GT18 - An early look at the first batch of teams from VIISA!
7 days ago
This week we talk to the teams of batch one of the Vietnam Innovative Startup Accelerator (www.viisa.vn). In episode 16 we talked to Adrian Tan (www.growthtigers.com/gt16/), the program manager to learn more about the program. Now we get to meet most of the teams from the very first batch. There are some really interesting teams in there and I think we'll see some great successes for sure! The way I approached this episode, after being asked to be a mentor for the VIISA program, was to come up with 5 or 6 questions that the teams would get asked to answer quickly by potential supporters at events or in the course of looking for investment. My questions ended up being: 1. What is the exact product? 2. What problem are you solving? 3. Why did you choose this problem? 4. What are the top 3 things you know about your customers/users? 5. what is your traction? 6. What do the next 6 months of development look like? I interviewed the following teams (in no specific order): 1. Wisepass - www.wisepass.co - Monthly Membership for Spirits (incredible traction here!!) 2. WeFit - www.wefit.vn - 1 membership, 100 gyms - in Vietnam. 3. UseData - www.usedata.vn - data analytics to optimize visual mechanizing online. 4. Butterfly Hub - www.butterflyhub.com - Transforming beauty through data science (product for Salons) 5. Fixir - www.fixir.co - Find the real cost of car repair, maintenance at your fingertips 6. FastSell - www.fastsell.vn - Consumer to Consumer commerce via mobile. Let me know what you think!
