Sasha Talks Tech
startup stories, trends and digital lifestyle hacks
Technology is all about making something happen in a new and innovative way. It allows us to find solutions to problems. Sometimes we didn’t even know we had a problem until somebody invented a way around it! It’s about creation and development and betterment. No wonder so many awesome tech inventors are considered to be the world’s best entrepreneurs.
It takes a sharp and savvy mind to be that good. Could you do it? Even if you have little to invest except a few hopeful ideas, you too could create your own tech company.
All it takes is a great idea. Something new, something different, but perhaps so obvious it’s surprising that nobody did it already. Those are the ideas that create attention and hype. Most importantly they generate the interest of the people that have the cash in their hands for you. Yes, every startup company needs that first injection of investment. Your idea should be so groundbreaking that investors are desperate to throw their cash into it.
What You Need
Something that works is always handy when you’re trying to sell an idea. If you can’t stretch your purse strings to a working prototype, perhaps you can create an animation mock-up of what it achieves? Presentation is key. You need to demonstrate how good the product is, and you need to present it in a way that shows how professional you are too. Do you need people working for you? You might need some specialists to help you build and sell your tech. You may need marketing strategies to remain competitive against bigger corporations. That doesn’t mean you can’t be in charge and lead the way.
Chances are you don’t have as much background knowledge, skills, or training as you might need to feel comfortable running the whole business. That doesn’t mean you can’t acquire what you need! You can gain additional qualifications like an operations management degree or an engineering diploma online. Nobody needs to know you’re studying again. In the meantime, you’re getting access to the latest industry practices and ideas so you can be at the forefront when running your own tech company.
If You Build It, They Will Come
Investors really like to see, handle, and use the tech or gadgets they’re asked to invest in. Can you build it with no money? It depends on what it is. If it’s an app, chances are you already have the OS to put it together, and a couple of friends to help with graphics and music. When it comes to working electrical items, a home workbench with all the kit needed might be a bigger ask. Still, if you’re a tech geek, you might have most of what you need. Can the Parental bank help you out for the rest?
Creating an entire tech company from nothing can be done. There are plenty of examples throughout the last four decades to prove that. Can you do it? Even if you’re not ready yet, you can become ready. So grab your friends, use social media, and present that fantastic idea in a way that will sell millions!
