Friday Forum – The Journey of Start-Ups with Matt Barnett

At this Friday Forum, we speak with Matt Barnett of Verbate about the journey of building a start-up business.

25th-July-Matthew-Barnett

Matthew is an innovator, an entrepreneur, a creative adrenaline junkie. Matt spends his days away from the office placing ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances.

The statistics say that 90% of communication is visual, so why rely so much on written feedback? Its here that Matt got an idea! Why not use smartphone video surveys to replace focus groups & written feedback. Receive 1000’s of meaningful, visual insights at the click of a button, and a fraction of the cost.

Matthew’s lastest startup – Verbate.co lets you simply text / email video interviews to anyone in the world. The simple link opens their smartphone camera, on which they respond instantly, filming themselves, their workplace, home or whatever you desire.

Verbate is working with some of the worlds leading brands and agencies, see www.verbate.co – Hear about the journey that an entrepreneur goes through to start up a business and then make it profitable. The questions Matt answers are :

So , we’re had a great idea – is it possible to turn it into a business?
How are Startups different from other types of Businesses?
What are the stages that Startups go through?
What can help make a Startup a Success?

The journey of startups is fast and risky ,at times, you will hear the enthusiasm and energy that Matt puts in – it is a journey – this is what makes it so interesting – enjoy!
