MEINE PERFEKTE WG
ALUMNI INSIGHTS WITH MICHAEL SCHRAMM, CEO OF MEINE PERFEKTE WG
“The Parship for shared apartments” – We are bringing together people who want to live together and share apartments based on personality matching.
WHAT PROBLEM DO YOU SOLVE?
What we’re doing is using a personality matching up front so that you have kind of a filter, or a pre-selection of people that really fit your needs and expectations of a person whom you want to share your shower with for the next 12 months.
HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH THE IDEA?
It was almost two years ago when I joined a startup weekend, where this idea was brought up. There were 11 people working on this and 3 of them started to make a concept out of it. I’m now the one who founded the company and turned it into a business.
WHAT ARE YOUR LESSONS LEARNED?
Select very carefully with whom you start a business. You need to find co-founders or cooperation partners and you need to select them early, because you’re very dependent of them later on.
WHAT ARE YOU MOST PROUD OF?
I’m very proud that only within one year I’m a person who really created a product, founded a company and is out on the market.
WHAT IS THE MOST VALUABLE LESSON OF YOUR STARTUP LIVE EXPERIENCE?
It brought me team members and I met a very good mentor there, who I’m still meeting once a month to review my concept.
HOW DO YOU PREPARE FOR A PITCH?
I write down three messages, three bullets answering the question I would ask the audience one week later: “What will you remember of my pitch?”. Every sentence and slide that I prepare I challenge on these main messages and these three bullets. Then decide if it’s really necessary to put these in the slides or in my presentation.
