ARE YOU A FIRST-TIME TECH FOUNDER?
What is a Tech Founder?
Do you have an idea for a new mobile app or web app or SaaS platform – or, really any software product?
Then, you are a potential Tech Founder!
Tell me, could your idea help connect people… or help facilitate their work or play in a new or better way… or save them time?
Do you get excited about the potential of your idea?
Could it help you stop relying on your job for a lifestyle?
Maybe you could finally stop just swapping your hours for money?
And, what about your choices? Could it change your life forever?
Thinking about the future can get your heart-pumping when you have a great idea that has huge potential!
Your heart may also be pumping from the stress or frustration of trying to guess the best approach. Of what to do next…
Or even just where to start!
This is mostly the fear of the unknown!
Let’s be honest…
You don’t want to risk your money if it’s not going to work!
Why do you think most first-time tech founders fail?
In our experience, there is one main reason…
It is their first time!
So, how do you maximise your chance of success if it’s YOUR first time?
Rather than attempting to guess the best approach using trial and error, smart founders get help.
They join an incubator or engage a startup coach, to benefit from their experience and the proven success strategies.
It just makes sense!
The best time to start planning a winning strategy for your new tech business is at the very beginning.
Before you engage a developer. And definitely, before you commit thousands on development!
Kuboom is not a developer.
Although, our founder did run one of Melbourne’s fastest growing app development agencies for over 5 years.
He’s worked with hundreds of tech founders on a wide range of successful projects.
He knows what works and what doesn’t!
So, how can we help you?
If you’re still reading, then we assume you are a potential tech founder with a great idea and want to create a financial winner.
We coach Tech Founders (many first-time), and guide them through each stage of building a successful Tech Business.
Your project will be unique and require a custom roadmap.
However, many of the critical components you need to consider in your plan are going to be similar to other successful tech businesses.
We only use proven, battle-tested strategies. This will minimise the risk and maximise your success.
Our primary objective is to:
Help you build your idea into a commercial success!
And you’ll actually save time and money using our process.
DO YOU HAVE AN ACTION PLAN?
Have you put together a plan to get your idea off the ground? If not, we can help. Book a FREE 45-minute planning session which will identify the key tasks to prioritise.
If you have a plan and already started, we can also help. Your 45-minute FREE planning session will identify any missing tasks and confirm you’re on the right track.
KEEP IT SIMPLE – FOCUS ON WHAT’S IMPORTANT NOW
Every tech project is different. Yours will require a custom plan & strategy that considers the unique problem, solution, users, market and your circumstance.
To simplify the journey from idea to commercial success, we split the process into four distinct stages. Then, it’s easy to prioritise what to do now.
This means, if you’re at Stage 01, don’t be distracted by tasks in other stages… And we’ve got lots of templates, hacks and cheat sheets to simplify the whole process.

HOW TO AVOID A BIG MISTAKE
What questions do you have about developing your idea?
In the past 10 years, I’ve spoken to more than 600 potential tech founders with a range of ideas, both for personal users and industry applications.
So, I’ve heard all the questions.
You’ll most likely have a set of similar questions, like:
- How much will it cost to develop my app?
- How long will it take?
- Do you think my idea is a winner?
- Can you guarantee it will be a success?
- How can I attract investors?
Like most, you’ll probably be tempted to call an App Developer to get some of these questions answered…
Logical first move, right?
Unfortunately… It’s not!
You see, App Developers are motivated to build something… That’s how they make their money. So, their advice can be bias.
Don’t get me wrong, getting answers to these questions is important, however… The more critical question you need to ask yourself is:
Should I develop my Idea?
So, before you commit to development…
And have to shell out tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars…
There are several critical things you should prioritise to confirm your idea is worth the time and money you plan to invest…
This time spent BEFORE development will:
- Help you to create a smart development roadmap,
- Help simplify your choice of developer,
- Increase your potential for success, and
- May save you a small fortune.
Here at Kuboom, our goal is to help you avoid the mistakes that most tech founders make and set your business up for success.
Some key outcomes can include:
- Confirmation users will want your idea.
- Strategies to attract and retain Active Users.
- A long-term ‘Best Technology’ recommendation.
- Monetisation Strategies.
- Product and Business Development Roadmaps.
- An ‘Investor Ready’ plan.
- Frameworks to minimise your costs.

We had a fantastic experience with Kuboom!
Kuboom reviewed the pre-launch version of our BuddyBet app. Graham and his team made several important recommendations to help optimise our technology and technical team.
Graham was further engaged to run the first BuddyBet user trials. His methodology simplified the whole process and delivered valuable insights about our users, the market and product.
Graham has been able to add way more value than I originally expected. We would not be as advanced as we currently are without Graham’s coaching and advice.
Graham has agreed to come on as a permanent member of our Advisory Board.
I engaged Kuboom to help establish our initial growth strategy. Because of Graham’s experience with startups and the tech industry, he gave me extremely practical, real world business advice about what to prioritise in each stage of our business plan and growth strategy.
Graham also helped me choose a dev partner that suited our needs perfectly.
We had several false starts getting my concept of Wrapt About up and running. Graham at Kuboom was able to help me clarify our objectives and create a plan.
His step-by-step approach has simplified the process of validating some core beliefs and given our investors confidence. The first version of our platform will now be ready for live user testing mid-March 2020
After getting conflicting advice from several developers, we weren’t certain of the best way to proceed. Graham helped us develop a plan. He is able to anticipate potential issues that I would have missed, long before they eventuate.
Of huge benefit also, is the way Graham keeps me accountable to our plan.

I am a startup specialist and Kuboom’s founder.
I understand the uncertainty of creating something new, from scratch, without any guarantee of success.
For the past 30+ years I’ve been in business. I have worked in the family business. I’ve been a founder or co-founder in over 12 startups.
I’ve experienced both success and failure across a range of industries.
In 2012, I co-founded a small App Development company called Buzinga Apps.
We grew Buzinga to become one of the fastest growing and best development agencies in Australia until late 2017.
During this time, I saw a lot of our client’s apps fail to reach commercial success for many reasons.
Most of which I thought were avoidable (in retrospect).
I became obsessed with this. I studied design thinking, lean methodology, lean startup, exponential growth strategy among others. And I spent time with successful founders analysing how they did it.
Kuboom was founded to continue this work.
Success does not just rely on developing a great product!
There are some fundamental truths about your users and the market that must be uncovered at each stage of your app business growth, if you are to achieve the level of engagement necessary for commercial success.
Our framework includes strategies, methodologies and tactics to uncover these truths so you can maximise your success.
And our level of coaching input can vary depending on your need (and budget).
The bottom line is, with Kuboom on your team, you’ll spend less time guessing, less time worrying and more time working confidently towards a successful outcome.
