What is crucial for a startup to succeed?


Lisa, is a startup that has been a huge success. As the owner and originator of the platform, what do you think is crucial for a startup to succeed?


Elisabet: From my experience, a crucial thing for a startup to succeed is to be able to take baby steps. So just start with a minimum viable product, start with the little things and start testing if your platform could work, if you could get clients, if you could get traffic on your platform. And if that is going, then you should build your platform step by step. Until one day, I hope the day will arrive, a whole platform is finished, but it will never be finished. So you should be able to reduce it till later, little things that you can handle and what you can make and go step by step.
