RAINE: What tactics do you use to get your creative juices flowing?

ECORECO: We always organize road trips for the whole creative team to go to Las Vegas conferences and trade shows together, via our EcoReco minivan or truck. When you have many creative guys getting stuck with each other, uninterrupted for 8 to 12 hours, something cool and crazy is going to come out.

RAINE: What is an impactful mantra that inspires you?

ECORECO: Be the change you wish to see in the world.

RAINE: What ideas could you recommend to rising entrepreneurs in how they can finance their dreams?

ECORECO: Try to use your own money to fund your project initially. It would keep you honest and help you learn the skills to properly budget, allocate resources economically, and set realistic milestones to monitor your progress.

RAINE: What was the biggest lesson learned in leading or influencing a team that you still use today?

ECORECO: Give people chances to make mistakes. Talented people are valued more for their growth than the immediate financial compensations they will return.

RAINE: Is their a philosophy or culture you believe in when seeking talent to surround yourself with?

ECORECO: As a CEO & Co-founder, my job is to find people that have more talent than me in their specific spikes. The ceiling of a start-up is definitely the vision of the leader and his/her ability to accept good advice and to work with people smarter than him or her.

RAINE: What separates you or your brand from the pack?

ECORECO: We create the best user experiences for future urban transportation, not just products.

RAINE: Explain how the creative entrepreneur lifestyle differs from a 9-5 lifestyle?

ECORECO: What is work/life balance?

RAINE: What words of wisdom could you share with other creative entrepreneurs?

LINE DOCK | Smart Laptop Power Bank

LINE DOCK | Smart Laptop Power Bank

RAINE: What are the things that spark your creative process?

LINE DOCK: Our creative process is constant motion and travelling is what gets our creative juices flowing. When you travel, you get to experience new ways of living, habits and different perspectives. A same product can be perceived and used very differently across countries and travelling helps us a lot when it comes to looking for new inspiration.

RAINE: Share a mantra that is important for your brand.
LINE DOCK: Technology and design are on equal terms.

RAINE: What are the best ways to finance your dreams?
LINE DOCK: I guess there is no secret sauce when it comes to financing your next big dream. However, crowd funding has become a very popular way to get things started when you have a product you’re ready to launch on the market and it’s fantastic. It helps you not only get the first interaction with the real world but it’s an amazing opportunity to learn from the audience, understand what your customers want and where your value proposition lies. It’s also a great way to assess whether there is a market potential for your product, which in turn makes it easier when it comes to raise capital to finance your dream. Business plans and market studies aren’t convincing enough nowadays. You have to show traction and tangible results.

RAINE: When leading a team, what are some lessons learn that you can pass on?
LINE DOCK: The biggest lesson learned is I think resilience and the fact that nothing never happens as predicted. There is a quote from Torquil Campbell which captures it pretty well : “I think you have to make concessions in life. One of the most frustrating things about getting older is (you realize) the reason you have a plan is so you can see everything it isn’t. The plan never works. Something happens and you adjust to it and you adapt to it and you accept it and you keep going, but that’s not the plan.”
