Paul Graham gave a good startup checklist in his 2005 essay “How to Start a Startup.” Being an entrepreneur and creating the best startup has to do with the problem your startup is solving. One thing to remember is that getting rich is hard, but doable. Are you ready to put in the work?
The Startup Checklist
Lay Out the Building Blocks
– To truly build a startup, the entrepreneur must be one step ahead of everybody else and live in the future. Your job is to foresee the problems that could arise and come up with a solution for it. Write down your thoughts. Get ideas from people. When the right one comes along, you’ll know and you should see how people respond.
Get Some Help
– No man is an island. To get the startup going, you are going to need some help with the financial side of things. You’ll also need another eye to keep things sane. This is the point where you join pitch competitions, attend meetups to get advice, and put all of that to good use.
Feedback for Success
– What people say about your product will really define how well you present that product. Graham said to keep growing your business in the next four years. This does not define if your startup was a success or not. Rather, it is up to you. Sell your company. Add to it. Bring investors in. For the startup entrepreneur, the process is a cycle, not a checklist.
