This week in RAISE saw the launch of Raise Start-Up Stories, this is the start of a series of monthly events showcasing stories from founders who have been there and done it. They will share experiences, what works, what doesn’t work with the main aim to help others starting out.
The start-up club is a small gathering of people with tech start up ideas, founders and startups that want to learn and improve. These real life experiences can really help others avoid mistakes and accelerate their idea to the next stage.
It’s the perfect place for those with a tech start up idea to come and explore how they would take their idea to the the next stage. It is also the perfect place for founders already up and running to learn from others. It’s all about networking, helping each other, meeting others in the same position as you.
This week we had Daniel McGlade from Oroson share his experience and lessons learned.
Top tips included
- The CEO only has 3 jobs, come up with the idea, create the team to deliver the idea and find the funds to make it happen
- The CEO should always be selling to customers, suppliers, employees and even investors
- Founders should value their time and use it wisely
- Founders should understand they will make mistakes and use any learnings from that to do it better next time
Next month on Thursday 13th February we have Marty Neill from AirPOS sharing his experiences
If you have a tech idea, in a tech startup or a tech founder come along and join the conversation
