“Don't look at markets and decide, you know, don't see, oh, the market wants a sales analyst product. I'm going to build it. If you don't even care about sales, like why do you build an AI for sales? Build what you care about and what you would use because the first user of your product has to be yourself,” he said.

He continued, "Nobody cares about your product that you're building in the beginning other than you and your co-founders. And it's hard to care about something if you don't actually like it. So follow your heart and get some users, and then the market will automatically guide you to building something that has some commercial value. So, that's the right order rather than following the market and then trying to like it."
