c86-11e2-9219-51eb8387e8f1_story.html

    <<< the second page of my post. I had to split it up because of the character limit.

    I don't really (yet) need a customer for his business; I need a customer to verify my product, to teach me about customer needs, and to prove "traction". My product is very high-end and not cheap; my first customers would be partners and payment could be different then dollars.

    The product again is: software anti-tamper. I have spent several days writing a nice web site: www.whitehawksoftware.com

    Any help is appreciated. Its not just to get the company of the ground; I believe software-tamper proofing is important for the industry, Not everybody will need my product, but my customers will be enabled to provide more and better software services to their customers...

    It was a great meeting, I hope everybody got some value. We just didn't have time to say everything, most likely we will never have that much time.

    Let me be blunt and describe what I really need:

    Fans Making traction and buzz.
    Software gurus So I don't have to program
    everything myself.
    Marketing genies My biggest weak point.
    A nice customer Absolutely crucial for proving that
    the business is viable.
    Angel investors So I can hire a team Basically everything... I have tried several approaches for bootstrapping. I start to believe having a customer is the best way to continue.

    >>> Because of the character limit, I split this into two messages

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
