Hi David,

Congrats on the business! I've spent time at analytics companies and build communities around them. Great space to be in.

Given the stage you're at, I believe that the best path forward is to take the approach that your community can be major contributors via feedback and ideation as you build the product together. Engaging engineering managers as a community of practice to deeply understand their wants and needs will also be beneficial (look to Commsor/Community Club as a great example).

The great news is that community-led is a super scalable way to think about building a business, especially when you're bootstrapping with a small team.

Would love to hear more about what you're working on and offer any help that I can along the way.
