Welcome to StartupShip One.

Thank you for stopping by. My name is Gareth and I'm the creator of, which is a prototyping platform that helps people evaluate new ideas in-market faster using no-code x AI.

I decided to create this new blog as a way of sharing what it's like building an AI startup as a first-time solo founder. To say it has it's been challenging would definitely be an understatement. Building a startup as a solo founder is quite possibly the hardest thing I've ever tried to do in my career. That said, I'm incredibly encouraged about the future of building digital products with Generative AI and think we are all living through another iPhone moment.

So what can you expect to learn from this blog?

Hopefully a lot!

I'm a full stack data professional who is passionate about AI, building data driven software and growth marketing. So expect to see a lot of posts in those areas.

I want to use this blogging platform (which was generated using's AI UI Generator) to communicate the learnings that I have experienced on my startup journey. I've learned a lot, made mistakes and believe that I can provide significant value to professionals who are interested in building data driven products with no-code and AI.

Topics covered in this blog

There is a lot to learn when building a startup.

You need to wear many hats when starting out, so being able to use AI to lighten certain loads will prove invaluable. There is also a lot of decisions to make about what stacks to build on. There are so many options out there, but I'm going to focus on what I know best, which is the web stack as I believe this is the easiest stack to get up and running for rapidly testing and evaluating new product ideas.

I'm also aware that Generative AI is still new and that we are all this learning this amazing technology together. So, I'll be sharing what I learn as I learn it and building in public.

So if you are interested in learning more about:

  • Generative AI and building responsibly with AI models
  • Learning how to responsibly collect data and measure user experiences
  • How to prototype, build and evaluate data driven products that solve user problems

Then you've come to the right place.

So, let's kick things off and start learning about how to fine tune your first AI model.

Thanks again for stopping by!
