Why did you decide to become a founder?

It was something I really missed and wanted to create, as there is no such platform on the market.

How did you find the problem and the solution?

As someone who loves dance, I’d like to know all about it.  But there is not enough information about dance and what is hot or not at one single place. I was looking for a platform where I could find everything. I also wanted  to look at old festival footage, like the first dance valley.

What surprised you the most about being a startup founder?

It is more a question of persistence than anything else.

What’s the coolest thing about being a founder?

Doing something you like, or at least trying to create something you are passionate about is the best thing that an entrepreneur can experience.

What’s the worst thing about being a founder?

It’s a long road and things don’t go as quickly as you expect.

If you can go back in time, what would you do differently?
