About this episode

My guest this week is Neil Shah, a co-founder of ThinkNimble. Neil is a serial entrepreneur and technology expert and ThinkNimble is a software development agency that helps startups and socially-focused companies grow and scale.

As the show has expanded its reach, the demographic that we reach has shifted some as well. Within the last few months I have had some very early-stage founders reach out to me with some very specific questions, and many of them have been tactical in nature.

Questions like:

  • What does product-market fit really look like?
  • Are Facebook Ads still as beneficial to the startup as they used to be?
  • Are subscription-based businesses as great as they sound?
  • How can I acquire my first 1,000 customers for my SaaS solution?

Yet, despite the various questions I receive is some variation of “How can I launch a technical startup if I’m not a technical person?” Well, that is the exact question that Neil and I discuss in this week’s episode.

In this episode, you'll hear:

  • The reality of thinking that you are “non-technical”
  • Common misconceptions that non-technical founders get hung up on
  • How to think about your budget when building a technical solution
  • Can no-code solutions help you get to market
  • How you can move forward on your technical solution
