What is Indix?
We organize, analyze and visualize the world’s product and product related information.
What’s your traction been like thus far?
We just launched our V1 product a few weeks ago and we have our first set of customers.
What do you know now that you wish you would have known when you started Indix?
That it takes longer than you would like, in order to do anything worthwhile. So patience is important in a startup, however contrary that might seem. Some things you can’t rush.
What’s a hypothesis that you’ve had that has failed? And how did you respond?
We initially considered a very low price for our product based on the hypothesis that it would attract more customers. But as we learned about what our customers wanted and that they were willing to pay for it, we realized that it was about value and not price. So we put our hypothesis aside, built more into the product to meet customers’ expectations. It took longer to get to V1 but it was worth the wait.
