BUIDLING STARTUP IDEA
Some startup ideas：
2. find my salon
The main mission of call for action/business/marketing:
A partnership of temporary organization designed to search for repeatable and scalable business model. Not a small version of company.
ex: Fab online shopping site : social media for gays 100,000 users
feature: daily deals, that product art gallery -> no longer a social media
Flickr has a classic pivot to make who they are now.
What is a good startup idea?
must, want, or nice to have
What does a good startup disrupt?
A good startup unbundle done technology.
ex: newspaper : google, twitter, facebook, Craiglist, eBay
news, interview, story, podcast
Practice: let’s unbundle school: 上課、社團、交朋友、資訊（library）、分類、線下課程 -> then we have coursera, udacity, codility, hackerrank (interview) in market
How about unbundle bank? TransferWise – a clever way to transfer money abroad and beat the banks (P2P)
What do VC think?
30 倍回報？it has to be a big scale!! Platform could be scaleable!! Platform is naturally scalable.
solve problem, create value, large total addressable market, business model, disruptive, barrier to entry (barrier 應該是要隨著時間增加的)
ex: 女裝、女性化妝品 VS Facebook core is the content
Market is about size and numbers:
1. total addressable market : 內食、外食
2. serviceable available market : 煮飯者
3. serviceable obtainable market (reality) : do region
Notes for policy making –
Pivot VS 為了創業而創業 different!!
start up 只做start up生意，這會有問題的。Your cash flow depends on our customer’ cash flow
Notes for startup founders –
- The attitude of 免費->所以沒有用，沒關係 -> BIG NO NO
- President, Y-Combination, Sam Altman
Far better to think of yourself as a project than a company for as long as possible. -> 如果是做company時，放棄的機會比較高。自己是不是真的很有興趣。

Homejoy失敗：1. 太便宜，用scaleability （沒有空間可以承擔失敗，沒有現金cover）2. 客戶希望穩定，平台功能喪失（但是供求不穩定者，uber、airbnb）3. 法規，阿姨看到你募資很多之後，是不是要付我勞健保
