    How to Validate Interest In Your App, Product or Business

    How can you figure out if people would come once you build it?

    Everybody goes like: "build it and they will come." The first step is to figure out if anyone would. Would they? Would any customers or consumers be interested? How can you find out?

    It's all in today's episode.

    Clear details on how to validate the first phase of Customer Validation: Interest Validation. I call this Phase 0: Interest Validation.

    If you're trying to build an app (or a computer program, or cloud software, or SaaS, or PaaS), or a new business you want to take off the ground, you need to find out if anyone would ever need it.

    By researching the web in the proper way, you can find out all that you need. Exact method in the episode.

    Roast- Acquire then Fail. FoodPanda vs HipMenu or How FoodPanda Shot Themselves in the Foot

    How can one truly fail after making a market-changing acquisition?

    Here's the story of a company that bought another company and established a monopoly (almost). They made it impossible for anyone else to compete with them in at least one market.

    Then, they did something stupid and we are here to roast them.

    In the startup world it's absolutely incredible what huge opportunities your competitors can create for you, just by being silly and making the wrong decisions.

    Listen to this episode. It's a really great example.

    Seasonality of Business - Episode 7

    It's Back to School and back to Startup Espresso!

    In this episode, Paul and Florin grind everything related to how different seasons and even different time intervals affect your cashflow, sales and marketing.

    No financial Quarter is the same and performance from Quarter to Quarter is different from business to business. That's why we give examples of ways to deal with events like: "Back to School", "Halloween", "Women's Day", "Valentine's Day", "Black Friday", but we don't stop there:

    Grinding Costs And Revenue Streams for Startups - Episode 6

    Grinding Costs And Revenue Streams for Startups - Episode 6

    Are you generating cash, or wasting cash? Paul and Florin will try to help you find out for yourself in today's episode.

    - getting a business plan
    - creating a first model for how your cashflow will work
    - going bootstrapped or receiving an investment
    - how does your behavior change after you get a lot of money and have much gold at hand?
    - what does your time cost?

    And many others will follow as you listen to the episode.

    Where first time founders usually fail is at tracking their costs and understanding how their cash situation evolves over different periods of time.

    Do you remember Eric's idea on Lean Startups: the most iterations you can make BEFORE your money runs out !!! If you don't know WHEN it runs out, you're gonna run out of possible iterations very fast.

    The co-hosts will walk through many important things to know and to think about.
