Scatterwork: Hello John, what were you working on when you contacted Scatterwork? Could you tell us a bit more about the organization?
John: I’m founder of Homebid, which is an online bidding platform and I was participating in the New Frontiers. It’s a course in Ireland for entrepreneurs for startup, helping with startup ideas.
Scatterwork: Can you tell us a little bit about the prize that you won?
John: yeah, we were very lucky that we got “best business idea” award and there’s prizes given on the course and we got “best business ideas”, so we’re very proud of that
Scatterwork: What type of involvement did Scatterwork have and what were the benefits for you?
John: As entrepreneurs we had our product, we had our minimum viable product and then we were assigned a mentor from Scatterwork. What that did was prioritize, put everything in order and we had a start line and a finish line. Basically Scatterwork has identified all the obstacles in between and trained us to use various tactics to get us right through to the very end in a fashion which was fast and seamless.
Scatterwork: What would you apply from this experience going forward?
John: I have multiple other businesses as well and what I’ve done is everything that I’ve learned from Scatterwork we’ve put processes and procedures in place. Basically what it has done: in one month now I can do something that earlier could have taken me up to six months. So structures, practices procedures is what I really, really have got from Scatterwork and it’s just invaluable.
Scatterwork: So thank you for your time, John
John: Thank you.
