Standard

Today, Co-Founder and Technology Director of RadyaLabs, Puja Pramudya, spent some time to be a guest speaker onΒ our 73rd codeMeetUp() at BCCF Bandung πŸ™‚

IMG_6996

The topic is about MVP to Validate Your Business Idea

IMG_6938

We have various audience, including one mum from Coding Mum πŸ™‚
IMG_6939

IMG_6948IMG_6940

Every startup has their own passion, like Google

IMG_6941

or Facebook

IMG_6942

So does RadyaLabs πŸ™‚
IMG_6943

Its passion is about mobile apps

IMG_6944

And like all startups, it has its own dream too
IMG_6947

Radya Labs has developed many mobile apps
IMG_6951

One of its best product is Appsterize

IMG_6952

The journey
IMG_6953

from ideation to kick-off

IMG_6954

from beta launch to v.10
IMG_6955

The development process took a long time due to these

IMG_6957

So RadyaLabs started to change their focus
IMG_6958

And listened more to the customer, resulting recurring clients and more transactions

IMG_6959

MVP is important
IMG_6961

Viable for what?

IMG_6962

The example

IMG_6964

The cycle
IMG_6965

Every product has its own MVP version to be defined

IMG_6966

Some techniques to build MVP version of our products
IMG_6967

Some examples

IMG_6968

Groupon MVP Version
IMG_6970

Another example
IMG_6971

Gojek MVP Version
IMG_6973

so the key is build with (free and available) software you know and do the manual work πŸ™‚

IMG_6974

WhileΒ also doing survey/interview and analysis
IMG_6975

Because numbers don’t lie

IMG_6976

Another example is Hailo
IMG_6977 IMG_6978
IMG_6979 IMG_6980

Every startup should set up metrics
IMG_6981 IMG_6982

And correlate the metrics with the target
IMG_6983

This is how Appsterize analyze the metrics and the targets

IMG_6984

The upcoming product of RadyaLabs πŸ˜‰

While the entrepreneur rate in Indonesia is very low compared to Malaysia, Singapore and Japan.

The biggest reasons of why Indonesia is lacking of entrepreneur are these

IMG_7721

Plus, becoming a founder of startup is a full of stress and pressure. Lots of start up founder committed suicide due of mental breakdown.

Standard

What is great about ProCodeCG codeMeetUp() is that we can learn many things in just 1-3 hours.
Like yesterday, we learned A LOT about what a Gibran Huzaifah, the CEO of Cybreed, the founder of e-Fishery, has gone through – from one failure to another, from one business to another, until he becomes who he is now. In such a very young age.

IMG_8682This young man is not only a successful businessman. He is also a kind and down to earth person. And super funny too πŸ˜€
IMG_8683

e-Fishery has won lots of awards so far:

IMG_8693e-fishery’s features:
IMG_8694And very good tips for starting up a business:

Start early. Start small.

The point is to find out if there is a problem to be solved, how to solve it, why people would buy your solution, and is it possible to create the product.
IMG_8697How to contact Gibran:
IMG_8698And this is us!
