Abhineet Kumar is the founder of rocketfood.co and is passionate about public speaking, entrepreneurship and community-building.
Zach Kahn, my friend and co-intern at iStrategyLabs while talking about his current internship at Harry’s summed it up aptly:
I’m learning tons about product development, supply chain operations, and distribution — it’s crazy how many small, moving parts go into making what appears to be a pretty simple, straightforward business and product. definitely starting to appreciate the complexity of hardware-based startups much more now.
I am sure the whiteboard pic below will give you a faint idea of what Zach meant:
That’s a whiteboard at the rocketfood HQ. The last time Anurag counted there were 87 items on that list. I’m sure more were added after that.
Its a list of things we have to take care of before we launch on this 15th which doesn’t include goals we have already met.
I very clearly remember that when we had finished building this to-do board, we both had sat down quietly for a moment amazed at the numerous things which go behind launching a foodtech startup. And, I am sure each one of you would have experienced the same while building yours. If you are yet to start up, brace yourself for one hell of a ride where you may forget to call your girlfriend but would make sure you call your vendors to check for how your order’s coming.
