I have recently asked around for feedback on my idea och the silver coated handle bars and poles for public transports. Two people helped me out, one female 26-year-old and one male 23-year-old.
Both liked the idea very much and underlined that it would definitely make the public environment more healthy. But the male thought that it would be difficult to pinpoint the customer. Who would buy it, he said. It is a valuable piece of input since a lot of people wants it, but who would take the bill? So, to pursue my idea further, it requires revising.
This has been an interesting course, quite the contrary to the common “feeding”, where you simply get fed with information. I like it!
We visited SUP46 on Regeringsgatan in Stockholm this evening to listen to what others had to say and perhaps to get some feedback on our idea.
It was a cosy feeling inside, we were only about 10 people there and evidently a lot of attendees had some IT-related ideas.
The event was called “How to start a Startup” and was a seminar held by two young entrepreneurs.
Their most important message was to have an idea about trying to make a change. It was important that the idea was both something you really believed in and could put all your effort into making it real.
You could really tell some similarities to some of the course litterature by Guy Kawasaki.
SUP46 is a bit like a community which you can join and then get access to meeting rooms and have conferences. A really nice idea! You should check them out on www.sup46.com
