Applications & Questionnaires for Everything

Not just for jobs anymore

Alaina Demopoulos wrote in about a trend of users of dating applications making application forms to be filled out in order to be considered for a date.

While I expect never to use a dating application in the future, I immediately thought about one for prospective startup founders.

Perhaps I could ask:

  • What have you learned from talking to customers or customer surrogates?
  • How will your offering make their lives better?
  • What are their current alternatives?
  • For which customers is your offering a better choice, and for what reasons?

Maybe my merely asking would nudge them in the right direction without even having to have a meeting.

Yes, the more I think about it, the more I think that it might be even better here than in dating.

Clearly, Cupid should be an inspiration to us all.
