Why does our company love working with entrepreneurs, startups, and small businesses? Because we established this company as entrepreneurs! Our team has been working together to solve problems since we were elementary school students, and have always found passion in helping people achieve their goals – no matter how challenging the problem may appear to be. We started Winnona Partners not knowing very much about the world of app development, but through years of trial and error, failure and success, we have been able to accomplish feats we thought would have been impossible when we founded this company in 2014. Through building projects of all different sizes and working closely with diverse clients, we have received a priceless crash-course in mobile app development and consulting that allows us to assist our clients on a daily basis. We love working with entrepreneurs because you too, have a passion, and are so determined to make your dream become a reality that you will let nothing will stand in your way!
Acting On The Entrepreneurial Vision
Are you someone who was never satisfied with the status quo of “just find a job after you graduate and stay with it until you retire”? Neither were we! As an entrepreneur you have found a problem in your everyday life or a need in your community and thought, “there’s got to be a better way to do this!” That core frustration and need to correct it is the entrepreneur vision. Chances are if something is frustrating you or just seems too obvious to be something that doesn’t exist already, you’re not alone in thinking that! However, there is one major thing that separates you from everyone else who is thinking about the same problem or need: Action.
Having the vision to consider possible solutions is a great first step, but in order to truly start solving a problem and satisfy that frustration you’re feeling you must take action. What do I mean by “take action”? Taking action can be as simple as starting to ask your friends or neighbors how they feel about the problem you are interested in solving. Without exposing your idea for a solution, you can gauge their responses to determine if they share your same need or frustration. In addition to chatting with your friends or neighbors, you can start searching the app stores and online to see who else has identified this need, and see if there are any similar platforms that already exist. Remember that even if you find a company or service that offers something similar, there is no singular end-all solution. There are many approaches that can be taken to help solve your problem, and no company or individual will come up with and develop an identical solution to yours! Once you’ve done your initial research, you can always contact us for more advice on next steps or how to get started with developing a mobile app solution.
Drive, Persistence, and Perseverance
Another reason we love hard-working entrepreneurs is due to their sheer drive, persistence, and perseverance. To some people, this type of attitude may come across as ‘hard-headed’, but those may be the same people who are working for someone else at a nine-to-five job five days a week. We love collaborating with entrepreneurs who are willing to do whatever it takes to get a job done, despite factors that may try to prevent them from doing so. While hearing an outsider’s critiques is always a good idea, don’t take them too seriously if they tell you “that idea will never work“. These people can’t predict the future, and they might not even have enough foresight to imagine the type of solution you have already envisioned! If you are someone who has the drive to act on your vision, the persistence to see a project through, and the perseverance to work hard despite initial rejection or aversion to your cause, we are the mobile app team for you!
The world of technology is constantly changing and evolving. Apple and Google push changes overnight, social trends can lead to major innovations in UI/UX design preferences, and Amazon Web Services (AWS) introduces new features on a regular basis. As an entrepreneur, it is up to you to stay on top of trends and needs in your respective industry, just as it is our job to stay on top of changes in technology standards and policies. In such a diverse space, there is always room to grow and new skills to acquire. The Winnona Partners are a small, but agile team of entrepreneurs and lifelong learners. Like you, we understand that there is not a “one size fits all” approach to problem solving, and that’s why our technology is built to match your business needs, not the other way around. Our in-house developers build custom software based on your business needs, implementing effective solutions that our whole team understands. Entrepreneurs have the unique ability to identify problems or needs and come up with solutions, and we are here to help you develop the technological platform necessary to enact those solutions.
