Inspiring to hear how Marcin Kleczynski took a simple problem (how to get rid of malware on his family computer) and turn it into a business with 750 employees and 60,000 enterprise customers.
Like with most successful founder stories I listen to, they solve a clearly defined problem.
- Steal ideas. Don’t reinvent the wheel. It’s likely your problems have already been solved by someone else.
- Don’t compete head on with the big players in your market – look for the gaps that they are missing or “augment” their services with your solution.
- Build a team of people around you who share your vision. And learn to delegate decision making. If you don’t, your time will quickly get consumed.
