Today on Voicing Startups I had the chance to talk with Braden Ream, Co-Founder and CEO of Voiceflow. Voiceflow is a creative platform to help people design, prototype, and build voice apps without coding for Alexa + Google Assistant. One reason I really liked this interview was that Voiceflow was the product of Braden and his team scratching their own itch as Voice app builders for a tool that had a little more muscle behind it and would fit their needs. In this episode of Voicing Startups Braden talks about the origin of Voiceflow while also digging into other pieces of the business like their target market, business model and competitive landscape. Braden also touches on the selection process for feature selection in the product and some differences in the pro version of the tool. We wrap up the episode with some use cases in voice, the Voiceflow community, and Braden’s vision for voice going forward.
