"Designing for context is easier than you think" - NEXT Digest #11
By NEXT Amsterdam • Issue #11
This week we did our first braintrust session at Rockstart’s Digital Health program. The great thing is that we learn as much about (digital) health care, as the startups learn from us. We also signed our first US-based startup! But more about that soon.

Context is king, but how can we incorporate it into our services? Combine and be relevant, it can be really simple. 
Demo Day is very anti-lean. You only get one shot. But you can apply the same lean principles to fund-raising. From smoke tests to building funnels.
No, you’re not going to bad-mouth them. It is actually a good thing you are not the only one in your space!
Bonus
For those who missed it, Amsterdam is doing pretty well as startup city!
