Peter Suhm

Intro

Peter Suhm is the co-founder of Reform, a tool that lets you easily create simple, brand-able forms. Peter is also part of the Tiny Seed 1st batch, where he was working on Branch. After Branch didn't work out, he went through a period of testing and validating ideas.

One of those ideas was a investor update tool, where Peter discovered how convoluted creating a form with existing tools was. Using Twitter and a very early stage MVP, he validated the idea for Reform and got to work building.

Since then he's had #1 Product of the Week on Product Hunt and is now working through the challenges of building features and growing revenue. You might have also heard Peter on the Out of Beta podcast, which he co-hosts with Matt Wensing.
