We are Alin and Andrea, proud creators of this venture.
START-UPS IN A BOX is the result of our own journey in starting-up not just this business, but several other successful and unsuccessful.
We wanted flexibility in our lives, do what we like doing, and if possible put those Master degrees hanging in our walls (accumulating loan payments) to use. To be honest, not even a Maters degree prepares you for what the reality and hard work that starting a business can be.
We have learned that the key to not giving up on failed ideas is to enjoy what you are doing and be open to changes along the way.
From every business attempt, you will learn so many things that immediately a new idea will come up. We like to say “failures are the fuel to your entrepreneur engine”.
It’s not about money or connections — it’s the willingness to outwork and outlearn everyone… And if it fails, you learn from what happened and do a better job next time.”
We made many costly mistakes and had long time-consuming learning curves, many which were not necessary in order to succeed. Although it is important to put all your effort on a start-up, there are things you can delegate so you can focus on those that you must do on your own. We developed this program based on what can be delegated, what worked for us, and what worked for those we have helped.
