Announcement: Pivot #WeAreBack
We are back & stronger than before!
Dear Crowdholders, some of you who’ve been on this platform for a while may still remember us and we’d like to let you know what had happened with us. For others, feel free to skip this announcement and move on to tasks (first one is coming up on 4/12/2018 - hence tomorrow) :)
We started off aiming to disrupt the world of social media with a clear vision of making this technology-driven world more human again. In order to do this, we’ve created a platform (https://impromptme.com/) designed to speed up online interactions and bring people together IRL as quickly as possible. We got a ton of useful and generally positive feedback from you here and from others as well. BUT…
We’ve realised that with the limited resources we were operating with, we’d not be able to reach a substantial amount of users who’d be a) immediately interested in actively using our app and b) located in the same area at the same time to create substantial traction, hence make our app appealing to investors.
What we’ve realised though is that there is a much better immediate use for our technology right now - at conferences & conference-like events. Hence why we’ve pivoted and started building Imprompt.Me Conference 7 months back.
There are over 750,000 conferences happening in EU and US each year which people attend primarily for the purpose of networking and our core feature of simplified meetup scheduling has a great added value for these events (more in the project description). Of course, this feature itself would not be enough so we’ve started building other features commonly required at conferences and far more features will come in the future.
Needless to say that we are definitely not giving up on our original vision. We are simply adjusting our approach in such a way which is desired by the current market where we have a real opportunity to grow our team, our company, financial stability and community around us to such extent, which will (hopefully) allow us to re-launch our original product (Community app) in the near future. We are looking forward to your feedback on tasks which will follow shortly and we truly hope you will be as supportive & helpful as you once were towards our startup!
Btw: The first task is coming up tomorrow but in a meanwhile, I'd love to hear your thoughts about the pivot if you have any!
I'll be in touch,
co-founder & CEO
