KP: Hi Edward! Welcome to the Build In Public community. Why don’t you give us a quick intro?
EI: I’m Edward Igushev, Co-Founder & CEO of TrueSource. I worked at Google for 6.5 years working on a Machine Learning Platform and after at Glean (Enterprise Search Engine) working on various infrastructure projects and Enterprise Knowledge Graph.
KP: How would you describe what you are building currently?
EI: We’re building TrueSource - a no-code platform to build and launch intelligent data products and monetize them. We allow creators and businesses to build data-centric apps like Crunchbase or IMDb in 5 minutes. Think of it as Shopify or Substack for data. On top of that, TrueSource links data products to compound value for creators and their users.
KP: What’s a recent milestone you’re excited about?
EI: We were heads down building our product and talking to users and customers. We’re very excited that we’re at the point when we can provide access to the product to a broader audience to try it out.
KP: What specific inflection point led you on this journey? Why are you building what you are building?
EI: I have been always passionate about data. Building a no-code platform with the ability for creators and businesses to leverage each others’ data is our first step towards our vision to become the database of the world.
KP: Who does your current project help/serve the most? (Ideal Customer Profile)
EI: TrueSource serves the most anyone (individual or business) who’s building data-centric applications starting from simple ones based on one table to sophisticated applications with multiple connected tables and various filters, search, nested pages, navigation and monetization like Crunchbase, IMDb or Zillow.
KP: What are 1-3 killer features/selling points that you believe make your offering quite unique and valuable as compared to the alternatives?
EI: Our key differentiating features, which no other no-code tools have are:
- Native support for multiple connected tables;
- Ability to add nested pages and complex navigation;
- Automatic filters and search;
- Built-in monetization;
- Ability to leverage other creators’ data. We’re the first no-code platform with a built-in community of creators and businesses;
KP: What is one tip on building a startup you’d give your younger self from 4 years ago?
EI: Do not wait and go earlier on the journey.
KP: What is one tip about no-code you’d give someone getting started in their journey?
