The BizSpark startup of the day is Tibra Informatica, based in Brazil. You will find below an interview with Aldo Giovani Biagini, CEO of Tibra. All the best to them and congrats for being the startup of the day!
I’m a moderate geek. I’m the CEO.
I worked in a telecommunications company in Brazil.
I feel great to have my work seen and referenced. It´s good to be in Brazil and be a model for other innovative companies, in such an enviroment where innovation is starting being encouraged and invested.
My company’s mission is to make e-commerce popular between small and medium companies.
We were software developers, and after various clients came to us with the same problem, we thinked about a solution, studied the market, prepared a business plan and implemented it.
Yes. In fact, after three years after the beginning of the project, it’s ready and we’re trying to find an angel investor or a venture capital company to invest and help us develop the sales. We need US$ 250.000 to sell our platform’s services in large scale. It is important to say that, without this large scale sales, in last year we reached US$ 60.000 in gross income with this platform.
We have 8 employees, 4 developers.
We’re not hiring right now.
We develop using Microsoft .Net. We chose productivity.
In Brazil, building apps on top of social networks is a good idea.
It’s an essential program for startups.
Believe in your dream, but being skeptical at the same time, and plan hard before doing. Stay out of the crowd, be different.
Making it quick is making it once. Do a great planning before start coding.
