App creators need to test their ideas and launch their products as soon as possible. Tech moves fast. Users change. Design sprints & no-code tools can help reduce risk and find the right product-market fit for your app.

Startups, investors, companies, entrepreneurs, and creators in general waste a lot of time and money on ideas that haven’t even been tested by a single user. There are hundreds of thousands of apps in every store that have a really low download count. Behind each of those apps, you’ll find…

With minimal programming notions (and sometimes not even that) we can build web pages for our business, automate processes or create mobile apps.

Of course, these tools do not replace developers at all. In fact, if you are a software developer you should start to handle them. In most cases, they can help you create quick prototypes or come in handy for clients or projects that don’t have or need a huge budget…

New products are useless if they don’t fill a need. With no-code prototypes, you can quickly test your idea without a massive investment.

recently did a report on the Top 20 Reasons Startups Fail and the number one reason at 42% is no market need.

What does this mean? Basically, 42% of startups fail because they don’t solve a big enough market problem. It’s not about creating the next Airbnb with…

When you are an entrepreneur –or are working with one– and want to build a digital product, you need to build a prototype first. That’s a golden rule. I’ve been working on the creation of digital products for a while now and I am 100% sure that a good prototype…

Last week I finished reading How to do Nothing by Jenny Odell. The book caught my attention because of several reasons: 1. Great title 2. Beautiful cover 3. I’ve read a really interesting interview with the author on . Then I realized it’s already a New York Times best-seller. She began writing it after got viral.

How to do Nothing is a book that tries to redefine what we think of as productivity and shows us a new way to connect with our environment. The notion we have of productivity is closely linked to the idea that as we spend more and more time working we’ll…

If you’re building a digital or physical product, working on a business model, or defining an innovation project, a Design Sprint will make things easier for you. It’s a kick-off process that will allow you to validate ideas and compress months of work into a few weeks and guarantee you and your team are on the right track.

The default product development cycle doesn’t check how customers will react until after the launch. With Design Sprint, teams validate ideas fast before investing time and money to build them.
