Just because they're bigger, doesn't mean you're out of luck.
Jeroen and I discuss how it’s possible to compete with much larger companies by getting crystal clear on the problem you’re solving for your clients and staying focused. Some key ideas from the interview include...
Find a problem you're passionate about. Don't fall in love with the solution.
Try it, nail it, build it... in that order. Don't skips any steps.
How do you go about building your product and your processes?
How do you make sure you consistently keep building that value?
How do you create a culture that encourages positive growth?
