German 🇩🇪 Serial Entrepreneur and Technical Founder. Over 15 years of experience in software development and startups. I have bootstrapped startups to over $1M in revenue without any funding. Here's a fun Fact: I ended up completely broke after my very first startup. Let's embrace failure. I currently run a SaaS business (Magicul.io) specifically tailored to UI UX design teams with customer ranging from agencies to Fortune 500 companies like HP, Bank of America and IBM. I previously founded LookAround - a VR startup, enabling real estate agents to capture VR tours for properties. We established partnerships with the 3 biggest property portals in the UAE (PropertyFinder, Dubizzle and Bayut) and became one of the most used software tools to capture virtual tours across the region. I'm extremely knowledgable at getting lean startups off the ground, with limited human and financial resources. Love advising people (especially technical) on their journey to become founders and crack the mystery of getting some MRR going.

I'm currently trying to build my first startup in the AI space. Kevin was extremely knowledgeable and asked the right questions to break the concept down to a minimal version. He gave me some great tips on how to build a very first minimum viable product. He also asked me the right questions on user acquisition and how to sell to the first customers. I'm excited to speak to you again kevin. Thanks for everything!

Kevin's mentorship has been extremely helpful in getting initial traction for our startup. His expertise in lean product development has allowed us to define an initial MVP and iterate on it. Customer feedback was crucial during the process and we made sure to loop in some early stage customer champions in every iteration. He had some nifty tricks on how to get early adopters. I highly recommend Kevin as a mentor to anyone looking for guidance on learning how to build a lean startup.

I recently had the opportunity to participate in a mentorship session with Kevin Goedecke, and I can confidently say that it was a fantastic experience.

His hands-on experience with his own SaaS business (Magicul.io) was evident as he provided me with practical advice and strategies to implement in my own journey. What truly sets Kevin apart is his ability to listen and genuinely understand the challenges faced by aspiring founders like myself. He shared several ideas to help me release my startup, even continuing the conversation after our session had ended. His passion for mentoring and supporting others is truly inspiring. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to learn from Kevin, and I look forward to our next session.
