All in uppercase. Yes. I am yelling at you!

One week a go I built IHaveAnIdea.Rocks, a platform that helps future entrepreneurs to validate their ideas.

With immediate feedback a future entrepreneurs can save a lot of time on building his project

I’ve been in the Start-Up universe for the last 3 years. No, I am not rich and I am not a very successful entrepreneur, but in this years i saw a lot of Start-Up come and go and very few successful projects.

If there is one thing I can say to you is: DON’T START A START-UP if you believe that only with an idea you could be the next Facebook/Google/Apple.

In the last week i launched my platform on reddit and a lot of people wrote this kind of stuff to me:

If you think that someone can steal your project just posting your idea online, well…DON’T START A START-UP!

You are not ready and probably you will never be!

Do you think that Facebook was a new idea? Google was the first search engine? Do you think that Travis Kalanick and Garrett Camp were the first one to have in mind an app like Uber?

Idea is 1%, execution is 99%.

If you still believe that your idea is super awesome that you will never pitch without an NDA, I wish you good luck!

PS: THIS and THIS great Medium post explain the same stuff that I do, maybe in a different way.
