KP’s 7 rules for start-ups (from Don Dodge at Microsoft)

* Instant Value to customers – solve a problem or create value with the first use
* Viral adoption – Pull, not push. No direct sales force required
* Minimum IT footprint, preferably none. Hosted SaaS is best.
* Simple, intuitive user experience – no training required.
* Personalized user experience – customizable
* Easy configuration based on application or usage templates
* Context aware – adjust to location, groups, preferences, devices, etc.
