3 ways to get a startup idea

Entrepreneurship should not all be about the exit but about a life style, doing what you love, and you are passionate about, building something from scratch, learning from the process and deliver something that will serve others.

These stories are meant to empower us, to keep us going when on the low curve of the startup life and most of all to inspire us to get started in the first place.
But starting up… getting the right idea… is not a piece of cake. Especially if you want to build that Unicorn. But if you believe that entrepreneurship should not all be about the exit but about a lifestyle, doing what you love, and you are passionate about, building something from scratch, learning from the process and deliver something that will serve others, then getting that first idea might not be that hard. Here are 3 ways to get an idea for your startup.
1. Look at the things you are passionate about, at your hobbies, what is it that you love doing and you would do it even when hit by challenges and low moods. What is it that makes you happy and you can take that thing at a professional level? Can you transform your hobby into a business? Give it a go!
2. Look at what positive changes you would be both able and happy to make in your daily life, in your house, neighborhood, community, city, planet. Can you find a way to make things run smoother, better, smarter? Give it a go!
3. Look at what makes you unhappy and you would like to change, what frustrates you and you would like to change. Can you find a way to eliminate the drawbacks and improve the things for good and for everybody? Give it a go!
When we came up with the idea of 2030 Builders, we looked at a board game on Human Rights and we understood we can do it better! We felt that our product can also change for the better the way training is delivered to companies.

We believe that people learn better while playing. We looked at where the need was in the market and we immediately identified that there was no useful tool, not to say easy and fun like a game, that could help companies work with SDGs. We did a short and positive creative brainstorming where we build on each others’ ideas with the “Yes, and…” principle and we really liked what we came up to at the end! We took the ideas through a Startup Weekend iteration session and over a weekend we built the red thread of where we wanted to go and what we wanted to achieve: Create an easy and fun tool for SDG Strategy Implementation. An SDG Game! We gave it a go!
