Mobile Apps/Web Development
At college I met Alejandro so I approached him with creating a mobile app company – making our own apps and making them for other businesses. We moved to a garage. We were six months there. We recruited more cofounders, but they didn’t last. They didn’t believe in what was going to happen after those six months. Those first six months, we earned 20 thousand dollars. We were able to present to INTECO, who accepted us to the incubation program. That was in January 2014, and we had a four person office. Six months later we moved to a six person office. Pixnabi began to create its own merchandise.
They began to recognize us as the mobile app company. Agencies are removing their design departments; that’s where Pixnabi enters. Pixnabi creates all of the technology and design for agencies. In December of last year we moved to this space – 1300 x 725 sq. ft. Growth required us to hire more people – not only programming experts but marketers, publicists, project managers. We had to move.
Another important thing, from experience, is to know how to choose your cofounders. Our team started out with more than just me. The others sometimes call me, repentant, telling me they’re there “if you need me.” Now I don’t.
