MBA1095 Q&A Wednesday: Can I create a software company with no technical knowledge?

Got an idea for an app? Dying to create software that will change how everyone does…something? Are you bursting with ideas, but totally lacking the technical knowledge to actually develop the tech yourself?

You’re not the only one.

It’s Q&A Wednesday, and one listener’s got a frequently asked question: can a non-tech person start a software company? Can an entrepreneur with zero coding or development skills find and hire the people necessary to carry out the vision?

Spoiler alert: sort of, but not really.

Our host and co-founder Omar wasn’t a tech expert by trade, but that didn’t stop him from moving forward with projects like our webinar software company, WebinarNinja. However, he made the time and found the resources to get an education in tech — because otherwise, he’d have been flying blind.

Today, we discuss what level of knowledge you need to attain in order to competently run a software company. We also offer resources for getting the training you need, so you can proceed with confidence and (just enough) know-how. Click Play!
