LaunchBox halfway point: Hamal

“It’s hard to say if LaunchBox has been what my co-founder and I had expected. Mainly because as neither of us have had a StartUp before, or been in an accelerator programme, we didn’t really know what to expect. What I can say is that it has been enlightening, exciting and extremely challenging.

When we started out on Hamal, our venture, we didn’t know what we didn’t know. Through the incredibly steep learning curve that is entrepreneurship we’ve been able to turn some of those unknown unknowns into known unknowns. Which, we’ve come to find out, is an achievement in itself.

As a company, we’ve hit a number of milestones. Rapid prototyping has become second nature and we’ve built a network of potential customers, suppliers and other people who will become vital parts of our business’ ecosystem.

One piece of advice: Embrace being delusional, but make sure you recognise it.

Our experience so far in 5 words: A real Wild West adventure.”
