Walky: second meeting

Wednesday I had another meeting with an app developer. This time I had to drive a little bit further. The company is based in Heist-op-den-Berg. I’m sure most of you have not heard about this place before. You’ve probably heard about Antwerp which is quite near. Heist-op-den-Berg is a small town. Especially if you compare it to the city of Ghent, where I had to go last week.

We had a meeting at his home office which had a fantastic view.
We spoke about Walky and how I came up with the idea. Usually I explain Walky through a comparison with Sweatcoin. I’m always quite surprised almost no-one in Belgium knows Sweatcoin which is good for me. :)

So what is Walky again? In one sentence?
It’s a step-counter app that rewards individuals and groups with sustainable goodies.

Furthermore we talked about what I should do next. He suggested to make contact with companies who could be interested in working together. But first I should work more on the concept. They offered me a workshop that lasts a whole day where I would brainstorm with the manager and the UX designer of the company to perfect the idea. What customer segment should I target? What does the user want? How should the MVP look like?...
A very personal approach that I really like. This way I will have a strong case when I would go pitch to companies that are interested on forming partnerships.
The workshop costs a few thousand euros. A big investment that could or could not work out in the end but it’s something I’m really thinking about.

I also feel this company is more interested than the one I visited last week. I think they really want and would love to work with me.

I’m hoping my business coach or you guys have some advice for me.

common sense me says not many ideas turn into profits. to limit your risk and make the consultant put some skin in the game can you negotiate for service based on performance. For instance if they can get your idea up and running and you are earning revenue then they get paid. If no revenue less pay or no pay. Real world is base on results not how much time and effort I put in.
