Startup success stories abound billion‐dollar acquisitions, high‐stake exits, consecutive rounds
of funding. That is unless you track the world of entrepreneurship and startups for a living. Like
we do. Because that is when you see the other side of things. The dose of reality that shatters
the rags‐to‐riches tales that the world has come to see, nay, expect of entrepreneurship. No sir,
that’s far from the complete frame. While those that make it, go on to carve their names in the
books of history, it’s a long journey to startup stardom, and a longer one from there. For a great
idea alone, does not a great business make.
It’s a big mistake to wait to publicly launch the product once it’s perfect. For example, startups spend (or waste) time and money building features which are the least important against the value proposition and delay the Go-To-Market date.
Many points should be considered while you transform any software development process into an Agile process; like team chemistry, team engagement, strong team maturity, communication, trust top management support, continuous learning, and the list is countless. Listed are the most important points to be considered in making Agile successful
It’s surprisingly common that startups don’t carry out enough research to back up the hypothesis around their idea. At times, they completely misunderstand the value proposition on which they build their product. In simple terms, they try to solve a problem which doesn’t exist or can easily be solved with alternative solutions.
We met some really bright & interesting entrepreneurs & product evangelists during the Product Talk we organised on October 12th, 2015 at 9 Devonshire Square, London. With an objective to brainstorm about what happens when you have an idea for a startup, we organised the meet to discuss on the topic ‘Everyone has an idea: What’s the biggest problem we face?’
Given the stereotypes about American competitiveness, it might seem odd to consider embracing failure as one of our greatest assets. However, once you stop and think about it for a moment, it starts to make sense.
You have that Eureka moment when you realise your creative idea has the power to change the world. However, only few of us are able to successfully execute them and that makes all the difference.

Innovify, a product foundry currently working with a number of start-ups, identifies a checklist for founders wishing to outsource their product development.
A well-established corporate has experience ranging from a few year to decades that germinate from within the foundation of a tiny business venture. While a corporate thrives on its experience to chart a new route for entrepreneurial success, a startup would look for alternative, pathbreaking and disruptive ways to climb the ladder. Startups do things differntly. Their way of defining vision, goals, marketing objectives is thoroughly offbeat and that’s what sets them heading towards the pinnacle of success.
