Ironhack (2016/02/10) Lessons learnt: 2nd Martian year
Transcript of Ironhack (2016/02/10) Lessons learnt: 2nd Martian year
We are a webapp dev shop
Dude, this sux!
Didn't have the means to sell products
Didn't know marketing
Didn't have contacts nor investment
Talk to me, babe
Ideas are worth 0$
No one will steal your idea
Don't ask people to sign NDAs
In the beginning, sign them
People will give you feedback
... but we knew how to make apps
Defined company culture & values
Turned into a consulting company
Always with contract
No favours on day one
Hire recommended people
As the company grows, so do the chores
You can't do everything
Delegate, outsource, forget
Focus, focus and then some
The more hats, the less credibility
Focus drives the team together
Is this helping me succeed?
No: F*ck it.
Yes: Try to merge it.
Just Do It
Want a team? Try this:
Sell MVP while it's being built
Bootstrapping, no investment
Sales from day one
Kick your sales guy out of the cave...
... and lock him out.
(Feed him from time to time)
Nice to have:
Be your own company
What if you fail?
Learn from that
And most of all, whatever you do
Don't undervalue yourself
Avoid these words:
partnership, strategic/investment project, synergies.
Never give up
Share with others
Learn to say
2nd Martian year Lessons learnt

Tweet 'hi' -> @lexrodba
Everybody talks about being an entrepreneur and creating companies...
... while others are entrepreneurs
and create companies.
-> They say
-> They say
they do it
very company culture
Fragmentation grenade first (diverge)
Find what works (converge)
If you can do it, you can measure it
If you can measure, you can improve it
