The BizSpark company of the day is Hibernater, based in Singapore. Hibernater as the software to allow users to easily save and resume their work. You will find below an interview with Chua Khim Teck of Hibernater. All the best to them and congrats for being the startup of the day!
Chua Khim Teck and Hoon Thien Rong are currently an undergraduate in Nanyang Technological University under School of Computer Engineering. We are currently developing Hibernater which allows users to save and resume their working states at different computers. Think of it like Hibernate on Windows but on different computers, of course the list of applications supported is still increasing.
Both of the founders run a web solutions company developing websites and managing for them.
Khim Teck was thinking hard about what to do for his Final Year Project back in Ngee Ann Polytechnic. An everyday problem happened to came up in his mind: Having trouble resuming his work everyday in school, though there is laptop, but he does not like the idea of carrying 2KG of load to school just for surfing and report editing. Thus the idea of having to save and resume the current working states was created.
Hibernater as the software to allow users to easily save and resume their work. Currently there are premium versions which start from as low as $1 a month. Affordable to the mass market.
The general users who switch between multiple computers.
Currently funded by Azione Capital.
Most of our users are from Singapore, but we seek to expand our user base internationally since Hibernater is an international software. We might localize our software if there are interest from non-English communities.
We are looking for suitable candidates sales and marketing positions.
Windows platform currently, most of the users from our target market comes from the windows platform.
Currently Hibernater is the only service in the market, alot of people confused about backup/synchronizing applications but Hibernater is not about backup/synchronizing. Hibernater is about resuming your working applications to where you left before you logoff.
Internet connected applications which allow users to work anywhere seemlessly
It's great, we get to save tremendous cost in our research and development. Furthermore we get to support more windows applications for Hibernater.
Working hard is the key.
