Am currently working on my Start Up which is an E-commerce platform. Am at the prototype stage, 50% in its development. As a graphic designer i have been doing the artwork for the application working with a web/mobile app developer. Currently the start up is fully self funded but i have done a few pitches to some investors who are non committal until i can present a working prototype, but have been pivotal in making me understand my target market more. My pitches to investors(seed funders) have been through graphic animation which have given them a clearer picture of my vision. My challenges have been mostly financial but over time i have diverted some funds from my photography and graphic design jobs. Having networks in the tech space has also helped me understand the industry more. I have also invested more on research with YouTube and business websites being my main source of information collection.
