LinkedIn articles tend to follow a theme, ideally something popular or trending that we can offer our opinion on in the hope of reaching a wider audience, but I actually wanted to ask for help. I would appreciate your opinion on a genuinely challenging subject for us, and I suspect any start-up at our stage of life, namely entering the growth phase.
It seems that every few months the topic of AI and job security is revitalised and although I did briefly comment on a recently trending article, I realised that I actually have a bit more to say. My experiences managing Codex Edge and our business model is very telling in this debate on whether AI will replace jobs.
With every passing day, I reaffirm my belief that it is more important to focus your attention on what your customer wants, instead of what your competitors are doing. Codex Edge is approaching its 1 year anniversary and as of last month, we broke even. Becoming profitable as a tech start-up within the first year is definitely something to celebrate and we couldn’t have done it, without our customers. More importantly, customer feedback.
