Oh yes. We had the feeling since the first day…and the project just validated a few assumptions. Last year, together with Filipe and Joana, we opened a fish shop in the center of Lisbon. Our studied company is “almost” a partner of this project since they are our main seller and we are becoming after 6 months one of their biggest clients. Family business…totally innovative!

After spending the monday developing tools our Tuesday was simply crazy…Visiting “Mercado da Ribeira” for the second time in a week. Meeting in the morning and visit to the fish shop. Visiting the “amadora market”. Meeting in Lisbon to evaluate a possible cooperation with another company. Weekly meeting with Sodomar team…redefining new tools…Ufff…
This picture is similar to another one we posted about a week ago…but it’s not the same. To be more precise this was the 3rd order. It’s the 3rd time we distribute fish to new clients in less than a week. This test for a new distribution channel is working. In a week we will prototype another idea in a market. We will explore new ways of selling fish directly to the public and we are going to apply some of the crazy ideas generated in the “facebook brainstorm session” we did a few days ago.
Sunday night still on time to make some minor changes in the presentation. Finding the right tone.
We went back in time in this blog to see when had we started to test out 1st prototype. It was 10/11 days ago. And guess what? It still needs some refinements – we need to make sure that everything will work beautifully and we will change some procedures in the next few days – but it is working . The good news is that, after 10 days we have 5 new clients and…we are selling FISH my friends. We are selling fish.
Next week we have to hope for more.
