There are a few ways to self-fund your startup besides "saving up". Let's chat...
B2C, B2B, P2P, single-sided, double-sided, etc. Marketplaces come in various flavours. I've worked on 3 startups that have dealt with various marketplaces. We can figure it out together for your startup as well!
Product management and project management are so alike and yet so different. I can help. I've tried my hands with product management for 3 startups and have over 10 years of project management experience.
I've learnt a ton through my LocaWoka journey, experience with Startup Weekend, and mentoring startups at hackathons - I'd love to share it with you to get you started.
Agree with Kenneth that this is a crowded place. My suggestion would be to niche it down and focus on the supplier side accordingly. It could be based on:
- type of supplier (rental car agencies, seniors, married people looking to give-up their "fun" car for a kid-friendly car, etc.)
- type of car (could be brand, model, year, and/or category specific)
- serving geography (could be from a specific set of locations)
- and more
Hope this helps!
Where do millennial and gen z artists hangout? What are their burning pains and aspirations? What language do they use? Do you truly understand what they really want?
My perspective is that creating solutions to your target market's burning problems will increase your chances of success as a business. Your business having the same values as your target market is fantastic, but it won't mean much if you're not delivering what they're willing to pay for.
I hope I understood your question correctly.
Hussain was very helpful in giving me ideas for resources and budgeting for my upgrade plan. Also, I was really struggling with the best way to move forward technology-wise for the upgrade and he guided me in a direction that makes sense from a business perspective...something I wasn't fully thinking with. I feel confident I am now going in the right direction and really appreciate his knowledge from experience as a multiple entrepreneur. Thanks Hussain!
