Too often, founders work on ideas that can never make it, no matter how passionate they are. Problems might be a twisted market, wrong perception of user needs, the fact that it has been tried n times before and always failed, and many other caveats that are best identified BEFORE starting to put serious effort into an idea.
That’s why G-Force is a (roughly) bi-weekly event to either
a) show and tell your startup or product idea in order to get tough feedback BEFORE you begin to seriously put work and money into it. The feedback you get might either be a strong suggestion to reconsider or even fold your idea – or highly valuable advice on the next most useful steps to turn it into reality. There’s no need for you to prepare a slide deck or follow any “elevator pitch” rule; just tell us what you’re working on.
b) come as a guest to hear what other founders in Berlin are working on, learn how to discover critical challenges and questions about ideas yourself, and maybe even join the team of an idea you particularly like.
Mentoring and advising founders at conferences globally, Berlin Startup Academy CEO and German Technology Entrepreneurship Center co-founder Christoph is also the author of Business Punk magazine’s startup review section and host of Founders Unscripted talk show. The feedback you get will be powerful and meaningful, guaranteed. If you’re on to something good, there’s an option to talk about participation in the upcoming GTEC Berlin Startup Academy program.
