Clubhouse Links: Why non-technical Founders make great tech Founders

Clubhouse-session-non-technical-founders

Another great Clubhouse session with the team and some great guests - thanks to you all! Here are the links to all the things that were mentioned during the session:

Where can non-technical Founders go to learn more about product and tech language, processes etc and meet potential co-founders?


Lean Startup

A must-read for all potential and future Founders

YSYS

A great community in which you can learn about the space and meet people - including potential Co-Founders.

Y Combinator Startup School

Free to join and they recently added a Co-Founder matching service. The next intake is on its way but you can access the curriculum via the link above in the meantime.

Founder + Lightning resource hub

We've compiled a whole bunch of useful resources here and are always adding more.

Spark Micro-incubator

A cheeky bit of self-promotion here but Sam Dickie (one of the speakers on the session) runs this micro-incubator programme for people who are looking for early-stage guidance without committing the time (and equity) required of a traditional incubator approach.


How can non-technical Founders get started without handing cash or equity over to a partner, whether a co-founder, agency, or other?


Tech businesses are businesses, and don't forget it. You can often put together a Proof of Concept or even get to revenue without writing a line of code.

Smoke Testing

We put together this guide on Smoke Testing with a comparison sheet so you can select the method(s) that would work for you.

NoCode.tech

Our very own Sam Dickie built and sold this business a few years back to help non-technical Founders identify and learn how to use the right no-code tools to build their own software.

WeLoveNoCode

Recently featured on Product Hunt, WeLoveNoCode is a team of NoCode developers that builds NoCode solutions fast: automation, integrations, web and mobile apps, chatbots, and much more.

(note - we do the same thing at Founder + Lightning for founders if needed as part of their long-term product roadmap)

Balsamiq

Software designed to enable anyone from a non-technical Founder to a UI/UX Designer to put together their own low-fidelity wireframes.

Adobe XD

Wireframing software that's built for UI/UX Designers but (apparently) not too difficult for us mere mortals to use ourselves.

If we've missed anything, let me know.  If you're curious about what we do and how we might be able to help you, ping us using the contact form here.

See you at 1pm next Wednesday!
