As an early-stage startup building product from the ground up, please prioritize features early on. It is a feature creep that will kill you before the starvation of funds.
It is very easy to fall for users feedback, compliment as an ego boost. We rally behind every other request we get from our users. We spend months building it and then we realize it has not moved the needle.
Every feature request from a user has to be thought through deeply. It should be vetted, all scenarios should be measured. Do not run after your tech team in building features a user request.
Avoid falling for feature crap and burning, killing your company. Put priority, understand users’ pain and only if it is worth building think of building it.
