Bootstrapping and Prototyping
In my spare time, I began laying the groundwork by:
- Working on an initial prototype.
- Conducting extensive market research.
- Delving into Romanian business registration laws.
Team Formation and Legal Consultations
Our team formation strategy was crucial. We:
- Recruited legal consultants to help comprehend the Romanian business registration landscape.
- Analyzed competitors to identify gaps and opportunities.
In our bid to streamline and save time, we implemented innovative solutions:
- Utilized technology to automatically read digital documents, particularly IDs.
- Integrated GPT-4 for AI-powered support to expedite customer service replies.
Journey with Innovation Labs
Our project garnered significant momentum through our association with Innovation Labs, a renowned Romanian pre-accelerator.
- Our Minimum Viable Product (MVP) was unveiled in late April.
- We successfully progressed past the local and regional stages.
- As we reached for the national stage, we showcased our project to a vast audience of over 200 presenters.
Our efforts didn't go unnoticed. After our grand presentation during the finals of Innovation Labs:
- Prominent media outlets like MarketWatch, Digital Journal, Start-up.ro, Libertatea.ro and more spotlighted Incorpo.ro, amplifying our reach.
Platform Launch and Growth
Post-launch, our journey was characterized by:
