I want to ask your opinion on whether I stand any chance of getting an endorsement for promise with the following experience as the cofounder and the digital product development lead of the start-up that eventually failed four years ago.
The product is an online digital platform for short-term office space leases. My two cofounders and I developed the product for over a year and then decided to go our separate ways as we ran out of money.
I was responsible for (can provide evidence of my work):
- Product development process: led a diverse team of 10+ people: identified customer needs, created user stories, and obtained user feedback through in-depth interviews to improve the UX/ UI of the platform and onboarding screens.
- Operating processes: website and CRM, contract base, payments, insurance, dispute resolution.
- Business development: negotiated with 10+ potential investors: real estate portfolio owners and venture investors (unlikely they will provide reference letters).
- Financial/operating plans, finance and business models, measuring market capacity, and unit economics.
Can significant efforts in building a new type of digital product on the conservative market ripe for digital disruption be sufficient for an exceptional promise?
Thank you for your replies.
