First interviews & first fuck-ups


It has been a month since the launch of Froggodoggo, a platform where companies can find founders looking for a side gig. This calls for a first evaluation...

So far we’ve received 37 applications (32 founders & 5 companies), invited 27 for a video call (23 & 4), scheduled 17 calls (14 & 3), conducted 13 calls (11 & 2), and finally accepted 8 (6 & 2). This means that about 70 % of the founders made it round after round, and thus 30 % were lost at each step. In the end, we accepted less than 20 % of the founders applying to Froggodoggo. In contrast, we accepted 40 % of the companies that applied. I think we expected such a distribution more or less but were surprised by some particular cases.

More details here (first blog post I've ever written 🙈 )
