Hello, fearless founders. Welcome to the latest issue of Relentless, your weekly dispatch about all things testing, learning, and growing.

The better the prototype, the worse the feedback?

Our co-founder (and Cisco and BCG alum!) Kate O’Keeffe dropped all kinds of knowledge gems on the Startup Equity Matters podcast. During her chat with host Jason Atkins, she answered questions about raising money, protecting your equity through market testing data, and more. She also broke down how the largest companies innovate through experimentation and how founders can mimic these strategies without a billion-dollar budget.

Plus, there was this interesting takeaway about human behavior during user interviews:

“Present users in your ICP with sketches and quick and dirty lines on a page. Figma is almost too resolved, because the minute they think there’s something resolved there, they’re likely to nod along politely, especially if it looks nice.”

Access Kate’s industry secrets by listening to the podcast below.
