How should you build your first startup software product?

How are entrepreneurs getting software built for their startups this year?

Does the tech stack matter? Offshore, nearshore, or US-based teams? No code?

In this Ask an Expert in-depth video interview, I ask software development expert Vincent Serpico the 10 most common questions I hear from entrepreneurs who want to build a software product for their startup or small business.

  • What are the ways entrepreneurs are getting software products built these days?
  • What about no-code software tools?
  • How do I know if my software idea is a good one?
  • How much should I spend to get a sellable first product built?
  • What are the steps involved to develop a new software product?
  • How are founders funding this software development?
  • What are the most common pitfalls to avoid?
  • Do the technology stack and code language matter?
