This is about Preseed's own web product ideas getting translated to
Minimum Viable Products.


If you are an inspired hacker, hustler, or a designerwho could build with us web/mobile
products, dig this page and it's surrounding links very well.





Guiding Principle - Simplicity

Simple enough to be spoken about in 1 line. Simple enough to be scaled out of proportion with a very small team.

It takes a certain hippie like liberatedperspective to build businesses with simplicity as the guiding principle. That perspective leads us to two core values in our products -


Usability

This is where we spend most of our time. We keep it to what's needed and where it's needed. Nothing that is not needed will ever find its way into our products.

Design is more important than engineering in the consumer web space. One of the problems we see in this space in India is not of that of engineering. In fact India produces strong engineers. It's a problem of design, for India seriously lacks consumer web 'design' sensibilities. The reason stands - lack of geeks here marryingsome seriously cool people. We hope that someday we are able to teach that to India through our products.

Lean

We take it a step further. Lean is how we Live, let alone build stuff. We 'build, measure, learn, repeat'and never raise funds without setting it right.

Bootstrapping has its own entrepreneurial lessons that cannot be learnt without self experiencing it. We iterate, customer validate and reiterate. If we fail, we fail fast, we re-iterate even faster and all of that, at minimum cost implications. In short we make sure we customer validate the products before we look to move to the next steps of development. Shit gets done in least amounts of not only money but also time.

"Usability and the utility, not the visual design, determine the success or failure of a web-app. Since the visitor of the page is the only person who clicks the mouse and therefore decides everything, user-centric design has become a standard approach for successful and profit-oriented web design. After all, if users can’t use a feature, it might as well not exist." - Vitaly Friedman

"If you are not embarrassed by the first version of your product, you’ve launched too late." - Reid Hoffman
