Episode 16: “Always Be in Your MVP” with Arshad Wala, Digitalworks
By: Suzanne Abate @suzanneabate
Arshad Wala isn't shy about what he thinks is right and which ideas are dumb.
"I don't know if it works or not. What I do know is that I'll prove it to you if it works or not."
I'm sitting with Arshad in a top secret location, where his company Digitalworks has been contracted to reimagine a high growth mobile application.
Arshad is a big proponent of an experimental, minimal waste approach to finding product-market fit. Perhaps moreso than even Eric Ries, who first coined the term the Minimum Viable Product in his book The Lean Startup.
In this episode Arshad shares his frontline growth hacking tips and some brutal advice for all product founders (hint: don't fall in love with your own solution).
There's a lot of laughs, a lot of truth telling and tons of great ideas including:
- How to build for speed and for scale
- How to master UX Design in 30 minutes
- How to apply Agile to romantic relationships
