Today I listened to an interview by Steve Blank of Jessica Mah about Jessica’s and inDinero’s story. I enjoyed this interview because of its emphasis on learning and moving forward. Jessica was really honest and humble about her experiences.
Some take home points for myself:
- Your going to make mistakes, just get started
- “Get out of the building” really can’t be emphasized enough
- The first inDinero code base was a way for Jessica and her co-founder to learn Rails while meeting a problem they had
- Customer validation technique: Collect credit card numbers on a landing page, but don’t charge people
The interview is about fifty minutes long. If you have the time I recommend checking it out.
Thank you Jessica Mah and Steve Blank for the interview and Standford University’s Entrepreneurship Corner for sharing and hosting the talk.
