Key lessons:

– Great businesses are created by playing into market shifts
– Startups need sharp focus and positioning
– Run a well-designed proof of concept
– The founder is the best salesperson
– Conviction of the founding team

Watch out — this might well be the trillion dollar impact startup all of us have been looking for!
