In a previous interview, Snapchat co-founder Evan Spiegel explained how Snapchat came to be, saying, “Before we started Snapchat, we made this thing called ‘Future Freshman,’ which was designed to help kids to get into college, and it totally failed. We worked on it for a year and a half, and it just bombed.

Spiegel continued: “It was a very instructive experience for us because after that, rather than trying to make this really complicated and sophisticated software, we decided that we had to start with a simple concept, build it and see if people love it, then go from there.

Regarding Spiegel’s advice to start-ups, he said, “The most important thing for any start-up in particular is to just put one foot in front of the other and not get caught up in ‘I want to raise a lot of money first'”. ‘ or ‘I want to put together a business presentation first’ or ‘I want to build a great team first’. But really, the first and most important step is to serve the customer.
