The fastest way to start, ship, and share
The Replit platform isn't just a sandbox; it's a launchpad. There’s a lot to learn from startups building on Replit and how they leverage the platform to monetize and grow.
Whether it’s a solo developer bootstrapping their startup on Bounties, or a startup launching their application on Replit Deployments, Replit is the best place to go from idea to software, fast.
Here are a few companies building and shipping on Replit today.
For many startup founders, raising capital is a painful but essential part of their startup journey. Starting a pitch deck from a blank slate adds another daunting, time-consuming task to a long list of responsibilities. That’s why Keane Angle built Pitches.ai, a pitch deck editor that uses GPT-4 and hours of knowledge from 200+ pitch decks that raised $3B+ to help founders generate compelling pitches for investors and customers.
After a decade-long career in advertising with clients including Coca-Cola, Ikea, and Burger King, Keane transitioned into startup consulting by helping startup founders hone their stories and convey their value proposition to investors and customers. After seeing the abilities of generative AI, Keane saw an opportunity to use LLMs to scale his consulting business to help even more founders and sales professionals.
Keane has been a self-taught front-end developer for years and has dabbled in several programming languages. However, complex local packages and hosting configurations always prevented him from launching an idea as a working, hosted SaaS. That all changed with Replit and AI. With some extra practice and prompt engineering, Keane used Replit to build the first versions of Pitches.ai and multiple other simple SaaS tools in Python for his businesses and clients.
Without Replit, and definitely without today’s leading generative LLMs, [Pitches.ai] would not have been possible to create. - Keane Angle, CEO of Pitches.ai and STORY Pitch Decks
Morningside AI + AAA Accelerator
If you can’t think of an AI-integrated SaaS to participate in the AI boom, there are other paths for you. Thousands of businesses want to integrate AI into existing products and workflows and are willing to pay service providers who can help.
Liam Ottley and his team at Morningside AI realized this while working in previous agencies. Over the past year, they have helped dozens of businesses create custom AI automation workflows to help agencies and mid-sized enterprises save thousands of hours and manual labor costs.
In this workflow, Liam and his team used Voiceflow, Replit, and Slack to manage data in an agency Airtable database. A Voiceflow instance hosted on Replit takes in voice messages and then takes action in Airtable or Slack.
After hiring a full-time operator at Morningside, Liam recently launched the AI Automation Agency (AAA) Accelerator to help other entrepreneurs learn how to integrate AI into other businesses. If you want to join a community to help you launch your AI automation agency, this could be a great place to start.
Any automation or workflow that requires any sort of custom code, Replit is by far the best option to get that up and hosted on the web... I got the Voiceflow API part of that workflow demo up and running the [Voiceflow] template in minutes and it was so nice and simple.
