TORONTO, ON, December 12, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The CEO of Rendezvous Mobile Inc (www.joinrendezvous.com), Michael Brunet, is launching an app in under 3 weeks from Today available for free on iPhones all for under $1,000 and a lot of sweat equity. Their costs to date include github at $7.00 a month for 3 months, $400 for the incorporation, $25 in parking for VC meetings, $30 in website domain purchasing, and that's about it. ---
Michael Brunet, with no coding experience is launching an app that may soon be one of the largest iPhone apps available to download with the help of a co-founder he found by posting a free classified ad on Kijiji and a computer science student he found through a government agency called InnovationFactory located in Hamilton, Ontario.
How to Recruit a Technical Co-Founder
"Coders see a lot of people trying to launch software on a shoestring budget, why my co-founder chose me is because of 3 things which few founders take the time to do before approaching technical co-founders. One - I had a full business plan complete, over 50 pages with a solid revenue model. Two - I was design savvy enough to come up with the wireframes of the entire app using software called Balsamiq. Lastly, the idea I had was unique and not just another copycat Groupon or copycat Fiverr." says Michael Brunet, CEO of Rendezvous Mobile.
How to Come up with a Winning Idea
"This is the hardest part. I can't say this part is easy. I think the idea has to come to you, either you think for days, weeks, months until something good comes to your head - or you look at other ideas out there and try to make it better. For me, I have been trying to come up with a Saas (Software as a Service) idea for over three years now, and this one got me fueled up enough to start working 12 hour days on." Michael explains.
How to Raise Angel Money
"To date, we have not raised a penny, so I am not the most qualified to talk about this. I've had a couple meetings with some angels so far but both said they want to see the final product before investing or even talking about valuation. At first, it was pretty disheartening not to get the answer I was hoping for, but in the long run - not having any money to date as made our app a lot stronger. Because of our lack of cash, I found out about growth hacking, and came up with a few very valuable growth hacking strategies built right into our app - which we may not have thought about adding had we been flush with cash."
