A 14-day incubation period is one of the “superpowers” of this virus. It makes me think about parallels of startups in stealth mode as well.
As a stealth startup:
How can you spread before being noticed?
- How do get past when your adversaries (competition) start to notice and start to respond?
- What strategies can you test now that you won’t be able to test when you get noticed?
- How you extend the time you’re doing something to gain more traction, i.e. extend the incubation period?
- What are ways that I can increase the virality of my product / offering? (hat tip to Seth Godin)
Why not turn this into an opportunity mimic nature a bit?
