Here are the things I found interesting on the web this week.
// PITCHING THINGS
Getting your pitch deck right is essential if you are going to attract investment and interest in your idea. Practice makes perfect, but so do these tips on what to include.
// BUSINESS TOOLS THINGS
One of the great things about being a startup is your flexibility to adopt new technology to support your own business needs. Here are a few new products that can help you.
// UX THINGS
An overview of what A/B testing is for and how to use it to find out how you should be developing your product.
Nice insight into the day-to-day experiences of two designers working for the world’s leading e-commerce site for ‘microentrepreneurs’.
// INNOVATION THINGS
Filed under ‘inspiration for entrepreneurs’, sometimes the simplest solutions are the ones that will change the world.
// BOTS THINGS
It seems to me that MENA region is ripe for chatbot adoption. Here’s a nice article about how this UX designer approached building one for Mums.
And if you’re into chatbots, here’s the latest slew of new bot ideas coming through Product Hunt.
// REMOTE TEAMS THINGS
Spoiler: 1) communicate; 2) have a design system; 3) be user-centric; 4) involve stakeholders.
Design systems are a relatively new concept but are quickly being recognised as essential if you have a remote team, and even if you don’t. This is a comprehensive guide to what should go in yours.
// BULLET PROOF SPIDER WEB THINGS
Completely off-topic, and freaky as hell. These webs are bullet proof, people. Be afraid.
Compiled with ❤️ in Qatar
Every week I read stuff on the web that I think would help Qatar-based tech startups design and build brilliant products. I save up all the interesting things and publish them here, and send them out via tinyletter.com/jennyellenbrown
