Introducing Seaworthy - A Podcast about Building Successful Software

What is Seaworthy

You have what you think is a great idea, now what? How do you rapidly test your idea and learn if there’s a need that people will use and most importantly, pay for?

Hosted by Chris Schmitz and I, we explore how we answer those very questions for both internal products and clients. We’ll be featuring special guests to discuss and unpack their first-hand experiences with startups, products, raising funding, gaining traction, handling growth, and more.

Why It's Called Seaworthy

Let’s explore an anecdote. Imagine you’re stranded on an island and you knew you wouldn't be rescued unless you build a ship to find another inhabited shore. Would you be able to figure out what you needed to not only set sail but survive the journey? Remember, your raft is small and you can’t carry much so you have to prioritize only what you need.

Is your product seaworthy or will it sink? If it sinks, you have to swim back to shore and use what you learned to build a better ship.

Learning from previous failures helps us get that much closer to success. With Seaworthy, we aim to show insights within our process on mitigating risk as well as showcasing and highlighting the experiences of other entrepreneurs.

Work With Us

We can take any type of project, but we only work with specific technologies that we are deep experts in and with clients who respect and embrace our systems. You should only partner with us on what we are great at.

We don’t take every project that comes our way, and we’re not always the best fit for every customer. That doesn’t mean we’re right, and everyone else is wrong, it just means that we’re different.

We diagnose before we prescribe. We show you a deliverable every two weeks. We’re looking for clients that value our knowledge, respect our process and want a partner, not another firm.

What type of project would you like to partner with us on?
