Our way of doing

Your next big thing starts
small

Success is never instantaneous. Aligning product and users takes time, learning and doing. It is once you’ve found that right fit that you can start to think about how big you want to be!

We look
for
problems

Problems need solutions and solutions mean value. Starting by finding the right problems is the only way towards success.

Fail !
The sooner
the better

Success is great, but it teaches you nothing. Starting with failure is the only way to grow towards sustainable success. Are you afraid of failure? Falling only hurts if it’s from big heights.

Learn
to do
Do to
learn

Building successful projects is not about following gurus or methods, it’s about doing stuff. That’s the only way to learn!ss.

Execution
Execution
Execution

Value isn't created by brainstorm sessions, endless conversations and forecasting spreadsheets. Value is created by execution. Good execution.

Think
like an
entre-preneur

Entrepreneurs have a funny brain. They are obsessed by only one thing: creating value
for their customers. Ready to try it out?

(Your)
ideas
are
worthless

Value is created when people adapt your solution to a real problem. This is a process, not a eureka moment.

Get out
of there !

The right solutions to your problem can probably be found anywhere, but not from behind your desk. So get out there and meet some people.
