Started a 120-day startup validation challenge

Alexander Kluge @naii

I gave me a push!

It could not go on like that. Nothing was moving forward.

I started the 120-day challenge. Documented with the hashtag is #startupdiarystudiolist on Instagram and Twitter.

Mission: If I can’t validate studiolist.io within these 4 months, the project dies.

I started traveling… Morocco, Portugal, Spain for 6 weeks. Another 6 weeks in the US (East Coast to West coast), and 3 weeks in the UK and the rest in Berlin, Germany.

Validation means there is a market and therefore there is demand.

    I read somewhere that if you are not ashamed of your MVP then you launched too late. This is why this MVP still has wet paint that needs to be dried,
