How One Startup Grew From Another

Ivan Efimov @siic

Greetings! My name is Ivan, I am a product designer. A bit of history today. This happened about 1.5 years ago when I was working on my first thing. At that time, I was interested in blockchain technology and I decided that I could make a product for designers with such technology on board. When my team and I realized that we would soon run out of funds to implement a full-fledged application, I started looking for investments. However, to my surprise, I found that it is complicated and almost impossible if you do not have the necessary connections or you live far from the local "silicone valleys". Having spent a lot of time establishing contacts and searching for investors, I realized that not only me but most of the new entrepreneurs are experiencing such problems. Over time, my list of investors has grown from a couple of tens to several tens of thousands of bonds, which may be useful to startups at an early stage of development or for those who are preparing to attract another round of investment. is ready to help with this!
I will be glad to answer any questions. Thank you for reading to the end.
