WORLD TOP 10. Here comes ccFOUND.
Are you investing in ccFOUND? Excellent. Our goal is to join the world’s TOP 10 giants.
Starting a big business is quite a challenge. The most successful startups have never done well at the beginning of their journey. Who has? The challenge is to invest money in people and their work as well as technology, this of course requires financing.
In addition, the product undergoes several changes in the development stage, in pursuit of perfection!
Let’s take a look at how the current giants started and compare our startup!
10 of the world’s largest firms confirm that ccFOUND is heading in the same direction. It’s a path that leads from a simple idea to billions of people who will buy that idea.
We start like those who are considered the best. We have a brilliant idea vetted by investors. We have a technology that we’re developing. So let’s compare ourselves:
1 AirBnB: from mattress to millionaire
It started in 2007 with a blog where colleagues Brian Chesky and Joe Gebbia put up an offer to stay overnight, in the living room of their own home, with breakfast, during a total invasion of architects and designers, for a conference in San Francisco. The hotels were occupied, so they put down mattresses and made $80 per guest per night.
They figured that since there might be a lot of people with vacancies,this could be a niche within the market that holds potential. They decided they just needed a website to handle the brokerage and hired IT specialist Nathanel Blecharchyk. That was the start of a company now valued at $10 billion. And to think that they came up with the idea because they were short on rent….
2Instagram: from manager to millionaire
Kevin Systrom was not content in his corporate development manager position at Google. This graduate of the renowned Stanford University sat down to develop his own app for sharing photos around the globe. After eight weeks, he was joined by tester Mike Krieger. They both decided that the app should be focused on photos only, and that was their shot at success.
3Pinterest: from board to millionaire
Ben Silbermann, a graduate from Yale University, broke his family legacy and decided not to become a doctor. He rubbed elbows with Google, then created his own app, but he came up with his golden shot in 2009. Together with Paul Sciarra and Evan Sharp they opened a website allowing users to pin images of specific fields/interests to designated boards. When 7,000 users joined, Ben sent a letter to each, with his own phone number to meet each of his customers.
4 Linkedin: from host to millionaire
Sometimes to test a great idea you need to turn to your closest friends. That’s how Reid Hoffman tested his LinkedIn service in 2003. He invited as many as 350 friends to his house for dinner, asked them to register their own profiles and join the network. The app, which he created with a team of former computer scientists from SocialNet and PayPal, grew slowly. There were days when only 20 people registered. By the end of the year, the app caught the attention of Sequoia Capital, which bet on the idea and began seriously funding development.
5 Uber: a cab for billions
How can you find a ride in the right place at any time? Travis Kalanick and Garrett Camp began to wonder, after an arduous stay in Paris. Thus was born an app that has been credited with revolutionizing labor relations. There was even talk of an economic effect of uberization, which was supposed to be the freedom of workers and their assumption of responsibility for the business. After all, many people were given the means of work (a car) but the rest belonged only to them and, of course, to the app. It turned out that an anonymous employer works much better than a supervisor in a corporation. Lots of people changed their lives, but most notably Travis and Garret joining the ranks of billionaires.
6 WhatsApp: without wiretapping to fortune
Jan Koum and Brian Acton, two friends and colleagues at Yahoo, were frustrated with the idea of putting so many ads on every page. In 2007, they left Yahoo to reset their minds for a year. They both applied for jobs at Facebook, but were unsuccessful. After many ups and downs, they launched WhatsApp in 2009 with a clear goal that their service would definitely not include any ads and that they would focus on providing users with a reliable, gimmick-free and hassle-free experience.
7 Twitter: from 300 words to 300 million
At a board meeting of the company that hosted podcasts on Odeo, Jack Dorsey demonstrated the possibilities that a short message communication platform would provide. These were simple text messages in the form of an app. It was surprising to find that you could cross-connect in a stadium with thousands of people being at a single soccer game in seconds.
8 Facebook: from simple idea to billionaire
A 19 year old from Harvard, Mark Zuckerberg, started a student communication portal with such a simple format, by testing more user interfaces and constantly changing according to their natural development, through many trials the service expanded its reach to billions of users.
9 ALLEGRO from an antique lamp to the moon
One sunny day, Dutchman Arjan Bakker, who came to Poland in the early 90s, came up with the idea to build a Polish version of eBay. Bakker felt instinctively that here is a nation that would like an online journey through hundreds of listings. It is hard to believe but Allegro.pl was launched one December night, from the basement of a computer parts warehouse in Poznan city. In a decade Allegro chased away Ebay, Amazone or Alibaba, the global giants and has become the nr1.
Today, Allegro has 21 million accounts and 194 million visits per month, making it one of the top ten global e-commerce sites and the IPO valued at 12 billion euro.
See for yourself that ccFOUND from the very beginning only needs like AirBnB a website that supports the intermediation of expertise and advice for the users who are in different locations (like Instagram).
Our CEO Piotr Michalak is a man with great vision, an outstanding expert on blockchain technology, a millionaire, and yet he knows very well that to check a great idea you need to prove it with clever individuals (like Linkedin). He is on a hotline with many experts who critically support the development of the company and technology.
On the way to perfection, we’re testing more user interfaces (as Facebook did) because we want to make it look so simple. We will also definitely not provide any ads here (like WhatsApp), so that the user can calmly focus on what is important to him.
We already know that we will revolutionize the labor market (like Uber) because many of those willing to sell their expert advice and tips won’t have to go through the hassle of setting up their own websites, paying the bills for domains and servers, and then hitting up their content. Everyone who publishes something smart and proven in ccFOUND can be an employer. Everyone will be heard because there are as many questions as there are answers, globally and cross connected like Twitter and WhatsApp.
