Have you heard of SproutBox? From their site, SproutBox:
is an elite crew of product developers, creatives and business experts. We invest our talent in startup companies with high growth potential in exchange for equity.
While their focus is software, I’m fascinated by their model. I think their approach could have merit in the medical device industry (although cycle time and ROI could be too long) and for communities interested in fostering entrepreneurship for economic growth.
- Are my goals well defined?
- Do I have the right strategy?
- Can I execute the strategy?
It’s a great read for anyone interested in a start-up and entrepreneurial adventure.
