290. The Rise of Low-Code/No-Code, How Tech is Changing Developer Roles, and the Launch of Founder-Led Venture Funds (Brian Luerssen)



Brian Luerssen of Long Jump joins Nick to discuss The Rise of Low-Code/No-Code, How Tech is Changing Developer Roles, and the Launch of Founder-Led Venture Funds. In this episode we cover:

  • Walk us through your background and path to Draftbit.
  • Tell us about the customer market and who you're targeting with Draftbit.
  • Are there good comps or parallels in the non-mobile space?
  • Will the user of Draftbit still be a developer, or do you have cases where it's the application product manager or others?
  • Is it just web apps and native apps covering the spectrum?
  • There's this principled group of developers, that don't want to use App builders. They want to build the ground up themselves. How do you deal with that objection?
  • Have you guys achieved product-market fit? Yes or no? 
  • What's the biggest challenge to getting product-market fit and hitting huge growth numbers?
  • Where do you go now? How do you see the business evolve? What's the end-all large market opportunity for Draftbit?
  • Does it stay a platform that you build on and it exports code or does it end up becoming kind of its own place you build within, like a WordPress, or maybe even a Webflow?
  • Any thoughts or advice for founders out there that are early-stage builders taking on something ambitious?
  • Tell us about the origin story of Long Jump and why was this fund founded?
  • So $100k, across the board for all investments is or is there some discretion to move up or down?
