Product Journeys: Flow

Product Journeys: Flow

2020-10-0834:342

Flow was launched in 2012 as a side-project from Andrew Wilkinson's creative agency Metalab, who work with companies such as Uber, Slack and Coinbase, in order to improve their own internal productivity. They faced a huge challenger in Asana who launched just after them after raising $28 million dollars. Asana may have out spent them on marketing, but Flow stayed one stop ahead in terms of product and design for the first five years or so. Most recently, after downsizing the company, they brought in Daniel Scrivner, the former Head of Design at Square, to lead the company into the next decade - most recently launching Flow X.

Product Journeys: Tesla

Product Journeys: Tesla

2020-09-0323:302

Tesla, Inc., formerly (2003–17) Tesla Motors, American electric-automobile manufacturer. It was founded in 2003 by American entrepreneurs Martin Eberhard and Marc Tarpenning and was named after Serbian American inventor Nikola Tesla. Tesla Motors was formed to develop an electric sports car. Eberhard was Tesla’s chief executive officer (CEO) and Tarpenning its chief financial officer (CFO). Funding for the company was obtained from a variety of sources, most notably PayPal cofounder Elon Musk, who contributed more than $30 million to the new venture and served as chairman of the company, beginning in 2004. In 2008 Tesla Motors released its first car, the completely electric Roadster. In company tests, it achieved 245 miles (394 km) on a single charge, a range unprecedented for a production electric car. Additional tests showed that its performance was comparable to that of many gasoline-powered sports cars: the Roadster could accelerate from 0 to 60 miles (96 km) per hour in less than 4 seconds and could reach a top speed of 125 miles (200 km) per hour. The lightweight car body was made of carbon fibre. The Roadster produced no tailpipe emissions, as it did not use an internal-combustion engine. Tesla Motors found that the car attained efficiency ratings that were equivalent to a gasoline mileage of 135 miles per gallon (57 km per litre). The vehicle’s electric motor was powered by lithium-ion cells—often used in laptop-computer batteries—that could be recharged from a standard electric outlet. Despite a federal tax credit of $7,500 for purchasing an electric vehicle, the Roadster’s cost of $109,000 made it a luxury item. But Tesla, like many startups, has a storied history, and we're going to take you through the journey that has been Tesla Motors.

Product Journeys: Veil

Product Journeys: Veil

2020-08-2731:361

Veil is a near-future climate change techno thriller, but how does a high researched, science based fictional book like this come into existence? Today we follow Eliot Peper and through his process of building a physical product and releasing something that can't be updated with a hot fix pushed to production. We walk through his writing, editing, rewriting process and the discipline it takes to 'make progress everyday.' We also explore his philosophy around releasing a book and how he knows when he's 'done.' The premise of Veil is when Zia León's mother dies in a heat wave that kills twenty million, she abandons a promising diplomatic career to lead humanitarian aid missions to regions ravaged by drought, wildfires, and sea level rise. What Zia doesn't know is that clandestine forces are gathering around her in pursuit of a colossal secret: someone has hijacked the climate, and the future of human civilization is at stake. To avoid a world war that appears more inevitable every day, Zia must build a coalition of the powerless and attempt the impossible. But success depends on facing the grief that has come to define her life, and rediscovering friendship, family, and what it means to be true to yourself while everything falls apart.

The features of the device include: voice interaction, music playback, making to-do lists, setting alarms, streaming podcasts, and playing audiobooks, in addition to providing weather, traffic and other real-time information. It can also control several smart devices, acting as a home automation hub. The smart speaker needs to use Wi-Fi to connect to Internet, there is no Ethernet port. According to confirmed reports, Amazon started developing Echo devices inside its Lab126 offices in Silicon Valley and in Cambridge, Massachusetts as early as 2010. The device represented one of first attempts to expand its device portfolio beyond the Kindle e-reader.

Product Journeys: Drip

Product Journeys: Drip

2020-08-1328:432

When Rob Walling launched Drip, he was doing $7K in monthly recurring revenue. But he quickly realized that his revenue had already flat-lined and that he had a high customer churn problem. He was competing with behemoths like Mail Chimp and Marketo with a team of just 3 engineers. Drip started as a simple opt-in pop-up with an autoresponder. It then evolved into an email service provider, to finally become a marketing automation platform. That’s when it hit real product-market fit and churn immediately started plummeting. Rob sold Drip to Leadpages almost 3 years ago. Recently, he started TinySeed, an early stage VC fund and remote accelerator that aims to fill a gap in the market by providing funding to SaaS companies who don’t aim for the 100 million dollar goal.
