Miles Burke joined us to share the growth journey of 6Q which was indeed weird. They built the first version in a day and had over 1000 users to deal with in the morning.

One big piece of advice                  

Spend time finding the ideal customer and understanding if your product can solve a problem for them. Once you’ve understood that you can solve a problem, make sure it’s a problem people are willing to pay to have solved. It’s better to have spent a few days talking to customers than developing something and figuring out that no one wants it.
