Surprise Granny with your startup

  To someone it may sound weird, but development of older adult care products and services is very likely to grow into a huge new market niche soon, given the number of baby boomers promises to increase by 75 percent. One may think that pensioners are not the customers ready to spend money, but this is actually a misperception. Firstly, because their children try all means of the modern science and technology to provide their beloved parents, grandparents and great-grandparents with proper care and attention. Thanks god, they live longer and in most cases wish to stay in their own…

In Ukraine, the local community seems to be truly enthusiastic about creating a perfect infrastructure for realization of innovative ideas by the talented youth. Every year we learn about new exits and impressive achievements made by Ukrainian startuppers, which, not surprisingly, causes the infrastructure to grow at the…

logo (5)

     Even though startups have become so widespread by now, there are still many people who simply do not believe in them. Why? Because not only beginning something literally from scratch is damn risky, but this also requires extremely hard work. Not all talented specialists make good entrepreneurs, just like not many experienced businessmen are bright enough to create a new product without external help and check if their idea can work at all. That is why, it is always worth a try – on your own or with a good team! We decided to give you a small…

     Many people would agree that scaling is a truly special stage of business development, which makes you think ‘out of the box’ in order to enter new markets successfully. Each scaling case seems to be unique and results in a strategy dependent on a number of specific business factors: scaling destinations, the product itself, potential audience, marketing etc. It’s cool when you consider possible business migration at the very beginning and design your product to be relatively ‘universal’ (worth mentioning, this is far from easy). However, sometimes scaling opportunities emerge somehow unexpectedly, and then you have to introduce…

Turns out, this scenario sounds a bit confusing. While the Americans are totally open to such evolution in the world of technology and production in general, Europeans are accepting those related changes quite slowly and reluctantly. They explain it by certain ethical issues, data privacy, market uncertainty and even fear of failure. All these fears and doubts connected with the artificial intelligence development have a…
