My three keywords for a start-up: team, share, community
Technological advancement is increasing and becoming a core component of basically any business. Currently most technological advancements happen in the world of bits, but sure and slowly it’s meeting the world of atoms, artificial intelligence is the driving force behind self-driving cars, just like big-data is the driving force behind Internet of Things or software defined networking in Telecom. In short: Technology is growing broadly and cross-domain. Innovation in technology must be approached by multidisciplinary teams.

Start-ups take the concepts from the lean start-up philosophy close to their hearts: Build a company with a nice focus, maximize value versus human capital and scale through smart distribution, smart production, growth-hacking and Cloud infrastructure.

Great talent, an idea, proper timing and strong execution could potentially be of tremendous value, this is something we have learned from the start-up scene across the world.

Designing success starts with a designing a successful team that can execute a strong strategy and adapt on challenges within timing and approaching optimal product-market fit. What a successful team consists of has been eloquently described by Rei Inamoto from AKQA: “To run an efficient team, you only need three people: A hipster, a hacker and a hustler.”

A hipster is the creative genius, a designer, translating concepts to visualization.

A hacker fully understands the “how” behind the product or service. The hacker is a person that can translate the concept to reality, usually a role for an engineer or very practical person.

And a hustler, who packages the hipster’s creative design and the hacker’s technological solution and brings it to the masses in the form of sales and partnerships.
