It has been close to a year since I wrote Making TheLorry.com: A journey from idea validation to being VC-funded.
As 2016 comes to a close, this article will highlight our hits, misses and key learnings for upcoming entrepreneurs.
The Chilli’s Summit
Fresh from receiving our Series A funds (USD1.5 million), Chee and I had dinner at Chilli’s early January 2016 to discuss top-level strategy and our plans for the year.
Quite simply, the goal was to grow x% by December 2016 in terms of revenue, number of bookings and gross profit.
We also discussed division of labour – I was to handle our bread-and-butter B2C business while Chee took on the fast-growing B2B department.
