Published on

I provide the how and why to bootstrap a startup - even if you are neither designer nor programmer. It can be done, and I want to teach people what is working for me.

  • @triharsaadicahya No, don't share all of it. Write all your killer features. Drill down to the main few features that offer exclusive value. Practice explaining your plan in a few minutes (less time is better) and keep a couple of the best features unspoken. If someone can listen to you, do what you revealed without you and beat you, even with the things you help back, then you need to spend more time learning.

  • @triharsaadicahya You need to talk to people, decide who to work with, and share the basics. Try to do something with a tchnical co-founder that's amll in scope, first. See how that goes, and build on that relationship. Talk to me in G+, if you like.

  • this is also my problem. i'm a designer that can't code. I've once pitch my idea at local startup weekend, and try to find coder to help me materialize the idea. But, still no luck..
    anyway, i share my idea in various form thinking it is useless if i keep it secret,but i don't know how to 'secure' it. Should we just share it, with the change someone might steal it. What do you think?
