So I attended an event called Startup weekend. It was the first time for this event in Sudan …
anyways I had my idea which is to invest in education and I was working on that alone and I wanted to find the right people to help me make it a reality.. until I met the team “Sh0o0f” Muaz, Lyina and Salma..
When I saw Salma on the stage I listened to her idea and I found it pretty close to mine so I contacted her immediately and She was like “we will be the winners of SWK” 🙂
Then I saw Muaz and learned that his idea is to make interactive educational videos … now I saw a great potential in this guy when he showed me some of his art work.. so I was like “we can collaborate and develop a good content for our Startup “.. and he was like “great deal”…
Things I’ve learned from SWKhartoum
I would like firstly to thank the team who made SWK possible in Sudan:
Now let us get in business,
If I would describe my experience:
I met some great designers, I realized that if someone knows about Photoshop & Illustrator that’s not enough excuse for him/her to go around and say ” I’m a designer ”
I met a punch of great developers, I realized that knowing five programming languages is not enough excuse to go around and say “I’m a developer”..
I met some Business folks, I learned that it’s not always true that business men is the most stupid people among the company team..
I met some kids -from the prospective of other- who are doing business already, so I learned that I need to change the way I learn..
Here is a list of things I learned at SWK
1- Nice people exists.
2- Team work is essential.
3- Entrepreneur can start from nothing but an idea.
4- women also can be entrepreneurs BTW they deal with coins better than men 🙂
5-Off-course MVP and the Business model are important but the value of the Business itself is more important.
that wasn’t the fun part the fun part was:
1- Learned how to sleep while standing.
2- Learned how to stand while sleeping.
3- Learned how to eat and think about something else other than eating.
4- Learned how to helpful it is to have a break of fun while working.
5- Learned how important it is to back up every thing u have in a flash desk.
6- Learned how to use a camera properly.
but still I’d say I learned that I still need to learn..
