Startup Idea: Blackbox flight recorder for startups

How do you figure out which events matter and which dont in your startup?

Some events in your startup journey are obviously huge. First version of product shipped. First customer payment. First hire. First funding (maybe). Others are more innocuous. They slide by many times without any fanfare. Like the first time a customer logs a complaint. There are many cynics who might say

“Yes, because if every second of your <startup> life isn’t documented then it doesn’t really exist, right?”

Yet those same cynics might not understand that most entrepreneurs dont know which seconds are important and which ones are not. Most of these are better evaluated in hindsight.

What if you could “record” your startup’s seconds? Automatically?

You actually can, if you use the Cloud – since everything in on the cloud its easy to record.

What’s needed is a “black box flight recorder for startups“.

It helps you “login” to all your cloud services and automatically categorizes these events into buckets.

Then it helps your figure out what triggers something.

It can be a huge help for incubators.

It could also help create a framework for decision making.

So, please – build one already.

    Sounds like a great idea to me, differentiating between the important and the unimportant when you are so involved in the day to day running of a startup as a new business owner is means they often miss important points.

    It’s not until they can take a step back and look at the big picture that you see these ‘small’ things were very important

    Not quite this level, but iDoneThis has completely changed the way we track progress and think through mistakes in our startup, and have even began to apply it to my personal health and budgeting as well.
