The software engineer who wants you to scale before you’ve reached 500 users.

Building technology that you don’t know you need yet is like studying for a calculus exam when you’re majoring in art.

Instead of wasting time and money scaling your MVP when you don’t even know what your product is yet, focus on figuring out what your product actually is, and providing value to your users on a one-on-one basis. That’s how you go from 1 user to 10, then from from 10 users to 50, and so on.

When there isn’t enough demand yet, don’t try to supply for more than you have. It’s a total waste of all your resources. — Dust’s mission is to build a future where the world can launch 10,000 startups every day. We’ll achieve this by designing powerful software and services that let people launch, grow and fund their startups faster and cheaper than ever.
