July 02 : onboarding

During their onboarding, the startups had the chance to benefit from the intervention of Nicolas d’Haussy, serial entrepreneur and founder of Zouzoucar. He shared his experience of design thinking that he was able to acquire during his training at Stanford. The opportunity for the 3 incubees to face the needs of their users. 

 

The incubees have also been able to work on their MVP (minimum viable product), in order to test and improve their product / service. One of the incubees told us “It forced me to reconsider our product exit strategy and get out of our comfort zone.

People do not buy a product, they buy a better version of themselves.

Yann Marteil, CEO of Via ID also shared his entrepreneurial experience and advice. The French market is a complicated market, and according to him, it is relevant to think quickly about a strategy of internationalization, which implies decisive technical choices. In addition, he explained that the entrepreneurs’ journey is a marathon, where you have to keep the horizon in sight, focus on your project and surround yourself with professional that can help you when necessary.

Entrepreneurs have a relationship with time and psychology somewhat atypical, you will work, eat and sleep your startup, you will be involved at 1000%. So you have to be resilient and learn to bounce back from hard times.
