JOIN US FOR A GOOGLE VENTURES DESIGN SPRINT AND LAUNCH IDEAS INTO SUCCESSFUL STARTUPS! ALSO, IDEAS GRILL IS A THING.
Starting today (yup, right now), we are announcing Ideas Grill. Years of brainstorming have gone into this and now we’re going all in. You can view and comment on all the projects “on the grill” on the public Trello board: https://trello.com/b/2TaxsEbm/ideas-grill# (we’re not shy)
The Master Plan has three parts.
1. Design Sprints. (see YouTube explainer)
Straight into the fire with the Google Ventures Design Sprint method, a raw idea goes in and 4 days later a product is tested on customers. It’s intense and you should register your name to join us for one. Be there and you get equity in the new startup that comes out.
2. Investibility Benchmark.
Inspired by Investible, one of the most successful seed funds in the world, we’ve created a written exam to put a startup business to the ultimate test. It’s comprehensive and hard to pass, but passing takes your startup to the next level … investibility.
3. Private Equity Seed Fund.
A (secret 🤫) Swiss partner is building us a platform for granting startups with seed capital from angel investors worldwide. This will come online later this year.
OK, Design Sprints 🏃♂️🏃♂️💨
These are kinda intense! We can only do 1 per month. Because space is limited, you should register your name right now.

Srsly, if you’re in Prague, just register and reserve a spot. The rest of this email can wait … 🤔
Here’s the gist of a Design Sprint if you didn’t watch the video…
We get a team together of 5-8 skilled people and everyone clears the calendar. And instead of a normal boring week of work, we go through a course of activities so that by the end of the week you’ve prototyped and tested a new idea with customers.
It’s a really unique experience – ask anyone else who’s done one.
