Are you looking to start a business but don’t know where to begin?
I’m the VP of Business Operations at Intro, a marketplace connecting people to entrepreneurs. I’ve chatted with some of the world’s most successful founders (like Alexis Ohanian at Reddit and Spencer Rascoff at Zillow), and I distilled my top 5 tips about generating the right business idea.
If you want personalized help and advice, you can book one-on-one video calls with these founders and many more at Intro.
1. Start with a problem
“The way to get startup ideas is not to try to think of startup ideas. It’s to look for problems, preferably problems you have yourself.” – Paul Graham, founder of Y Combinator
Nick Huzar founded OfferUp because he was having a kid and had no room in his house. He needed to sell stuff.
David Greenfeld founded DreamPops because he loved sweets and became lactose intolerant.
