[STARTUP SERIES]: Mapped – An Online Community Solving Founder Needs



FOUNDER: Tasos Valtinos

THE IDEA: What is the problem being solved by your startup / business?:

85% of entrepreneurs globally fail because they do not know what to do next. Also, finding solutions relevant to their startup’s case is very hard.

That’s what our app solves. Once you ask a question, our app shows you what has already been done by other founders and industry experts.

THE FOUNDER’S STORY: When and how did you come up with the idea for the business?:

I am originally from Greece and since I was 20 years old I have been living abroad. I have a BSc in Economics & Finance, but right after university, I fell in love with Tech.

For the last 5 years, I have been working as a Data Engineer in big tech companies and early-stage startups.

I am also a FrontEnd Developer & UI/UX Designer. Mapped came up as an idea in 2019, after speaking to a lot of founders and realizing that a lot of them fail or quit because they do not know what to do next or they cannot find solutions relevant to their case.

I saw the opportunity for a much-needed tool that will make founders’ lives easier. Then Mapped was born. The best QnA app for startup founders to learn and grow. We have now been live for 8 months.

WHO IS THE CUSTOMER: What is the typical profile of your target customer? Where would they be located?:

Startup Founders, Entrepreneurs, Founders, Makers, Business Owners
