Once upon a time, I was very passionate about creating a better platform for writers of Nepalese origin. I pitched the idea at a Startup Weekend event, met my team members there and then eventually registered a company.
Reflecting on my startup journey, I can share some learnings.
-Move fast with your product/service idea. Develop the product or at least a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) before doing too much marketing.
-Seek help in areas that is not your domain expertise.
-Research and understand the challenges in the industry or the market you are entering.
-Understand the market size of your product/service.
-Collaborate where possible.
