What no-code tool would you build should you have "unlimited" funding?

Let's say you have no money limit, therefore there is no constraint to bootstrap your product for several years, what no-code tool would you be building?

Hey @manojranaweera Nicely done. Traction is good we're already in 5 countries. We keep on developing the platform and getting customers in. It always feels good to see your product used to solve real world problems! Interesting product you shipped, how does skilledup work in terms of business model?

@flobbgt we have a very simple model. All talent is free. Just subscribe to access. £30/month if your revenues over the last 12 months is below £100k or you have raised less than £100k. www.skilledup.life/pricing - pricing £ for the time being.

This is a great question. I love making things, and if given unlimited budget I'd have to take on super awesome hard problem, or one that alot of people are facing. I'm assuming that the tool would be some kind of developer or maker tool for that person to be able to build something on their own—on the web, or web 3? if that's the case then I would probably build a no-code dapp builder on the Solana, Flow, and Ethereum blockchains that allow people to make decentralised applications, launch NFTs, and make specialised wallets without having to know solidity or whatever the scripting language of the month is. It would be like backendless, Canonic, Strapi, Hasura, or Supabase for Web3 — only no code. totally abstract away the backend of blockchain and hook it up to the front-end of your choice-Go!

Hey @techronin, interesting thoughts here Strapi or Supabase for Web3, that sounds terrific

I don't think that bootstrapping for long is a good strategy at all. No matter the money. If you want to build something useful you should align your vision with as many stakeholders and as soon as possible. I'm passionate about aerospace, the tech itself, project, and knowledge management. So my effort is all about fighting with complexity and helping teams to achieve guaranteed results. This is a reason why we are building a no-code tool for drones control and autonomy.

Hey @ivan_makarov1 Well many bootstrapped companies are doing quite well (e.g. lemlist). I think it really depends on the time it could take for you to actually build the brand and get the sales machine rolling. But yeah, it takes probably more time to build your company then. What kind of no-code tool for drones?

@flobbgt engineering app that combines system, electrical, software, in one integrated and collaborative environment. From a software perspective the vision is to have separate layers of behaviour described by specific graphical notation. Like UnrealEngine blueprints, but in fully declarative form.

Many tools are in demand, but I would add to them more extensibility and the ability to attract advanced users. A bundle of No-Code + Low-code will be perfectly combined in any software
