    5 Startup Lessons Learned In 2012 – From Idea To Launch

    As a young company, we faced incredible challenges in the journey from idea to launch; we lost an early potential co-founder, found a replacement, we started building a site only to have to scrap it and build in a new language, we won a demo competition without a real demo, we recruited several to work with us and lost a few along the way.

    Get Thee To A Hackathon!

    A high-pressure cooker for startup ideas, many women have attended – and won – hackathons.

    By Tricia Rampe (Founder & CEO, GetArtUp)

    The idea for GetArtUp was conceived months ago when I pondered whether art was a market ripe for the collaborative consumption model that has worked well for startup companies like Airbnb and Getaround.

    After discussing the idea of renting art on a monthly subscription basis with art industry friends, I received great feedback and was suggested to pitch it at a local hack-a-thon. To pursue the project more seriously and seek co-founders, I attended the Women 2.0 Startup Weekend in 2011 and the rest is history.
