ScaleUp Radio

Feb 22, 2023

Have you ever had a great idea for a business and then being put off by maybe not having the coding skills or the technical skills to be able to build whatever you need to do, or finding someone that can do it for you and being confident that it's not going to cost you thousands of pounds? Well, Simon Jenner is the co founder of million labs, and that's the challenge that they help startup founders overcome and I talk with him on ScaleUp Radio.

Million Labs use the No Code platform to help founders to get to their minimum viable product or MVP as quickly as possible as cheaply as possible. And they'll even potentially provide a little bit of seed investment to help the founder on their way.  Sounds like the dream product and service for a budding tech entrepreneur, doesn't it? 

So I had a fascinating discussion with Simon about his business. He only started four years ago, and the story of how they started it was another one of these where they started out doing something else that didn't quite work. And they're now supporting something like 70 or 80 founders every month in getting them off the ground to that MVP. 

And in the course of doing that, they're really starting to get beneath the skin and understand which founders are likely to succeed, and perhaps which ones aren't. 

And there's some great tips from Simon if you're considering a new product or new service. There's lots of advice here about how you can make sure that you don't end up going down a path that is just never going to give you any return. 

So a really interesting interview, I know you're going to love it. So let's go across to Simon for the rest of that story. If you want to test your strategic thinking then why not take our score app around levelling up your strategic thinking?  It will only take a few minutes and the link is in the show notes.
