[ ✅ Free | Premium ]
Here's a fresh idea you can take out there and validate.
Dumptruck - Data import multi-tool (🗒Raw Notes)
Your quarterly reminder that Excel never dies is here.
Millions of people use Excel. Building for Excel is not sexy (and thus is overlooked by developers and startups). Opportunity is there, it's a matter of finding the right idea, putting in the right effort, and getting lucky.
The idea is to become the easiest tool for importing data in Excel from external sources like Salesforce, Hubspot, Google Analytics, etc.
New startups want people to use their products like Excel -- but in the end people just want to pull data out and put it in Excel, where they're comfortable. Help them do that.
