Explain what your startup/side-project does in under 10 words

Hey IHs!

If you've built something or are currently working on something, explain what it is, in under 10 words ✌


  1. 11

    In failory.com we interview failed startups!

    1. 7

      this is actually a really good site. It would be great if u could summarize the main fail points people keep coming up with. Like the 10 commandments to failure. You may have enough content to write a book later. maybe call it "zero to nothing"

      1. 1

        Oh, that is such a great idea! I have just noted it down :) Thank you very much.

    2. 2

      Sounds like the book Rework! Awesome idea!

    3. 2

      What a great resource of informational content and interviews! Also, well done on the Webflow site 😀

      1. 3

        Thanks for your kind words! I love Webflow. I don't understand anything of programming and I was able to create a website :0

    4. 1

      Hey Rich :wave: I can't seem to download the pdf! I've tried a few times. Can you please help me out. Thanks!

        I am sorry to hear that Hass! I have just sent you an email with the eBook. Hope you enjoy it!

    1. 3

      Sweet domain name.

      1. 1

        Thanks :) It sounds simple but took a lot of time to name it.

    2. 1

      Does it utilize some service like Amazon SES?

      1. 1

        Yes, you can configure service ...

        for email we support : ses / mandrill / postmark / sendgrid / mailgun

        for sms we support : twilio / plivo

        configure any service , save templates and start scheduling ..

        templates can pick data from variables or any API available on web

    XXXX connects companies && junior developers.

    (still deciding on a name)

    1. 1

      Now that is something I'll join! But I'm a senior dev 😭

    2. 1

      My brother would pay for this service.

      1. 1

        Cool, any chance you could tell me a little about what he's working on in an email? (my email address is on my profile)

    Teaches you hundreds of Spanish words, ultra fast - www.lokas.co (iOS)

    1. 1

      Are you planning to do it for other languages?

      1. 1

        Yes, but only if this one proves to make consistent money, and I reach a plateau in terms of revenue. I'm working evenings and weekends so I try to minimize complexity; adding a pair of language takes time and increases time spent on code maintenance, content creation and support.

        What language do you have in mind, if I may ask?

    Monetize your free content/app without using ads or micro-transactions - seedanddew.com

    1. 4

      Intriguing. But it would be more descriptive if you say "Monetize your free content/app by using X" instead of saying what it is not using. How does it work?

      1. 2

        That's true. Its a subscription for a coalition of sites. The subscription revenue is distributed out to partner sites based on views and engagement. So essentially users are paying to not see ads or be tracked in a frictionless way.

        1. 2

          Cool! I think there are good opportunities for new revenue models for content, given the diminishing return on ads. So this is probably a good time to be in that niche. Also I really don't like the development with paywalls for each and every site. I don't mind paying for content, buy having a subscription for each site seems like to much too ask both in money and administration from the user. Good luck!

    I have neutralized offshore agent accents so they can speak accentfree!

    1. 1

      Via training or audio transformation?

      1. 1

        when agents in the Philippines speak on the phone to clients they sound american

        1. 1

          They "sound American" because, they (1) were trained in American accents, or (2) their voice is transformed in real time using software, or (3) something else?

          1. 1

            oh i see. (2) transformed in real time. A man can sound like a young american girl. Why? do you have an interest in this area. if so explain please. thx
