Product vs. Pipeline

What has happened in the venture funding world in the past couple of months? How do you handle repositioning? Can you lean too heavily on your product, features, and roadmaps? What do you do when one of your features falls flat?

It’s the middle of the summer edition of Bootstrapped Web. Brian and Jordan are back behind the mic after surviving family vacations, COVID, and cancelled flights. Today, Brian dives deep into repositioning and how ZipMessage has refocused in the past couple weeks. Meanwhile, Jordan talks about the biggest mistake he has made with Rally so far.
