Are you curious about what your trendy neighbors are buying and where they're buying it? I recently interviewed Peter Babiy and Surge Stefoglo, two of the founders of a new app called Slync. The app allows you to discover what others around you are purchasing. Users post a picture, the price, and the location of the item purchased. Whether it's your daily coffee, a new pair of sneakers, or a new iPad, Slync helps you find it near you.
In this interview we discuss:
- Where the idea came from
- How they validated the idea by asking strangers at the mall
- The challenges of building a mobile app and overcoming thoughts of "giving up"
- Advice for anyone looking to build a mobile app
- Their vision for the future of Slync
