How to choose the right team for your next Product Venture

So you're building a digital product. The biggest bet in a long time for your business?

A lot is on the line. Might be the future success of your business. Might be the biggest initiative in a long time. Honestly, might be your neck if it’s not a success?

Now you need an exceptional team to build the product.
And you have no fre**ing idea on how to assemble it.

You need to consider costs, speed of execution, quality, effect on team culture, future initiatives, etc..

Now everyone starts weighing in.
Internal experts, external experts. Everyone will tell you how you should build your team.

▪️Hire the full team!
▪️Off-shore to a low-cost country!
▪️On-shore to a local tech partner with track record!
▪️Multi-source it! Don’t depend on only one supplier!
▪️Outsource parts of the project, hire for other parts!

Everyone will base their advice on their own previous experiences, and understanding.

👉 Now, after having worked on 50+ product releases - Our two-pennies worth on how to go about this challenge.

Despite representing a company that only fits one of these models (we’re a local tech partner that works as an extension of your team).

We’ll tell you. ALL OF THESE TEAM MODELS WORK.

Because you know what it ultimately comes down to?
Ownership (❗). You need a team who cares DEEPLY about the success of your product.

▪️A team who will be flexible in their approach and mindset, when the project starts throwing curveballs at them.
▪️A team who takes responsibility for the quality of their work. But also a team who challenges you to sometimes opt for the simpler solution.
▪️A team who creates a good working atmosphere with your other team members.
▪️A team who doesn’t sell you hours, whether they’re expensive or cheap, but results.

Consider all options for building a digital product team as equally viable!

The right solution depends firstly on your context. But more importantly, on WHO you encounter as representatives of these different 'team options'.
More important than the team building model in itself - is the team actors. The people you will work with.

Good luck on your journey. Once you have the right team. Everything else becomes fun and attainable 🌟

Weapp x Gothenburg Tech Week: 3 days with 200+ guests & speakers

Last week -> THE GREATEST couple of days we’ve had in a long long time. Hosting a huge 3-day event together with our partner Gothenburg Tech Week.

It took us the whole weekend to decompress all the fantastic presentations, speakers, and people we've met.

[To do a short recap of the three days we’ve had]:
▪️Nvidia teaching us about GenAI & their platform

▫️Femtech experts talking about how to create a diverse tech community

▪️Startup founders sharing expertise & advice on how to leverage data & insights

▫️VC’s, business angels & startup founders talk about the current financing climate

▪️AI experts talk about how companies can drive innovation & growth with AI technologies

▫️Swedish News (SVT) on site, filming. Great Interview with Daniel Langkilde on the topic of ethical AI training. Recommend you to check it out (link in comments)

▪️Interviewing with BRG & Move to Gothenburg, on our take of “Gothenburg as a city for startups & entrepreneurs”.
-> Spoiler alert: It’s an awesome city to move to, and run a business in. You won’t be able to find a more supportive eco-system & network of exciting companies, entrepreneurs and support organisations. Overall, Sweden is a good spot for building your next business.

This was the vision Weapp saw when we took on a 1000m2 space in heart of Gothenburg, and put months and months of hard work, turning it into the event arena that it is today.

People called us crazy. Honestly, we considered ourselves crazy to do it. But the craziest things very often turn out to be the greatest things you do.

We can't wait to host the next event for all digital heroes out there!
