- After what we experienced during the TechCrunch Disrupt conference in San Francisco, there is only one conclusion: spreading our idea is just a matter of time - this is how Tom Kuzak, founder of INFORMATION DESIRED, summed up a three-day conference which gathered startups from around the world to change it.
- We met a great deal of interesting people here. Some of them examined us within 10 seconds, others gave us more time. There were both technological and financialquestions and we were challenged from every side - says Tom.
- Some were picking holes, others wanted to know how to invest in our project and others just wanted to become our clients. It's funny that even other startups that were exhibiting with us at Startup Alley, our neighbors, when they found out what we do they asked "Can you do it for us?"
"This"means what? Create and run their web service, invest in their presence online and provide them with a stream of valuable clients.
The reactions of many of our interlocutors during the conference were best summarized by one man whose opinion you can see on our website: "In San Francisco they call us crazy".
- One nice guy came to us, not by chance, he spotted us in the TechCrunch Disrupt catalogue. But he had no idea what we actually do. So he asked how exactly it works because he admitted he did not understand. When we started our explanations at some point he caught it and said: "It's impossible! This is suspicious, this is unrealistic, this is not the way it is done"- says Tom Kuzak.
We took a moment to explain it thoroughly and the effect was that not only did he believe that what we are doing is breakthrough buthe called us crazy - adds Tom Kuzak. In a meeting place for people who change the world we couldn’t get a better compliment.
