ProCodeCG codeMeetUp() #74 – CyberLabs – 13 Tips to Create Your Own StartUp Company

Standard

Today before we started our 74th codeMeetUp(), weΒ coached one of ProCodeCG Kids about a project πŸ™‚

IMG_7494

His Mom came as the audience of codeMeetUp() and next week she will be in our Coding Mum Class πŸ™‚

IMG_7495

Our guest today is the Founder and CEO of CyberLabs: Ahmad Syarif Hidayatullah πŸ™‚

IMG_7496

He shared all the secrets that make CyberLabs a successful startup company

IMG_7497

It was all started in 2014 with 4 people working in one room
IMG_7498

And the added more crews (total 8) in 2015 and moved to a real office

IMG_7499

Then it grew exponentially to 22 crews! πŸ™‚
IMG_7500

CyberLabs doesn’t have investors. It is surviving by doing bootstrapping.

IMG_7501

What exactlyΒ CyberLabs do to survive and how?
IMG_7502

First, sensing by doing survey

IMG_7504

Then harvesting the result
IMG_7505

Then build a prototype

IMG_7506

To go through validation process. If the product does not pass this phase, you should do all over again (or at least from prototyping phase)
IMG_7507

After the product has gone through validation process, then you can scale up

IMG_7508

The core products of CyberLabs are Atom
IMG_7509

Hydro

IMG_7510

and Molecule
IMG_7511

If you’re going to create your own startup up company you should pick one of these options

IMG_7512

And learn from these successful startup companies
IMG_7513

The startup should be able to multiply itself, has the opportunity to become big, borderless

IMG_7514

Has competitive advantage like Garuda Indonesia vs AirAsia and iPhone vs Samsung
IMG_7515

Garuda Indonesia and iPhone offer premium service (differentiation), AirAsia and Samsung offer low cost (cost leadership)

IMG_7516

The startup should ready to pivot while keep growing. Has advisory board and share holder. And also has SOP.
IMG_7517

Investors prefer a non solo startups. A start up should customer centric, has partnerships with big companies and has disruptive technology.

IMG_7518

And the growth should be like folding paper to the moon: exponentially! πŸ™‚
IMG_7520

The summary:

IMG_7521

It was a great topic! We don’t cover everything in here but we will post the video on ProCodeCG YouTube Channel πŸ™‚

See you next week πŸ™‚

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

IMG_7721
