Behind the Door of Making Ambee 2.0

Lessons learned

  1. As a CEO, I should have been more technically advanced since it’s essential to have more control. Nevertheless, I believe it is good to trust the people we work with because nothing will work without trust. However, I believe Git control is a must for every founder of a small startup. That alone could have saved the Goldee app. CONCLUSION: Founders, have Git version control from day 1 on your local machine too!
  2. While all the people involved with Goldee added their value, having them aboard consumed much of the funds. On the other hand, Goldee didn’t generate any cash to make up for it since it was a free app. CONCLUSION: A. Start a project with as few people as possible. B. Start monetizing from day 1. C. In most cases, it’s best to do both (A and B).
