I was asked to help Oliver bring his vision to life, and to walk him through the steps of starting and launching a product-based business. The concept for the platform was entirely conceived by Oliver, and he brought me on board to help design and build the product. I used Startship and other curricula I had developed to help him understand the world of digital products along the way.
Development was handled by Alexey and his crew at Dev-Better. The UI was designed by myself and Vlad at Arounda. Grant Lechner and I collaborated once again to build the brand. I took charge of product management and helped Oliver make design and development decisions along the way. We initiated the project in June 2017, and launched the live product in September 2017 (one of my fastest turn-arounds to date).
This was an extremely unique opportunity to combine my passions for education and product strategy, and I’m thankful for the opportunity to have worked with a student as talented as Oliver!
