This was again a day to remember!
In the morning I met with a group of great people who shared my passion for the project we’re working with. Two possible alternatives were discussed:
- Playing it safe
- Doing it big
Surprisingly we chose to pursue the latter strategy. The exact details are still open but I can already say that we will have a nationwide impact in the Finnish people during the spring.
Later in the day I contacted two people whom I know to be true professionals in their respective fields. I got really good feedback. The strategic decision we made in the morning makes our project just too awesome to ignore.
In the evening I participated in an event called the Aalto Social Impact. The project we’re working with is strongly social, ethical and ecological so it was well suited to be presented in this event. Although it clearly wasn’t the point of this particular event, I asked a permission to pitch my idea to the public and I have to say it became my best pitch so far.
All this takes our idea forward.
Having worked towards a single goal for over a month, it is increasingly easier to answer the obvious questions that our pitch raises in people. If our idea was easy to implement someone would obviously have done it a long time ago.
It all comes down to getting the users realize the awesomeness of helping each other.
