My Journey Through the Plan Start-up Difficulty

It was just 5 months back when my high school good friend, Miika Korja, provided me a call to talk about a concept he had about a social business We talked for almost an hour and a couple of weeks later on, he sent me some notes he had actually composed. This was the birth of Lumi, a technical service for assisting people and organisations easily step and balance out their carbon footprints.

With this objective in mind, Miika got another good friend on-board: Jasper Ginn, who is a knowledgeable information researcher and will supervise of the back-end advancement of Lumi.

That is why we chose to use to the Blueprint StartUp Challenge, This competitors provided us the possibility to win ₤ 5,000, which is half of the preliminary target we require to begin establishing Lumi. However, more notably, it provided us a reason to begin establishing our concept effectively: It made us think of the issue we are attempting to resolve and prepare a monetary projection. We likewise needed to try to find rivals and comprehend what our competitive benefit is. Lastly, it pressed us to perform preliminary marketing research which, with around 210 individuals, provided us really motivating outcomes!
