Transcript of A cosmic maximum gauntlet infinite carnage legend crisis saga or just The entrepreneur's way



The entrepreneur's way

Gonçalo Fortes
Who's the guy with the awesome hair?
Passionate about entrepreneurship, comic books, magic, theatre and ties.
Not that one. This one!
What the hell is entrepreneurship?
Why bother now?
Motivation
Fraternities
Academic associations
Classes
Communities
It can start before work
A cosmic maximum gauntlet infinite carnage legend crisis saga
Founder @ Crazydog
Founder @ PRODSMART
Founder of many other failures
Monomaniac startup enthusiast
Never had a job
It's not an university course
It's not what you hear on the news
It's not government subsidized programs
It's about solving problems
It's about helping people
It's about changing the world
It's something you feel in your guts
Reach
Technology
Economy
Social causes
Environmental causes
Money
Rock star entrepreneurship
It's not just another word for "company"
What is a startup?

What went wrong?
or just
The team
The idea
"A startup is a temporary organization designed to search for a repeatable and scalable business model" Steve Blank
Values, Mission and Vision
Persistence
Pros
Cons
Common Excuses
Join the roster!
Time
Money
No idea
I'm already working on something, but it won't be ready in the next three years
Stop being a fucking wantrepreneur
No schedules
No asshole boss bitching around
Make your own money
Work on something you like

Reach
Space-time continuum
We're the connected generation (Gen C)
Technology
It was never this easy to reach so many with so few resources
Social and environmental causes
Economy
It's sexy!
"A startup is a human institution designed to create a new product under conditions of extreme uncertainty" Eric Ries
Everything!
Complementary skills
Shared passion

Make, manage, market
Hustler, designer, hacker
It's not a one-man show
What drives you?

Why are you here?

Where do you want to go?
Yeah, I know. I also thought it was just theoretical bullshit!
It really doesn't matter. If you have the right team, you'll execute everything.
They're a dime a dozen. You have to have one, though.
Failure is the exercise of the soul. It allows us to define boundaries
Early failure prevents future failure
Learn how to harness it, channel it towards success
Do you prefer to fail grandiosely every day or be an incredibly boring person?
It's all about speed
Validate or invalidate
Fail fast
Fail cheap
Choose another approach

Rock star startup ecossystem (chicks dig it)
Shitloads of money (profit is not amoral)
Fame and fortune (in moderate dosages)
"Being an entrepreneur is jumping off a cliff and assembling an airplane on the way down" Reid Hoffman
Just go and build something... or die!
Cheap
Accessible
Fast development
The combination of the previous gives us access to underserved, eager markets.

Or allows us to create new ones.
Or maybe you're just trying to make the world a better place
Solve a problem for others
Solve a problem for yourself
Turn something you like into an idea
Turn a bad experience into an idea
No schedules
No asshole boss bitching around
Make your own money
Work on something you like
"Pack 30 years of your professional life in the first 7 or 8 years" Paul Graham
