How Notler works
The Startup Magazine a few interview questions for Gil Dantas Co-Founder Notelr, to find out more about her startup.
How does your startup stand out against it’s competitors?
We have a talented and passionate team. Our team is defined by an amalgamation of different backgrounds, which creates fresh perspectives and drives our ability to solve problems in an innovative way. From economics and politics, technology and design, we offer an approach to things that are very unique.
Where did the idea for the startup come from?
We’re 3 passionate people that love writing their blogs. Coming from different backgrounds, our co-founder Gil Dantas used to write on politics and economics with a focus on Brazil. Jonathan Livne is a confessed foodie with a blog covering mouthwatering recipes, and Rohey Livne had a “tech” blog with all kind of interesting stuff to share – from product review to groundbreaking insights on startups and technology. We struggled to find solutions that will allow us to do what we love – writing – and earn money from our blogs. So we decided to take what we know best – blogging and technology – and combine with a product vision that makes the lives of bloggers easier by allowing them to retain the accountability and trust of their readers.
What is your business background, and what got you interested in startups?
Gil Dantas is a dropout Phd student in economics and political science, Jonathan Livne is a former architect and had other startups, and Rohey Livne is an engineer and holds a MBA from Canada. We truly believe there’s a problem out there that needs to be solved. Ultimately, we think we can do that job because of our unique vision and experience.
How long has the your startup been in the making, and who is the team behind the business?
We’ve been up since February, 2013.
- Jonathan Livne, co-founder, front-end development
- Gil Dantas, co-founder, marketing & community
- Rohey Livne , co-founder, CEO
- Vlad Vidican, manager, back-end development
What has been your biggest challenge so far as a startup owner?
To move fast under uncertainty. We went through a few processes of letting-go of an idea that was our source of motivation and drive. But we simply had to let it go and this was not easy.
In the coming year, what would you like to achieve with your business?
We want change the way bloggers monetize their content on the web. We want them to be accountable to their readership and offer products and services they truly believe in. We hope people will embrace our vision and from one year from now, we will become a known brand to bloggers.
If you could give one piece of advice to someone thinking about starting a business, what would it be?
Build something that people would look at you and think “WTF?” But then when you show it to them, they’ll go” Wow!That’s so simple!” Once you done that, the roads are open and you might be onto something interesting, exciting and innovative.
