How breakthrough ideas emerge from small discoveries Creative thinkers practice a set of simple but ingenious experimental methods • failing quickly to learn fast • tapping into the genius of play • engaging in highly immersed observation Free their minds, opening them up to making unexpected connections and perceiving invaluable insights. 17

  19. 19. Often (first-time) entrepreneurs feel that step 1 involves writing a business plan/building a slide deck and getting funded! 19
  20. 20. What is a Startup? A TEMPORARY organisation DESIGNED to SEARCH ……. For REPEATABLE and SCALABLE Business Models Startups are NOT just SMALLER versions of a LARGE Company 20
  22. 22. You have the awesome solution “Your Solution Is Not My Problem” Source: Dave McClure …. to a problem that does not exist. 22
  23. 23. The Problem / Need Statement 23
  24. 24. 24 Finding the Problem is the Hard Part – Kevin Systrom & Mike Krieger (Instagram Co_Founders) Instagram Co-Founder Kevin Systrom believes building solutions for most problems is the easy part; the hard part is finding the right problem to solve. Here he opens up about how he and fellow Co-Founder Mike Krieger identified the problems they wanted to solve around sharing photos through mobile devices. He also reminds entrepreneurs to embrace simple solutions, as they can often delight users and customers.

  27. 27. 27
  28. 28. Key Question: Do I have a problem worth solving? Who has the problem? What is the top problem? How is it solved today? Where do they have the problem or in what context do they have a problem? (milkshake example) When do they have the problem? Why is it a problem? (root cause analysis. Why is the single best word for creating value in a start-up and an established business) - It is not possible to know what the top problem is without knowing where, when and why they have a problem. Also the questions may not be answered in sequence e.g. will we find the problem and the person with the problem at the same time? Identify the Problem 28
  29. 29. Take a stab at defining the solution Build a demo (MVP) Test it with assumed customers Will the solution work? (can the proposed solution create customer value that exceeds the cost to produce and deliver the solution to the customer) Who it the early adopter? Does the pricing model work? Define the Solution 29
  30. 30. Build an MVP Soft launch to early adopters Do they realise the unique value proposition How will you find enough early adopters to support learning? Are you getting paid? Analysis: There needs to be a bit of intuitive thinking around the MVP. We need to ask and then guess how we can create the most unique customer value in the shortest amount of time with the least resources. With a bit of thinking and an equal amount of action we have a chance of appropriating real value in the short term VALIDATE THE QUALITATIVELY Validate Qualitatively 30
  31. 31. Launch your refined product to a larger audience Have you built something people want? How will you reach customers at scale Do you have a viable business? Analysis: A refined product needs to test both qualitatively and quantitatively in order to find out why the refined product creates customers’ value and how large is the market potential? Can this business produce (organically or through investment) enough cash in the short term in order that customers value - cost to produce = profit Validate Quantitavely 31
  33. 33. MVP A Minimum Viable Product (MVP) is “that product which has just those features and no more that allows you to ship a product that early adopters see and, at least some of whom resonate with, pay you money for, and start to give you feedback on” 33
  34. 34. MVP #1 Explainer video Explainer video is a short video that explains what your product does and why people should buy it. A simple, 90 seconds animation is sufficient. e.g. Dropbox How to make an explainer video 34
  35. 35. MVP #2 A Landing Place A landing page is a web page where visitors “land” after clicking a link from an ad, e-mail or another type of a campaign. 35
  36. 36. MVP #2 A Landing Page • Craft your Landing Page • Set up a Google AdWord campaign and drive traffic to your new landing page. Even here you can let the AdWord engine rotate different messages and test what works best on your prospects • Set up Google Analytics. The most important thing to measure is conversions – percent of visitors that sign up (or perform another desired action) • Set up a chat to make it easy for the visitors to raise questions • Set up a service like Qualaroo to survey your visitors 36
  37. 37. MVP #3 Wizard of Oz A “Wizard of Oz” MVP is when you put up a front that looks like a real working product, but you manually carry out product functions. It’s also known as “Flinstoning”. Zappos shoes is the biggest online shoe retailer, with annual sales exceeding $1 billion. In his Lean Startup book, Eric Ries describes how the founder started with a Wizard of Oz product. 37
  38. 38. MVP #4 The Concierge MVP Instead of providing a product, you start with a manual service. But not just any service! The service should consist of exactly the same steps people would go through with your product. 38
  39. 39. MVP #5 Piecemeal MVP This strategy is a blend between the “Wizard of Oz” and “Concierge” approaches. Again, you emulate the steps people would go through using your product – as you envision it. 39
  40. 40. MVP #5 Crowd Funding Sell it before you build it. The basic idea is simple: launch a crowd funding campaign on platforms such as Kickstarter or IndieGoGo. Not only will you validate if customers want to buy your product, but you will also raise money. 40

  45. 45. Traction is a measure of your product’s engagement with its market. Investors care about traction over everything else.- Nivi and Nival, Venture hacks Problem/Solution Fit Product/Market Fit Scale Ideal time to raise money 45

  56. 56. What is a business model? A business model describes the rationale of how an organisation Creates, Delivers and Captures value 56
  57. 57. Why we need a shared language for business models? 57 https://strategyzer.com/academy/cours e/business-models-that-work-and- value-propositions-that-sell/1/1 Note: You may need to license the online learning tool on Strategyzer to view this clip from Osterwalder

  64. 64. Nespresso’s Business Model What is Nespresso’s Business Model? What made them so successful? 6464
  65. 65. Strategy for Startups • Planning before the Plan • Use the Osterwalder Canvas to do two things: – Organise our thinking – Get out of the Building to turn the hypothesis into facts • SEARCH for the Business Model First and then Write it Up (Business Plan) 65
  66. 66. Customer Development Process Post it to the Wall  Create the canvas  Make it visible  Use Yellow Post-It notes with your guesses Get out of the building and test your hypotheses. There are NO FACTS here. Talk to customers, partners, vendors. Design experiments, run tests, get data 66
  67. 67. Customer vs. Product Development • More startups fail from a lack of customers than from a failure of Product Development. • We have all the processes to manage the Engineering Risk • No processes to manage the Customer Risk. 67
  68. 68. Customer Development Manifesto 1. There are No Facts Inside Your Building, So Get Outside. 2. Pair Customer Development with Agile Development 3. Failure is an Integral Part of the Search 4. Make Continuous Iterations and Pivots 5. No Business Plan Survives First Contact with Customers. So Use a Business Model Canvas 68

  71. 71. Hypotheses or Guesses The canvas is a set of hypotheses, i.e. guesses It helps us to organize our thinking! It is not about functional organisation, but about the business The real question is HOW do we change those guesses into FACTS? 71
