Developing your startup idea is difficult enough. When you start your own company, you need to think about so many things and make many crucial decisions. Sometimes it is better to ask for an advice from people who have already done it right. Gavrilo Bozovic from Teleport, the first Swiss company accelerated by 500 Startups in San Francisco, told us his secret.

I did my first startup weekend in 2011 in Lausanne. I was at first scared by the short time available. Would we be able to do anything significant? I was amazed that we actually were. The best advice I ever got for getting stuff running quickly is to Do Things That Don’t Scale, as goes the title of Paul Graham’s article. Don’t worry about the scale and just do it, put your product out into the world and test it. It was great at startup weekend, and it’s a piece of advice I’ve used daily while building Teleport.

Teleport creates immersive, smooth and user-manageable virtual tours, for real estate, universities, and more. As founder and CEO, Gavrilo supervised the development of growth of the company. He built the MVP of the application, hired the team, raised funding and grew the company to 8 people, becoming the very first Swiss startup accelerated by 500 Startups.

Meet Gavrilo in person during Startup Weekend Zurich, Food & Hospitality and maybe he will share his other successful secrets 🙂
