Whatever list of advise for a founder you read, there’s one I’ve kept violating for far too long: Don’t start alone
Budgetfuchs/Budget-Fox has been going since March, the app is getting useful and with just a few changes it should be ready for customers. This is in my eyes the ideal moment to get a second person onboard for these two things:
Product Ownership: I’ve out-grown this one. Budgetfuchs doesn’t have customers yet so I need a strong second opinion, someone to set course for this ship.
Marketing / Growth Hacking: Programmers can create amazing things, but without marketing it is completely worthless. I have a basic understanding and some ideas how to approach this but I’m also a very introverted person and no good at marketing.
If you think budgeting and accounting is awesome, if you keep your own household accounts or want to, if you didn’t have to look up “product owner” on Wikipedia, if you ticked off a box on your bullshit bingo when you read “growth hacking”, if aren’t afraid of working with a nerd on a lean startup (ha, another box ticked!) then please do write me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Want to get a better picture of where the app is at right now? Try the demo https://budgetfuchs.de/demo
PS: I’ve worked almost eight years for people I never met in person and who were six timezones away. Budgetfuchs will be a remote operation through-out, but in case you are near Linz, Austria, that’s just a fine.
