#181 – Deciding to Go Big with David Hsu of Retool

The Indie Hackers Podcast Play Button Pause Button

David Hsu (@dvdhsu) was able to grow Retool to almost a million dollars a year in revenue before making a single hire outside of the founding team. Rather than stopping there and resting on their accomplishments, Retool set an even more ambitious goal: to literally change the way developers write code. In this episode, David and I discuss the benefits and the perils of deciding to "go big," the keys to finding product-market fit and word-of-mouth growth, and opportunities that founders can take advantage of in the low-code space.
