Thanks a ton @pjbouten
Will work to tell the grand vision to Early prospects and customers.
We are sprinting hard to release the private beta by Oct 15th. Will keep the forum and you updated.
Would be happy to send you a demo product video. Will focus on framing the grand vision.
Hey @pjbouten, thanks a lot for sharing your experience!
We’re building Passionfroot, an operating system for creators to manage their business. We’re based in Europe and raised our $ 3.4m pre-seed round from Creandum and US angels such as Vlad (Webflow) and creators like Ali Abdaal.
As we’re creating a new category and as the creator economy is global and mostly online, we’re building from Day 1 a global company and product that helps creators monetize around the world. This brings a lot of complexities especially in terms of payments and taxes as our early users are based both in Europe and the US and deal with cross-border transactions.
What are Do’s and Dont’s for European startups who have a global ambition and build products for a global customer base from Day 1. Anything you would do differently?
Thanks @pjbouten! Love how you’ve thought about incrementally shaping a category with a focus on product and service, and only then thinking about getting the message out there vs the other way around. And totally agree on the distinctions and overlaps both self-serve and enterprise motions share.
Thanks, PJ, for taking the time to address questions from the great vantage of shaping Showpad into a global, enterprise SaaS brand!
And thanks, as ever, to Relay founders for their deep, probing questions!
