#STARTUP  ADVICE

From http://www.startupsmart.com.au/business-planning/top-five-tips-to-get-into-a-us-start-up-accelerator/201209247663.html, featuring advice by KAYWEB Angels CEO Haig Kayserian:

“Make sure you are convinced by the problem you are trying to solve with your intended product,” says Haig Kayserian, a New York-based Australian who is CEO of Kayweb Angels, a start-up fund that is receiving applications for its latest round until October 31.

“Do not kid yourself. If the problem does not really exist, an investor who reads/listens to hundreds of applications a year is going to find you out and pull your pants down.”

At the very least, the decision-makers at American accelerators will want to see that you have done your homework.

“If you cannot prove very clearly that your problem exists (e.g. we are in the dark) and your solution is clearly a winner (e.g. the light bulb), conduct market research,” says Kayserian.

“Your solution may be for shoppers but the investor reading your application or attending your pitch may not be a keen shopper.”

“Do not assume something is obvious; prove it. Go out there and interview people in your intended market of entry; it also shows you are willing to go that extra yard.”
