At this point we had something we felt was refined enough to start showing off. The app itself felt great to use and we decided this was the MVP we needed to start pitching. This was a big challenge for us as we are mainly designers / engineers. Our initial pitches were to local businesses we were familiar with. The most memorable of these for me was a pitch to a local chinese restaurant (Let me take a moment to Rep ShangWei Szechuan, if you are ever in Bethlehem Pennsylvania, the food there is phenomenal 😋) I and our designer YingYing Zhang ( Check her out at yingyingzhang.com) went for lunch and she took me by surprise by launching straight into a pitch for the app landing us a meeting with the owner that went wonderfully.
