    Hi Serge, congrats on the launch!

    If you have a sec to answer a few questions, on day 3, how did you find 3 potential users to validate the need for your Invoice idea?
    And, on day 4, how did you reach out to founders and experts? Did you send cold emails to the people you follow on RevGenius and IH?

    Thank you

    1. 1

      Sure!
      The first potential users were mostly people we already knew or could easily reach on messengers.

      No cold email was sent on day 4 - we made only a couple of posts in that communities asking for volunteers who can fill the survey

    Thanks for sharing! Quick question: What do this chat refers to:
    "Several people responded to the Bootcamp idea in the community chat."

    The idea in itself on how to quickly assemble and develop apps is a great business in its own right!

      That refers to Telegram Chat "Indie Hackers SPB" - the local community of Indie Hackers based in Saint-Petersburg, Russia :)
