Why Unmet Needs?
Why Not Focus on Wants?
Highest Net promoter score. Biggest disaster?
We are currently seeking startups focused on meeting an unmet need.
Not want or love.
Lots of paying customers loved Webvan (great referral scores) and they just bled money.
We don't like most apps, event planning startups, social media, chat bots, etc.
Anything at peak hype we’re likely to want to avoid. See Gartner hype cycle graph on the right.
If you meet an unmet need, you can increase prices without losing total revenue (even though you lose some customers). You don’t have to raise prices - I own Amazon stock - but I want to know you can.
