A Startup Diary

At BigPocket, we are a group of entrepreneurs who want to share our experiences in building our start-up. Our idea is to create a product that will help man and women, between the age of 25 to 35, to help them have a better grocery shopping experience.

You, like me want to save money and want some help when buying. With the changes in the economy, and the creation of new technologies the supermarket industry is changing, and we want to be part of that change. At the beginning we just had the idea of the product, and a lot of “facts” about our future customer. At that point we were not ready to start and decided to mature the idea/concept. Then, one of our team members make us realizes that our start up wasn’t based on “facts”, but it was based on guesses and opinions.

He was reading the book: “The four steps to the epiphany” wrote by Steven blanks. We are following the costumer development model created by the same author. His book motivated us to get out there and understand our market. Right now we are in the very first step of this model. We are generating our hypothesis and trying to figure out ways to prove them.
As David Weekly pointed out cleverly in his presentation, we do not really know where are we going to end, but we are excited for this journey. Stay with us, I am sure you will laugh and learn a lot.

As entrepreneurs we know how difficult it is to start with a new idea. It is even harder because we do not have others to relate to. We all thought it would be great if we knew about other entrepreneurs and their experiences on building start-ups. For this reason we want to share our experience with you. If you are building a startup anywhere in the world, follow us. We are going to share all our obstacles, challenges, and success with you. Get on board with us and experience how to start building a startup.
