Some weeks ago I published Selected for a Startup School and now this program is about to finish. Time goes fast. This past month has been very intense, I’ve met a lot of new people, I’ve received severe critics, I’ve been told to have a very expensive hobby as a startup (several times) but I’ve laughed a lot, I’ve learnt even more and have never been happier. I remember my first pitch, I had 3 minutes and forgot my speech in second number two. It’s been quite tough to be in front of 50 engineers who don’t believe in “your opinion” but in data. However, I started convincing them with numbers and my opinion started to matter. And all of a sudden one of them told me that he would actually pay for my product. Shortly after my first customer arrived.
Something was starting to improve.
First of all, thank you to all of you who have done my survey I couldn’t have come up with all those great ideas or points of view. I had to create this wall to better visualize all the ideas.
Also, Jesus became my team member and took leadership in the technical part of the project. He is a iOS genius and even better person! We chose Julius as a name for our startup (but it’s not definitive!) and started to do the hard work.
Julius became an online tool that helps you to create architecture itineraries based on your personal preferences.
We did a prototype of the idea of which we had to cut some parts for the MVP which is going to be an iPad app. These are some possible screenshots of the app.
Which style do you like best?
1. Black and White– Image background
2. Grey Tones– Mostly solid color
So which style feels more appropriate for a traveling app? By the way, the logo is a “J” but mainly a compass. And the name “Julius” came from a book I read when I was a child that was about a kid who had his own particular way of seeing the world. We believe Julius is this cool guy who knows his city by heart and brings you to this amazing (and sometimes hidden) pieces of architecture. I’m quite in love with this name but as I’ve said before it is not definitive!
The Demo Day at Tetuan Valley is a public event so if you’re around Madrid this 4th of December you’re more than welcome to come 🙂
