Is “find a problem and solve it” able to explain all of billion dollar startups?

Just a small question. Aside from "find a problem and solve it" what are the methodologies to find viable statup product?

Like what did FB, Airbnb founders thought when they make those startups, did they think about their customer problems?

I'm interested in rigorous method to find viable Startup idea. (As rigorous as social science can be)

For background, I'm fullstack engineer (web,mobile mostly android,backend) in my early thirties trying to make a startup.(or should I find my co-founder first, some people do advise this one)

Feeling defeated – my startup has a similar sounding name that a multimillion dollar company has in my space – they reached out and told me I have to hand over my domain otherwise theyll take legal action

Hey guys,

I’m the owner of a resume critique startup . The idea was to create an AI-driven resume critiquor so people can get their resumes reviewed in seconds.

It only made $ 30 since launch, so I ended up just making the service free. Especially with COVID, I thought it’d help people out that need to get jobs so I put it as a free service, eating up the server costs.

Two days ago (3 yrs post launch), a company in my space, whose name is COMPLETELY different (they rebranded years ago), message me on LinkedIn, telling me that they have a trademark on the name “The (companyname)”, (mine is companyname, so comanyname.io) and hence if I dont take it down, they’ll take legal action against me and file a UDRP.

I single-handedly launched this startup in 2017, doing everything from the name, to the branding, to the middleware, to the backend engine that drives the startup. I made $ 30, and this company that’s supposedly a multimillion dollar company is telling me to take it down.

I’m not sure if there is any point of me posting this, except I’m just sad. This is my baby, I put so much into it. And even though it doesnt make shit, I still proudly tell people to go to resumator.io. Yet there’s nothing I can do, except vent. I just feel really, really sad.

And honestly, it’s just pathetic. For a company making millions to go after me and threathen me with legal action, even telling me I must take it down by Tuesday. They rebranded years ago AWAY from that name and have a completely diff name. First the CMO came after me, then the CEO. Pathetic.

It’s a cruel world man.
