When Peter Thiel talks about the importance of distribution for startups in Zero to One is he actually referring to the place through which a startup provides its product or a startup’s sales/customer acquisition strategy?

He says: “Distribution is something of a catchall term. It essentially refers to how you get a product out to consumers. More generally, it can refer to how you spread the message about your company. (…) But for whatever reason, people do not get distribution. They tend to overlook it. It is the single topic whose importance people understand least. Even if you have an incredibly fantastic product, you still have to get it out to people.”

How much to ask for in equity?

I’m probably about to join a four old health/insurance startup with about four years in the building that has just started getting major clients and rapidly growing.

I would be joining as the lead product designer in a sixteen person startup that is fully remote and managing the entire design workflow. (I have a product design intern helping me)

It was a pretty bullshit long and intense interview process for leaving my cushy enterprise job but I wanted to make the move to broaden my horizons and grow. I last spoke with the lead developer who basically was the same as me in regards to startups (ambivalent and kind of skeptical) but he said he was convinced of the product only after a year of freelancing remote to it and moved in-perdon with his family in the middle of the pandemic to focus full-time on it.

I believe the startup is max three years from a buy-out by a bigger insurance or health company. How much equity should I be asking for? On Angelist it says salary for my role is 90k-125k and 0.1-0.25% equity. Realistically, I’m expecting a lower offer. Should I ask for equity straight up, MUA’s? Etc. I just want to cover my bases for what I foresee to be the long-haul until aquisition.

Thanks!

Renting out campervans

Hi guys,

Been looking to get involved in a start up for a while now and wanted to float the idea of renting out campervans. I live in Scotland so I doubt there would be a lack of demand, especially given the current pandemic we live it (staycations obviously being more frequent now).

I have some capital that I could use to buy a small fleet of vans, do these up, create a brand and market this business.

Any input is much appreciated – particularly from a business perspective (I have little business knowledge)

Thanks, James

Best way to implement an AI chat bot on my website?

Hey! First time posting here 🙂

I want to integrate an AI chat bot on my website (B2B SaaS) but I wasn’t sure what the best approach would be and would love to have your suggestions.

The goal of the chat bot would be for sales/marketing and to potentially be able to schedule demos and send calendar invites via outlook.

I’m pretty open to paying for outside services, but not too crazy about paying too much money. I don’t mind building my own from the ground up (sounds fun actually!) but I’m not sure where to begin.

  • what chat bot services would you recommend if I go with this route?
  • if I make my own chat bot, what resources do you recommend? What data sets can I use? Sales, marketing, and scheduling a demo would be the big factors.
