CONGRATULATIONS! We Invite you to be part of the E8 ENTREPRENEUR SPOTLIGHT!

WHAT IS THE E8 ENTREPRENEUR SPOTLIGHT?

LET'S TALK ABOUT IT.

The Entrepreneur Spotlight is where we highlight startups and their founders. It's a selective process and only accept startups based on a few reasons. This being that we believe in your vision, find it noble, believe in the founders, unique ability, creativity and so on. Our team at E8 labs has selected your startup for one or many of these reasons mentioned above.  We want to dive in and share  your story, we want to understand your journey thus far and discuss where we see your startup in the nexts six months to a year.

E8 ENTREPRENEUR SPOTLIGHT

THE FOUNDERS, IDEA & CONCEPT, THE MVP

THE FOUNDER(s)

We'll dive into the founder(s) and their backgrounds. We know that not everyone has built an app, so we want to understand the deciding factor - that switch in your head that said, "I want to build an app!"  

 

Were you trying to merge your world with that of the app world? Was this an idea that you've sat on for a while and wanted to find the right time or team to start?

 

We want to get to know you, your vision, and overall reason for building your startup.

THE FOUNDERS, IDEA & CONCEPT, THE MVP 

The next thing we'll dive into is the idea. We want to understand when this came to fruition, the milestones you envisioned running into,  the iterations you had play-out in your head, and how you got to the idea. In many cases when we first come up with an idea we can't stop thinking about it, the more we do it evolves into something grand. It's as if you're grabbing puzzle pieces in your head and putting them together, we want to unpack that and understand your thought process throughout the many iterations of your idea. 

We'll talk about your BIG WHY, the overall concept, the personas involved, your elevator pitch, competitors, value add for users and more.

Lastly, we'll jump into some questions to help demystify  the full concept, we'll talk about the MVP (first version) and outline what we're building as your first release into the app stores. You may be at the wireframe stage and looking to raise capital or in the development stage preparing to launch your first version, either way peel the onion on your startup.

 

There are some questions we'll ask during our zoom call, these questions are to help us define a concrete concept and act as a north start which we can use throughout the life of the MVP.
