Hello ProductHunt! 👋 Janet here, Swedish startup lawyer by trade and creator of Six Times Four. I’m thrilled, and a little nervous, to finally be able to share this system with you all. I came up with the initial idea years ago when trying to find a truly innovative idea for the legal industry. I could not find a system that really let me see what was going on and I decided to make my own system, and thus Six Times Four was born. ❓ Problem Disruption can wreak havoc on existing businesses in any industry. We all know the stories of Airbnb, Uber, and Tinder. In the past, there have not been many ways of predicting what a future disruptor may look like or when they may be able to launch. It has been equally difficult for startups to know if they have a true opportunity for disruption on their hands or even to tailor their ideas for maximum industry disruption. 💡 Solution Six Times Four takes the guesswork out of innovation and lets you predictably find both threats and opportunities for setting a new benchmark in any industry. To make the system easy to use it has been designed as one single board that, once filled out, shows you the exact layout of the chessboard of your industry. You can use Six Times Four to: - brainstorm new business ideas - find threats and opportunities for a SWOT analysis - evaluate an entire industry for investment opportunities 👉 How do you usually approach monitoring your industry for disruption opportunities and/or threats? I would love to hear what your normal process looks likes and what tools you use to help you. If you have any tips, suggestions, or just wanna say hi, please drop a line below, I'll be very happy to talk about it!
