On a Friday before the long, Martin Luther King weekend, we thought we would change things up a bit here. We would hit you with a 2009 masterpiece from the startup master, Guy Kawasaki. If you do not already know, Guy is a venture capitalist who did a couple of early tours at Apple and is the author of a start-up must read, the Art of the Start. He is now the Managing Director of Garage Technology Ventures, is running his latest company, Alltop, and continues to give speeches and talks across the country on startups, innovation, entrepreneurship, social media and small business success.
This video is a (well) sliced version of a presentation he gave last year where he discusses in about 8 minutes the 10 steps (plus a bonus one) for innovation and making your startup a great company. Since KikScore is a startup we pay particular attention to the guidance, like Guy’s presentation, that is given on startups. In fact, you can see that in our series where we narrate some of the issues we face building our startup into a viable business.
Please check out the video of Guy’s presentation below so you get context for these ten steps that he covers:
1. Make Meaning
2. Make Mantra
3. Jump to the Next Curve
4. Roll the Dice
5. Don’t Worry be Crappy (no that is not a typo)
6. Let 100 Flowers Bloom
7. Polarize People
8. Churn Baby Churn
9. Niche Yourself
10. Follow the 10/20/30 Rule
11. (Bonus) – Don’t Let Bozos Grind You Down
Please tell us what your thoughts are on the 10 steps.
