We recently had a chat with Amelia Chen, founder of LoveByte. LoveByte is a mobile app that “provides a private space for two to communicate, share things and remember precious moments”. We talked to her about her journey as an independent start-up, and asked what advice she has for other budding entrepreneurs out there.
What made you decide to go down the path of an independent start-up?
How did you manage to gather all the people with the necessary skills?
How did you go about securing funding for your start-up – any tips?
What methods have you used to promote LoveByte, and which were the most effective?
What’s been the hardest part about running a start-up? The best part?
If you could go back and do things again, what would you do differently? What would you do the same?
Thanks for talking with us – I’m sure our readers will find your advice very useful. Anything else you want to add?
It’s good to have a idea, make sure you’re solving a problem that needs to be solved. It’s important to fall in love with what you do. It’s good to have a idea, make sure you’re solving a problem that needs to be solved. Ask yourself ‘how’ you will do it, but it’s more crucial to focus on the ‘why’ – that will be an incredibly useful motivation/reminder during the journey.
