|Tell us about the market & founders, why is this a great opportunity?||The idea was born in a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu mat. Pedro and Ricardo are training partners and have felt since they met that they should join in a venture together, one in which business (Ricardo’s experience) and Behavioral Science (Pedro’s expertise) could be brought together. Ricardo is a hardcore traveler and was talking about the frustration of finding places where to go, as the idea started germinating in the breaks of sparring moments. After they sketched the idea, they talked to about a dozen developers who would go out of their way to explain how incredibly complex (and close to impossible) the project was. Then they met this really reserved developer who heard the idea, just answered “ok”, left the cafe, and sent them a programmed MVP two weeks after.|
