Pigments looking for co-founder/future team members


#1

Hi everyone,

I’m the founder of the startup PIGMENTS, a marketplace for print shops in South East Asia, so essentially we’re airbnb for print shops. You can find print shops online and then easily book your job on our platform to make your life easier (because working with print shops in SEA is a pain in the ass).

For more information check out the pitch deck: slides.com/andreasgalster/deck-1-2-3-4-5/

I’ve recently enrolled at an accelerator program called the Founder Institute and did a lot of validation and research for this idea. I’m now beginning to build the product to launch it with the first target market being the Philippines, Metro Manila to be specific. I have a strong background in print design and production, which is why I know how to solve most of the issues in the SEA printing industry.

I’m planning to use meteor with polymer for now. Deployment it not yet sure. I do have access to Microsoft BIZSPARK (150$ credits monthly), though I found it technically challenging, which is why I’m posting here.

I’m looking for people who are interested in this idea to join me, preferably people based in SEA. I’m not exactly a hardcore developer and developing stuff with meteor just takes quite long for me. My forte is design. I’ll be sort of ok with (painfully) developing the MVP for the product but I know it’s time to start building a team for this, especially since I’m starting my first investment pitching rounds in about 2 months and a good team is crucial for receiving funding. My goal is to be launching the MVP in two weeks.

Right now it’s just me, so I’m looking for people who believe in the idea either for exploring a co-founder role or future hiring (no budget yet, so hiring will be 1-2 months from now).

Some skills that would be appreciated:

  • Meteor
  • Polymer
  • WebGL
  • Integrating payment APIs
  • Working/integrating PDF technology and 3rd party software running in VMs
  • SEO knowledge

If you want to know more, shoot me an email to andreas@pigments.io

Thanks a lot :slight_smile:
