Must Read: Never underestimate the power of having the right idea at the right time. This story epitomizes the value of product/market fit. LaunchMBA has gone from zero to over $3000 in 6 weeks from a Twitter thread. The basic idea is to join a community to help you launch 12 startups in 12 months. The first 20 members paid $99, after that it’s $499. It’s a simple, yet brilliant idea that has gotten lots of promotion online.
It’s takes trending ideas like the “no code” and “open startup” movements and it combines it with Pieter Levels’s 12 Startups, 12 Months project that received a lot of press. Add in a great name that effectively communicates the idea, “LaunchMBA” and it’s a recipe for virality. If any of these startups in the first cohort start making serious money, I can see this community getting very big. Multiple newsletters have promoted the venture already so the idea definitely has traction. I love it!
