7 Rules for software start-ups

Ajit Nazare at Kleiner Perkins has 7 rules for software start-ups they consider funding.

KP’s 7 rules for start-ups

* Instant Value to customers – solve a problem or create value with the first use

* Viral adoption – Pull, not push. No direct sales force required

* Minimum IT footprint, preferably none. Hosted SaaS is best.

* Simple, intuitive user experience – no training required.

* Personalized user experience – customizable

* Easy configuration based on application or usage templates

* Context aware – adjust to location, groups, preferences, devices, etc.
