Here’s a video of my demo at New York Tech Meetup this week. The one rule for the meetup—‘you can’t talk about business model’—really took me out of my comfort zone.
I got good feedback after the event. (A lot of people actually thanked me for bring the first black woman they’d ever seen present at an event like this—which made me happy & sad at the same time.) But the best feedback came from reading people’s blog posts about the demos & hearing the way they paraphrased what Kollecto was all about. My favorite quote was this:
“Kollecto… reminds me of an amalgamation of Pinterest, Pandora Radio, and StumbleUpon for buying art.” - Max
I found that comment to be great indirect constructive feedback: a great reminder to stay focused on doing one clear thing with Kollecto. Right now, I feel like Kollecto is a hybrid between StumbleUpon for art & Share Some Style for art and I think we need to hone in on one of those directions sooner rather than later.
Really great experience. Thank you NYTM for having me on the stage.
