Creating a startup at 60mph
I read an interesting article on Entrepreneur.com about a project called StartupBus.com where a group of entrepreneurs get together on a bus trip for 48 hours and create and prototype a start up business.
Having worked as a developer for so long, I like this approach. I’ve never been a fan of the long drawn out planning phase, generating pages of requirements, etc. Don’t get me wrong, for many projects, that is a must. I just don’t like it.
I like the agile approach of taking an idea, prototyping, releasing and refining.
As a UX guy, I like the concept of creating a product and releasing it to market and letting your users provide feedback. In doing that, you give your users a chance to build the product. They provide feedback, you make changes and release them. That way you keep your user happy the whole time, that is, if you listen.
I’ve gone a little off topic from the original article so you should jump over and check it out. It’s called “Creating a startup at 60 MPH”.
After you check it out, come back and let me know what you think about it or what I had to say.Tweet
