Ian Ruta, the founder of Supersparks, waspreviously part of a successful startup as the first hired employee. This iswhere his eyes were opened to how efficient no-code can be.
Through this, their development team was ableto strategically prioritize tasks on the roadmap that posed less risk withgreater potential impact. Prior, he also worked as a Product Manager, offeredno-code freelance services and built various side projects with NoCode.
Ian started the ideation process earlySeptember of 2022, and decided to pursue Supersparks full time by earlyOctober. It took him around three weeks to come up with the branding, name etc.and officially launch Supersparks by early November.
The Idea Behind the Creation of Supersparks
The story behind the creation of Supersparks started during his work at his previous company, which is a startup. They aimed and considered pursuing a certain project, however, this project has a lot of risk and requires them to allocate developers from their roadmap, a little bitless risky, higher potential. Building this project/application will take them around two to three months, so they decided to push for a NoCode route for thisproject.
The application was then built with Webflow, MemberStack, Zapier and Airtable
Supersparks Roadmap. However, despite all of these things, this MVP didn’t end up working out. As a result of unpleasant experiences, he felt the anguish and frustration of becoming stuck while searching for solutions online or struggling to create his desired product due to restrictions and limitations of NoCode platforms.
Well, not only him, but a lot of peoplenowadays, many developers have been dealing with these issues, as other NoCoders face similar predicaments on a daily basis. Ian realized that there’s a lot of potential to fill some gaps, address limitations through a third-party application.
This inspired Ian to launch Supersparks: aninnovative way to facilitate problem solving for individuals who don’t codewhile also maximizing popular NoCodetools.
