I’m often amazed at how easy it is to blow people’s minds with basic knowledge about startups. This is stuff that is quite simple in theory but never taught in school or university. Just by hanging out at a place like River City Labs, reading books and attending talks, you can learn so much that often goes unsaid outside the startup community. All it takes is one Startup Weekend and you’ll be primed and ready to start your own venture.
You’ve probably heard of the app UBER but have you heard of ‘UBER for X‘?
Ever since the explosion of UBER, we have seen a bunch of startups appear that apply the on-demand model to a variety of industries. These have become collectively known as UBER for X, a broad term that can describe any application that offers an on-demand physical service.
