Slik (YC S17)

Slik AI is a lead-generation company founded by Stefan Stokic and Soroush Ghodsi. The founders of Slik, still in high school, were named the youngest entrepreneurs to ever be accepted into Y-Combinator. Using an API the founders created, their product finds leads for salespeople and saves them for later use. The company was founded a little over a year ago and now brings in a monthly revenue of over $20,000.

I helped out with a variety of different projects, but mainly focused on designing the second version of their product: a dashboard for leads. This dashboard helped customers to find information on leads and filter that information to what was relevant to their search. Using the Slik API, customers had access to a huge dataset. This version of the product was created to help customers search through that dataset.

Problem

There is a large dataset, but no way for customers to view previously exported leads or discover new leads. The previous version of Slik gave customers the ability to retrieve contact information via LinkedIn profiles, but no way to search for new leads. 

Goal

As a customer, I want a platform that makes it easy to find new leads for my sales team. I want this platform to help my company make sales by identifying relevant leads and providing me contact information on these leads.
