What should you do in the pre-MVP stage?

Can you build a startup while having a full-time job?

Can you build a startup while having a full-time job? I have been in dozens of situations where people have been sharing their thoughts about this topic. For the most part, people were mostly against it. Their viewpoint was that building a startup needs focus and dedication which makes it very hard to progress in your startup even at an early stage while having another full-time commitment. The only problem I have with this argument is that it’s making the barrier to entry so high and misleading. Many full-timers can’t even think about the idea. But as with every topic, there is always “It depends” and in this episode, we want to share some of our learnings on that front.

Behind the scenes of building a startup

The web is full of advice about building startups, yet we struggled to understand why hasn’t anyone thought of sharing his experience live at each stage. We are not just talking about reflections. We are talking about sharing every step and every learning week by week. And that's what we plan to do! In Startup Insiders, We will be telling you about our activities, how we plan and execute, how we prioritize and what we really care about. We will also be having some of our advisors and founders in our network with whom we will reflect upon what we learnt and try to give you knowledge in a nutshell. We are still young entrepreneurs who are trying to navigate through the wildness and find success, that’s why we’ll be sharing with you some of the challenges we face and ask you for advice and feedback.
