Hey IH! Very excited and proud to announce my first startup Cardbox.
Cardbox is the one central place to digitally connect to the people in your life. It combines contacts and social networking in a way that, in hindsight, just makes so much sense (in my opinion).
I've had the idea for the app since 2014, and have attempted to build it with various co-founders since then. It didn't work out since we all volunteered, and people had to leave the project due to work and college.
Since I truly believed in the idea, I decided to try the Elon Musk route and just do everything myself. As a Product Designer with lots of web (JS and PHP) dev experience, but barely any mobile dev experience, I decided to start learning React Native in January last year.
I think I'll write more about that part of the journey later, since I'd like to recommend it to everyone. As a designer, being able to build your ideas without being dependent on others is so empowering!
Anyway, a little over a year later and the app is live! Check it out: https://cardbox.app/
Fellow solo founders: any good advice? I would be lying if I said that doing everything alone isn't a bit scary. Any feedback to the app is also very appreciated. Thanks!
