Is it required to solve a problem to have a successful startup?
The reality is NO.
Given I don’t ‘get’ some of the companies above it would be silly for me to explain why they are still successful then.
What we can surmise is:
- We can never hope to understand everyone’s problems and everyone’s needs
But that as a general rule:
- If enough people have the problem you see/experience and not ‘imagine’.
Then that’s a pretty good place to START building a business.
And there are MANY MANY more examples of these. That would be all the companies /programs/products you love to use.
So solving a problem that YOU CAN SEE…seems a pretty good place to start
