Happy Friday! 

Nikita Bier, a successful startup founder (he sold his company to Facebook) says that a reproducible testing process is more valuable than any one idea. You should put first focus on the innovation of the testing process before anything else. All things equal, a team with more shots at bat will win against a team with an audacious vision.

That's some solid advice. With the Slice I try to use your feedback as one of the ways I'm validating my ideas. I would appreciate if you could fill out the short survey.

Next week I have a cool thing to announce but now let’s jump into this week’s newsletter.

See you next week.
