Essence of a healty company
Companies we like have
Summarize the company's business on one slide.
Address markets with rapid growth or change potential. Local start, international adaptation. A 100mEuro
market allows more time for tuning the business model and for developing margins.
Be different on the market. Answer a real need. How can it be protected against copying? Pick the one thing
that is of essential importance to the customer, then present a compelling solution.
No company goes anywhere without distribution. Develop sales channels. The more, the better. Embrace them and
“listen” to the market.
Dare to be different. Constantly challenge conventional wisdom, try new directions. Create novel solutions.
Outwit the competition.
First class founders attract first class teams. A start-up equals people. The way people pull together,
determines company culture. It is the core of the team. Pick team members who are the best in their domain.
Dribble and move! Speed and astuteness will usually help out-smart large companies.
What's critical? Spend only on the priorities and maximize profitability.
Start with a limited budget. It forces discipline and focus. Keep things simple. Products developed by great
people require little firepower.
