Padup Ventures is building a Start-up Ecosystem. Padup was created to help entrepreneurs get on their feet with open sourced resources and enjoy the advice of mentors who have a lot more experience. While this does not guarantee entrepreneurial success, Padup has some very relevant lessons for new entrepreneurs:
Not everyone is meant to be an entrepreneur, however, they can be. Padup Bootcamp shall help aspiring entrepreneurs determine whether or not their Idea is executable into a sustainable & scalable business through a scientific process that has been tried and tested.
No matter how perfect it seems in one's head, most ideas are riddled with flaws. The Padup Bootcamp incubation program helps uncover and fix various flaws in entrepreneurial ideas.
It is important that the key to ensuring success is to find the right balance between processes and tactics that help actual execution and deliver results. Whether it's a product-based or a service-based startup, Padup Bootcamp processes help effect actual execution and delivery.
Inexperienced entrepreneurs may not always realize it, but in order to succeed, they need solid direction from good Mentors. The business world is challenging and, at times, unpredictable, and without a keen Mentor to direct their energy, they may end up fizzling out before striking success. Padup Bootcamp Mentors provide specific help on demand to provide direction and strategy to build ideas into businesses.
Learning firsthand in Padup Bootcamp about the resources required will help plan the business more conservatively as a businessperson. Furthermore, inexperienced entrepreneurs may have more difficulty locating initial resources to build momentum
At Padup Bootcamp, Mentors are hands-on and insist on the POC (not prototype) at the earliest. Most of the time the idea is there for a while, but nothing gives more insight about it than starting to get involved with it.
Padup Ventures shall help prove the value of the idea and the realism of the projections when the time comes to present to investors. It's a stage of development that will prepare the entrepreneur to make rational, long-term decisions for the direction of their business rather than fantasizing about what the best could be.
Startup Ecosystem is an extremely critical factor in the success of a Startup. Padup Bootcamp helps these individuals in preparing effective business plans, building domain knowledge and business networking. Entrepreneurs will learn more from each other, and other businesses. Investors/entrepreneurs seeking to make equity investments shall be leveraged as mentors, businesses shall provide professional services and ultimately shall create a climate of collaboration & networking
The key differentiator between success and failure lies with having a “great” founder/team as the entrepreneurs have almost always shared a set of core characteristics that were critical to the success of their ventures. However, functioning together and as a team needs more than just sharing values.
Understanding the culture of innovation in the community is also critical as that serves as an important metric, to determine market demand for the kinds of services startup(s) will be offering. Padup Bootcamp creates awareness about opportunities and sharing ideas about new technologies as basic entrepreneurship skills will shape the model to understand the difference between entrepreneurship out of necessity versus opportunity.
