I am an advertising entrepreneur running my own studio the last 4 years. We hit $1,00,000 last year. Now I would like to dab my hands in the tech space - a mobile app. I have an idea and like to pursue this as my second career. What are the initial first steps I need to take?
Of course you can, provided you surround yourself with the right people
AirBnB's founders were not programmers; they were design guys. Now, it's a billion dollar tech company. If you have a dream to build the next big app or web startup, you'll need to know what the journey entails. The things that no one will tell you about, that you can learn only through experience.
That being said, there are a few things you need to consider before you pursue this as a second career:
1.) Outsource or build the product in-house?
2.) Target the right market.
3.) Search for a technical cofounder
