As this is the first Nestio blog aimed directly at SaaS learnings, I felt that the topic should be in line with the foundation we are building. Throughout my experience at various startups at different stages in funding and growth cycle, as well as working closely with professionals at other companies, the fundamental element consistent across the board is building a solid foundation early on which will help you massively as you expand. Having a solid foundation also aids in mitigating any growing pains experienced along the way.
When I say “building a foundation”, this does not end at implementing a few processes here and there. It means that on every identifiable level, set yourself up with a solid foundation to build upon. There are always going to be changes, pivots, improvements in technology, edits to the tech-stack, and unexpected issues to address, but being able to make those changes without having to start over, or build on top of something that was weak to begin with, will make those changes much easier.
