People say starting a start-up is like a marathon. If you ever built one from the ground up, you know this is an understatement. A more accurate description would be running across the Sahara on one leg and very limited water. Ok, maybe two, if you have a co-founder.

 

Even so, few things are more rewarding than seeing your idea come to life. And few things teach you so much in such a short amount of time. Launching a start-up is the ultimate crash course in anything from international law to being a good judge of human character.

 

We know this because we work with start-ups daily. We help them build from the ground up and stay by their side as they scale up. From one-month projects to five years of continuous software development, we have witnessed and supported awesome projects being born, survive and then thrive.

 

If every successful start-up begins with a single decision, we`re looking to unpack precisely the early beginnings and that initial decision which led them to where they are today. Whether you`re an entrepreneur who`s feeling stuck or you`re just starting out and wondering if you have what it takes, this one`s for you.

 

“Start-up Starts” is a mini-interview series with some of the awesome start-ups we`ve worked with throughout the years and their inception. The first few months can make or break a project, so we wanted to dive deeper into these crucial moments for any start-up. We asked everyone the same three questions and … the rest is history. Literally.

 

1.) What sparked the idea for your project?

2.) What were the first three steps you took to get things rolling?

3.) Describe the biggest hurdle you had to overcome in the first 3 months.

 

Stay tuned for upcoming interviews!
