“Discoveries can take various shapes and forms. On average, they take about four to six weeks. In situations when they could take less time, like 2-3 weeks, is dependent on the level of preparation that the client has put to date around that idea.” [03:39]
“80-90% of the time, every product idea that you already have has already been done. And so, why try to go and reinvent the wheel as well when you could go and study the competitors. You could look at the market, you could do a tear down of like user flows or existing competitor solutions to see how they did it.” [07:43]
“The more, kind of like, engagement you have with your users at the very beginning all the way through to launch and then post-launch via these communities is something that a competitor cannot go and replicate. That becomes, in many ways, your IP.” [13:01] Follow Aram Melkoumov
