Tell us about yourself?

I’m Jean-Christophe Dubé, CEO and Co-founder of Berrycast. With a passion for building great products and a background in entrepreneurship, I’ve dedicated myself to creating tools that enhance communication and collaboration in the workplace.

Before starting Berrycast, I founded DressYou, a fashion marketplace focused on inspiring looks and driving sales for our partners. This venture allowed me to explore my belief in redefining beauty standards and transforming the way people shop.

Prior to that, I gained valuable experience as an Account Manager at Freudenberg Household Products. Managing national accounts such as Rona, Jean-Coutu, and Metro Inc., I honed my skills in account management, relationship building, and negotiation. This role allowed me to develop a deep understanding of maintaining long-term relationships and maximizing sales opportunities.

What drew me into this line of work is the love for Saas business and the opportunity to empower individuals and teams to communicate effectively and achieve their goals. I recognized the immense value of visual communication in streamlining workflows and fostering collaboration. With Berrycast, I saw the chance to leverage technology to provide a simple, user-friendly screen recording app tailored specifically for project managers. It’s incredibly fulfilling to witness the positive impact Berrycast has on the way teams communicate, share knowledge, and accomplish their projects seamlessly.

If you could go back in time a year or two, what piece of advice would you give yourself?

I have two…

Consider the market first – the product second. Your primary focus should always be on your market, driven by the problem you aim to solve. Finding people who are willing to pay for a solution to their problem is often the most challenging aspect, yet many individuals tend to start with the fun part first – building a product or solution. However, it is crucial to understand that the product itself comes second; it serves as the means to address that problem.

Another crucial consideration is ensuring the right founder-fit with the problem you intend to solve (not the solution). This is essential because as you progress, the challenges may intensify, and having that founder-fit motivation becomes increasingly important. It is vital to maintain a deep attachment to the problem itself rather than being fixated on a specific solution. This is crucial as the solution may need to change or pivot over time. Let’s consider the example of curing cancer: it remains your ultimate goal, and it should remain unwavering. However, the specific solution you develop to achieve that goal can pivot and evolve based on the insights and learnings you gather along the way.

What problem does your business solve?


Berrycast tackles the prevalent issue of miscommunication in the workspace, which often leads to costly problems in projects and businesses. Ineffective communication methods can result in misunderstandings, delays, and errors that hinder productivity and impact the bottom line. Berrycast provides a solution by offering a powerful screen recording app designed specifically for project managers and their collaboration with every stakeholder.

What is the inspiration behind your business?

The inspiration behind Berrycast stems from the recognition of the pervasive challenges of communication and collaboration in the workplace. Our goal is to empower professionals to overcome these challenges and streamline their workflows. Several key factors inspired the creation of Berrycast:

  • Frustrations with traditional communication methods: We observed the limitations of text-based communication, such as emails and messages, in conveying complex information effectively. Text alone often fails to capture the nuances and visual elements necessary for clear understanding. We were inspired to find a solution that would enhance communication and bridge the gaps left by traditional methods.
  • Remote work and virtual collaboration: The rise of remote work and virtual collaboration brought about new hurdles in effective communication. With team members scattered across different locations, face-to-face interactions became less frequent, making it challenging to convey ideas and instructions clearly. We recognized the need for a tool that would facilitate seamless communication and collaboration in this evolving work landscape.
  • Empowering project managers: Project managers play a crucial role in coordinating teams, ensuring project success, and meeting client expectations. We aimed to develop a solution specifically tailored for project managers to address their unique communication needs. By providing a user-friendly screen recording app, Berrycast empowers project managers to convey information more efficiently, enhance collaboration, and overcome common communication barriers.

The problem we strive to solve with Berrycast is the prevalence of miscommunication in the workplace, leading to costly issues in projects and for businesses. We aim to provide professionals with a tool that enables them to communicate effectively, present information visually, and bridge the gaps caused by distance, language barriers, or complex concepts. Berrycast is designed for project managers, teams, and businesses across various industries who seek a streamlined, visual communication solution to enhance productivity, mitigate miscommunication risks, and foster collaboration.

What is your magic sauce?

At Berrycast, we stand out from the competition with three key differentiators that set us apart:

  • Cutting-edge AI capabilities: We are proud to be the pioneers in offering advanced AI capabilities within our screen recording app. Unlike any other solution on the market, our AI technology provides automated transcription and AI summaries of recorded content. This powerful feature saves time and effort for project managers, enabling them to quickly extract key information and insights from their recordings. Our AI capabilities give us a unique advantage and demonstrate our commitment to leveraging innovative technologies for the benefit of our users.
  • Specialized market niche: While competitors take a broader approach or target different niches, we have deliberately focused our efforts on serving the specific needs of project managers. This market niche specialization allows us to deeply understand the challenges faced by project managers and tailor our features to address their unique requirements. By aligning our solution with the specific pain points of project managers, we provide a more targeted and valuable tool for their everyday tasks and collaboration needs.
  • Simplicity of use: We believe that technology should be accessible to everyone, regardless of technical expertise. With Berrycast, we have placed a strong emphasis on simplicity and ease of use. Our intuitive user interface and streamlined features make it effortless for project managers to record their screens, share video links, and collaborate seamlessly with their teams and clients. We have prioritized user experience and simplicity to ensure that anyone can quickly adopt and utilize Berrycast without any steep learning curve.

What is the plan for the next 5 years? What do you want to achieve?

Our vision for the next five years is to be at the forefront of AI-driven communication and collaboration tools for project managers. We strive to continuously innovate and push the boundaries of what is possible in terms of screen recording, transcription, and AI-driven features. Through expansion into new markets and strategic partnerships, we aim to empower project managers across industries to communicate effectively, save time, and achieve their goals with Berrycast as their go-to solution.

What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced so far?

Our biggest challenge thus far has been the need to define and target our ideal market segment. As a versatile screen recording app, Berrycast has attracted a wide range of users from various industries and professions; Designers sharing visuals, Architects explaining their plans, Educators to create instructional videos and share detailed explanations, HR professionals to streamline onboarding processes by creating video tutorials that guide new employees, Lawyers, Mortgage Brokers, Accountants, and much more professionals across various industries.

While this diverse user base showcases the versatility and usefulness of our product, it has also posed challenges in terms of marketing efforts and product development.

Initially, we embraced a more horizontal approach, aiming to cater to the needs of multiple user groups simultaneously. However, we soon realized that by spreading our marketing efforts and product development too wide, we were unable to fully address the specific pain points and requirements of each individual segment. This lack of focus led to diluted messaging, decreased customer acquisition, and challenges in delivering a truly tailored experience.

To overcome this hurdle and create a more impactful product-market fit, we had to change course and adopt a more targeted strategy. We conducted thorough market research and analysis to identify the segment that would benefit the most from Berrycast’s capabilities. Through this process, we discovered a strong demand and untapped potential within the project management niche.

By narrowing our focus to project managers, we were able to align our marketing efforts and product development to cater specifically to their needs. This shift allowed us to refine our messaging, develop features tailored to project management workflows, and establish ourselves as the go-to solution for project managers seeking seamless screen recording and collaboration tools.

Berrycast is still utilized by a wide range of users, as its core value proposition offers an easy-to-use solution for many. However, our marketing efforts are primarily focused on targeting project managers.
