I contacted in excess of 50 investors for my startup, and everybody said NO to us.
From Startup incubators to accelerators to private backers, I connected with everybody you can imagine.
However, no one was prepared to invest USD 25k for 10% so that we could leave our everyday hustle and focus on building the item.
Yet, for what reason do they express NO to us?
All I can detect from their reaction was that we don’t have some demonstrated history or an intermediary to qualify as a business visionary. (Institute or school).
My fellow benefactor (also my sibling), who is now 30, has bombed two times in school and doesn’t actually have a legitimate professional education with Zero corporate experience.
He used to drive a truck before Coronavirus and got on programming during the pandemic because of lockdown (Read this to know more about his journey)
Being a sibling, I know he is very dedicated and hyper-savvy in writing code.
I began my career by selling paper memberships in a modest community followed by working in a warehouse of D2C brands lastly in a software organization.
Just like in the past we know that we will sort out some method for building things up.
In the end, some insight won, and that’s what we understood “on the off chance that we could solve the issue for a little arrangement of individuals, we could make customers our investors” and we began building Float.
Next huge stage in our startup journey ??
Launching a Startup resembles flying a plane, not at all like here the customers pay you after the flight, not before the flight.
So we really want a long runway before a take-off (cash) and some fuel while we fly (more cash).
So, I began building a financial wellbeing net for myself as well as my sibling. I joined a SaaS startup and began making courses in the morning (3 am-10 am).
I used to sell those courses on skillshare and udemy.
I’m truly grateful to udemy and skillshare for putting food on my table.

From Selling Paper to Building a Tech Startup — A biography of mine
What are we building now?
While I was working in a tech organization I was frustrated by the work it expects to explain a straightforward integration guide in the item documentation.
From uploading various screen captures to writing about the different integration steps.
The page length was becoming more than the length of the extraordinary mass of china and, the user experience resembled reading a Wikipedia article (Text-weighty)
For instance, this organization has made a total webpage just to give a dashboard tour.
Fundamentally pasting numerous screen captures will stuff the webpage and not every person is open to reading an integration guide in plain text and pictures.
Surprisingly recordings are difficult to get up to speed for this situation.
So me and my prime supporter chose to solve this with a chrome expansion i.e Float.
So, Just turn it on and it will automatically take a screen capture of every one of your means and permits you to include text annotation the top of these stacked pictures.
Imagine this as a PowerPoint show with a progression of stacked pictures with text annotation on the top to explain an item guide.
Here are some famous use instances of float.
1.Show Item Tours on your website by Creating an engaging “attempt before you purchase” insight for your customers.
2. Support customers with item tutorials Make a library of interactive item walkthroughs, to assist your customers with getting begun rapidly.
3. Explain highlights or integration in your blog entry with float
