Dan and Anthony of Zeebu Mobile are successful graduates of the Lead to Win program and running at full throttle. From a standing start about three months ago they have in that time developed BabyGO! and Super BabyGO!, been approved for RIM App World, become a featured app and generated thousands of downloads to make it to #6 on Top 100 Free apps list in the last two weeks alone. Next stop is revenue generation. If only I had TheCodeFactory seed fund active these guys are a bet I would definitely take. $0 to revenue in 3 or 4 months ... remarkable.
Following fast behind them are the Twegather team of Chris, Igor, Jean-Claude, Pascal, Teresa and the rest of the team. From idea to beta in 4 months. Next stop: a bullet proof app, then growing the user base with monetization built in. From idea to $ with a budget of under $100 in less than 6 months ... most awesome and also a fundable opportunity.
The key success factors in building a successful web app are IMHO:
- Ability to Scale
- User acceptance
- An innovative
- “Kick Ass” application
Both start-ups are practitioners of throwing spaghetti at the wall seeing what sticks and then capitalizing on the opportunities. . Stay tuned for future updates on the progress ... . Ian Graham
