6 Tips for Startup Success From MIT Bootcamp for Entrepreneurs

Former Olympian Inga Stasiulionyte shares the main lessons that she learned about starting a successful business.

by Carolyn M. Brown

Reports show that at least eight out of 10 businesses fail within a year after opening, and roughly 96% will close in 10 years. This summer, MIT held its regular Global Entrepreneurship Bootcamp, where entrepreneurs from around the world underwent the most challenging week of their lives while learning how to build a lasting and successful business. MIT organizes these bootcamps with the goal of creating more stable jobs. When businesses fail, it’s not only the owners that suffer financially and emotionally; when people lose their jobs, vendors lose their clients.

Inga Stasiulionyte is a former Olympian, mentor, and an MIT bootcamp award-winner for Onbotraining, her online startup for mind training. Here, Stasiulionyte shares the main lessons she’s learned from her MIT startup bootcamp experience.

1. Learn to Achieve Perfection

Everything is possible, even at the highest level. When running a 100-meter sprint, your body will function at its best in the shortest amount of time. However, you have to keep moving faster and faster without losing quality, in order to succeed. The more we learn about how we function, the more we can challenge our capabilities and standards. It all depends on mastering your thoughts, actions, discipline, and planning.

Your Brand is Your Promise! (So What Are You Promising?)

This article is written and owned by Phil Davis

When people mention the word “brand” they usually mean a well known, well defined company. That’s why consumers frequently mention names such as Target, Rolex, Apple, BMW and others who have done an excellent job in crafting an image and sticking with it. Buyers know what to expect from these companies, and as long as these companies meet that expectation, they will continue to imprint their brand in the minds of our their audience. It’s pretty simple really, if you just keep in mind these two principals.

Principal One: Know your promise.

As amazing as this may seem, most companies don’t really know what it is they are promising their clients. That’s why they have weak brands. They may have mission statements, and can spout off why everyone should use their product or service, but really it’s just a rambling list. Out of fear of losing audience, most companies will try to compete on price, quality and service… and that’s a recipe for disaster. Who wants to buy a watch from the Discount Overnight Rolex store? If you try to go after all three areas you end up muddied in the mind of the consumer, who is trying to put you in a box. And in this case… that’s a good thing!

A mental “box” is not that different from a set of mail room boxes. The customers gets all these incoming “messages” and has to sort them all day. The easier you make it for them to sort your company, and put it in a category, the easier it will be for them to recall it when needed. Try this… think of a fast place to eat. How about the best tasting food? And finally, the place you go if you really want to impress someone? You can probably think of each of these categories rather quickly. And chances are, these companies are more than happy to fill that niche without trying to become much more.

Take a moment and write out in two or three sentences (more if you’re feeling inspired) exactly what your brand promises. It will usually fall under three main categories… quality, service or price. But there are nuances. Ben & Jerry’s image contains both a quality message and a social message… one of commitment to the community and environment.

Principal Two: Never violate Principal One.

Once you have firmly established your promise in the minds of consumers, make sure every move you make conforms to that promise. Coke was fine to come out with Diet Coke, Cherry Coke and a host of other flavor variations (brand extension) but they completely missed the mark when they introduced NEW Coke. People believed in Coke, identified with Coke and it was a part of their history. New Coke was seen as a betrayal of the brand itself, a vote of no confidence in their core product. “What’s wrong with the original Coke?” was the immediate question that popped up in most minds. That’s why is so important to know what it is, and why it is, that people buy from you and believe in you.

Know your promise and keep your promise. Pretty simple? Yet it will go a long ways toward making your company resonate with your customer on a deep and lasting level. And that’s a promise.
