It’s official, we have been accepted into Ship2b acceleration program which mission is to help entrepreneurs with a social enterprise style business, take their ideas and make them a reality through business.
Ship2b accelerator is modeled after “lean startup,” a method for developing businesses and products that were first proposed in 2008 by Eric Ries. While in the program, our team was introduced to the concept of Customer Discovery and selling your product before you actually physically create them. This was where our idea of a startup changed.
The basic idea is that you go and ask people about what they want, instead of telling them about what you think they want. Anyone can have an idea for a business that the population would love to have. But then they start telling people about this product and no one wants it. So why does this matter so much? Well for us, we feel it will change the way we will develop our products and services 🙂 So stay tuned
