I started Smashcut to significantly improve the experience of online education - and specifically within the visual and media arts. With an explosion of demand for media content (across entertainment & business) the need for skilled creators has never been greater. But access to high-quality media creation education is extremely limited. Exacerbating this lack of access: these media-centrci programs have not moved online given the market has lacked online learning products that enable the teaching of highly collaborative, media-driven curriculums. We built Smashcut to make it possible to effectively teach and learn visual and media arts online
To quote T.S Elliot: Between the idea and reality falls the shadow. The space between vision and execution is simultaneously the most challenging and rewarding part of product and business development.
Lack of focus. Many startups try to execute on too many fronts. Consequently, most startups die of indigestion not starvation.
