Insights From the Founder of SaaS Startup Allbetter

Tarik Khribech, Founder of Allbetter.

Any entrepreneur can tell you, launching a startup is a learning process. Therefore, one of the best things you can do prior to launching a startup of your own is to learn from those who have blazed the trail. We were fortunate enough to hear some valuable insights during our interview with Tarik Khribech of Allbetter that will inspire, motivate, and teach aspiring and established entrepreneurs alike.

What advice do you have for aspiring entrepreneurs?

“I think entrepreneurs often feel the pressure to get everything done by themselves. I know I certainly did. But this isn’t always possible. If I could start my business again, I would have found a graphic designer first—someone who has more expertise and could help me in an area I was less familiar with. Starting small is good, as is asking questions and getting in touch with other individuals who have also started businesses to get prepared before launch. But it’s important to remember that relying on other professionals or just family and friends is helpful too.”

What is your advice for entrepreneurs in your industry specifically?

“When I first started, I made the mistake of focusing too much on the product and not enough on the reason I developed the app: the people. Since then, I’ve changed to be more people-focused to ensure that the work I am doing is helping my target audience and understanding how I can adapt to become more relevant and helpful in their lives.”

What is your advice for coming up with a unique startup idea?

“Don’t wait. Get up, and get at it. Too often, entrepreneurs wait around for the perfect design, or the perfect idea, or the perfect wording. If you wait too long, your opportunity is going to pass you by. You need to get up every morning with intention and get to work.”

What is your advice for overcoming challenges and failure?

“The life lesson I tend to live by is ‘Get up, and do it.’ I could have just stayed in Morocco, where it was more comfortable or familiar, but I chose to get up and adventure to America for the chance to start my own company. I also could have continued working at a Fortune 100 company where my salary was safe or guaranteed, but I decided the risk and the opportunity were worth it. So many times, we tend to wait around or worry about what decision is right, but by changing our perspective to wake up in the morning and make the most out of the day, we can accomplish more than we realize.”

What is the biggest lesson you learned and what can aspiring entrepreneurs take from it?

“You get tested the most when it's time for you to elevate. Do not break.”
