How to launch a startup in one hour and iterate to scale

Stanley Tang, founder at restaurant delivery service Doordash covers how he tested the business with a website that took one hour to make, did things that didn't scale to get quality feedback, and then used that feedback to fully develop the startup.


1. Think of the simplest version of your product that you can launch within a day – it could just be a simple landing page, wireframe example of the website or prototype product made from cheap materials.

2. Push this prototype out until at least 10 people have used it.

3. Make sure there is a method of gathering their email address so you can follow up with them to learn how to improve and iterate the product.
