It's a great idea. But I wonder if the price tag is a bit high?
If I were to try to create a small SaaS business, like a startup, I would never be able to afford it.
Say I have an Idea Im validating, and want to get some basic services built, a started kit like this would be great. But it would have to be financially accessible.
On the other hand, if Im an stablished business trying to kickstart a new product/business unit, then I could afford it and use it. But in this scenario I wonder if I would even need this kind of starter kits?

Thanks for your thoughts on that point. We discussed about the price a lot.

We don't want to make it too cheap, because it is a lot of work to keep everything up to date and further development. But we decided then to make a startup discount with 50% off. This should hep them to get it started.

We already had some meetings with big companies. A lot of them are using no-code or low-code solutions at the moment. The biggest problem they are facing with that approach is, that when things get more complex they have to throw the no-code prototype away, because it can't handle the comlexity. The feedback was, that when they would use a SaaS Kit like Carrot Seed it would be easier for them to scale up.

That makes total sense, bigger companies have the $ and the incentives to use products like yours
Go where the money is :)
