my Qoorio success story: group experience
While Qoorio is currently associated for knowledge sharing between two people, I found a case where I wanted to hack the system a bit and experiment how would knowledge sharing work with multiple people.
You see, while building our product once in a while we like to get out of our own juices and invite complete stranger to get some answers about user journey of buying new home. In this case the stranger was Danielius, charming and detail oriented Qoorio engineer. I just had to meet him because we share the same surname, we both code and wear glassses, and we have 100 Facebook friends in common, so I thought that we must be cousins or smth.
I also figured - he could also spice it up (no pun intented) our meeting by showing how to cook best burgers at home. So I reached out and asked if he could come over. He agreed and I went some grocery shopping to beef it up.
The results? First, the value of sharing knowledge was much higher, because he shared his authentic thoughts about questions we cared, and we could ALL interact and ask questions. That may also a be a problem - getting in front of group strangers might be humiliating, especially if you intravert. But I think Danielius held it well, right? :)
What went well? I think it was good decision to set up event in home environment, rather than in office, because it was more informal and allowed us more ways to engage and interact - in our case cook. Meeting new perspectives, learning new sills is something fun in general, and I believe the entire group enjoyed the experience and got inspired - wether its about burgers, or about real estate.
What I would do differently next time? First, I would add more structure. The more people, the more buzz and chaos, which you need to account for and add extra time. Second, I would also set up more context what is expected from us a group, and our guest upfront to reduce potential stress. We also had this fuzzy moment where it was not clear whether our official time was over or we should just continue hanging out.
And that was my group experience at Qoorio. What was your corkiest and the mos unique experience from Qoorio meetings?
What are the fundamental approaches for building consumer networks from the ground-up?
I listen a few times to an interview with Reid Hoffman, founder of LinkedIn. He spoke about many things, but one thing stroke me as an inspiration. I have decided to write down my thoughts so I could re-read them at any time later.
Raid spoke about a framework he used to operate the early stage of a social network such as LinkedIn. It is something I was looking for some time.
He says that not only VCs should have an investment thesis, but social entrepreneurs as well. So, what is this thesis?
1. A clearly articulated set of believes about the way the world is becoming.
2. Where would the role of your product or service role in that world be? How and why the world will benefit from your product or service?
3. What are you going successfully to do to enable that role?
It helps to decide whether to accelerate the growth, step back, do a micro/macro pivot, and make other decisions on the next bets of the company. At Qoorio, we already operate on "the next bet" principle, however, not in that sophisticated way, as he suggests.
The elements of this thesis may sound very abstract. And they should be, as the thesis itself is a set of answers to those questions put into a coherent story. For LinkedIn, that was the following on high-level:
1. Every professional should have a public identity.
2. That would make the world much better for everyone. For individuals, because they would be able to find better jobs. For companies, because they will have to become better employers, have more compelling missions, would be able to attract better talent. And for industries, because different companies will compete for talent.
3. LinkedIn had to get people to start establishing profiles and, most important, invent the way so that people would invite other people – the viral mechanism. And this viral mechanism is THE MOST important element of the business.
Such an investment thesis is the starting point of the company. Based on that, the company implements the product or service, the viral mechanism (which allows people to invite other people), and onboards the first users.
After that, it is usual that things don't work as expected. Based on all learnings, you tweak the thesis, replace false beliefs with what you have learned about the reality, and come up with an updated thesis.
Once you have an updated thesis, you tweak the product, viral mechanism, and onboard more new users again.
Then repeat the cycle again and again. Each iteration is an iteration of learning. The faster you iterate and learn, the better chances of success you have. That's why Raid argues that being able to learn fast is the key quality of the team of such environments of building social networks.
Thank you, Reid Hoffman, very insightful!
An open question to readers: what would motivate you to invite other people to Qoorio, and how Qoorio has to change so you will do that?

Technology removes barriers and distances between people and information.
So does Qoorio!
I met Yannick Oswald last week in Paris and I thought I would share why it was worth investing 97€ in a one-hour meeting.
Firstly, you may google all the information you need, but …
Think back to the last article read on the internet, or last book, or a quotation that deeply touched you or changed the way you had been thinking about life. It was wisdom that inspired you, that held so much promise. All you had to do was act upon this newfound knowledge and things would get easier, better, clearer or more empowering.
Now, how much of this knowledge is still at play – not just intellectually, but practically?
Did you become a better professional? Did you manage to solve any problems with this knowledge? Did you become a better leader?
Chances are, what you learned has withered, if it survived at all.
It‘s not that it wasn’t helpful. It just didn’t stick. Why is it so?
It is as simple, as it is: when you get information for free, it DOESN’T WORK !!!!
Secondly, the value of meeting people from a different field is the energetic value.
How many leaders of the world, how many books are repeating us?
• CLING TO PEOPLE WHO THINK PROGRESSIVELY.
• Get your advice from successful people.
• Take part in new groups.
• Mix with people of different occupational and social interests.
• Find friends who breath encouragement in your plans and ideas.
I can predict the future and to be almost certain that few years from now, one hour with Yannick will cost 1000 euros or even more. He is an incredible professional at his young age.
Your own perspective is what matters. Yannick was not afraid to invest a huge amount of money in Qoorio and to say “I believe into unbelievable.“
That’s why I was meeting him!
To get myself into that unbelievable energetic level!
And that’s the point of Qoorio and it’s team.
Those who believe that can get from this app a lot they get even more!
Stay tuned for new adventurous stories!!!
