    Any App Developers in Germany/ Europe?

    Hey guys! I'm looking for a co-founder for my app startup and thought a Fastlaner would be the ideal co-founder. If you have experience with Flutter or ReactNative, then we should get in touch and talk! :) Right now I have a prototype, a pitch deck and 2-3 interested investors who would be...

    Made a Product - Thinking if I should put in my money to make it better

    Hello everyone, I have been working on a website and an extension for several weeks now.

There are only...

    Starting an app development business

    I'm thinking of starting a mobile/web app development business or a software house. Software development is my main field of expertise and I want to leverage that. Initially, I want to focus on developing MVPs (Minimal Viable Products) for startups that have a relatively low budget (<10k). How...

    How would you build a city on top/under the water?

    Building houses on top/under the water would solve the housing problem, and if I won't be the one to build this company, then someone else will. In the next 30 years, it will probably be done. But where do you start if you have nothing but the idea, not even knowledge? I'm thinking MAYBE, I...

    $100m business idea. Need some advice on a life changing business prototype.

    A little background. I've been running a small Instagram agency for about 2 years now. Learned a lot about sales, marketing, failure and people in general in that time. It hasn't gone that well to be honest. Sure, it's a good side hustle but it's not really a fastlane business per se. It's more...

    Whos to blame? The CTO or the CMO?

    Funding for a "Not-Very-for-Profit" Startup

    I've seen a startup (Applied Physics or so), which gives scientific advice (for-profit), but also does pure research (advanced physics) and even gives grants (non-profit activities). So, did they collect their startup budget from some semi-investors and semi-philanthropists? And yes: I'd like to...

    What features should I promise on the landing page?

    I'm making a landing page for my start-up and I'm wondering if I should promise the main features that we aim to implement at some point in time (but will not be in the first MVP), or just the one main feature that will actually be offered in the MVP?

    How do you get partnership with brands/businesses when you're not even started yet?

    Not sure if I'm posting this in the right place. Let's pretend that a startup has a great and valid idea for a service. Thing is, in order to make this possibile, it needs to close parterships with other existing businesses. How do you get to those businesses and get those partnerships? I'll...

    What can YOU do to make a sale in 7 days?

    The main concept from “The 7-Day Startup” by Dan Norris is to launch in 7 days. I like to think you should be able to make a sale in 7 days. What each of us is able to launch or sell in 7 days is different. For example, if you need $50k to launch/make a sale but can’t access $50k in 7 days...
