Worum es bei uns geht
The idea you had while taking a shower is the next BIG thing - a unicorn! Or is it?
It is well known that we fall in love with our ideas too soon and start putting in hard work to just find out a few weeks later that your perception of demand for it was twisted, or that it has been unsuccessfully tried many times before or that the market is too small or whatever it might be so we let the project silently fade away and pursue another thing having wasted the most scarce entrepreneurial resource: time. No matter how convinced we are that the idea we had is the next big thing, we need to conduct a reality check by someone else than our parents or friends to get it verified by unbiased opinions and possibly by experts in the field.
The evening is moderated by either an experienced entrepreneur or by a moderator from the investment world. The Reality Check Meetup was created to gather a group of initiative people who want to get their ideas verified, challenged, enriched or even be joined by co-founders on the toughest part of the journey: the implementation. Before starting on your project, we want to provide an informal setting for anyone to can tell the crowd in a prepared or spontaneous 5 minute elevator pitch about their idea and get valuable feedback from the crowd verifying, challenging, supporting or giving advice to the presenters. What we are looking for is a creative, collaborative, respectful atmosphere, where criticism can be delivered but only in a constructive and valuable way.
Coming to this meetup you can either
a) present your idea to the crowd
b) or join the crowd to hear entrepreneurs pitch and give them valuable feedback
The Reality Check is followed by networking and apero. And maybe this will be the evening where you meet your true co-founder for the awesome idea you had.
