My mistakes & learnings building two startups, case studies of successful founders, and exciting side projects. Delivered in your inbox each Wednesday.
Hope the past week was good. Working from home is surely not easy and can get boring sometimes. Even I find myself to be a less sane version of what I was earlier last week 😑.
To ease a bit of that boredom, enjoy my side project where you can chat with Trump :-). Do let me know what you think about it!
Anyway, let me get to the story that you might be waiting for.
Do you know of a billion-dollar company that made a world-class app in 3 weeks? What's more, it all started as a Hackathon Project!
I know the subject line is a giveaway, but it's none other than Tinder by Sean Rad.
With over 10 million everyday users and a mind-boggling 20 billion matches made, it's hard to imagine that Tinder originally started out as Matchbox, a Hackathon project.
Rad, a serial entrepreneur, immediately saw the potential his app had after he won the Hackathon with it, and within 3 weeks, built a launch-ready product.
