Evan Leong and I Founded Fount because the company we worked for was going through a corporate restructure and we were worried about being relocated, or worse, losing our jobs.
This came to a head one night when we decided to go out for some drinks.
After hours of talking, we both kept coming back to the realization that our dream “job” wasn’t really a job at all – it was to be entrepreneurs.
We began brainstorming and I told him about an idea I had for a business networking app geared towards entrepreneurs. The app would allow for a user to quickly search for someone’s name and get a load of details that would allow you to determine if they were all hype, or if they actually meant business.
This brainstorming session formed the basis for Fount – an app that connects entrepreneurs by proximity.
For instance, users could type in a keyword such as “graphic designer” and instantly a list of graphic designers would populate. Simple, clean, and effective.
It took us 5 months to find app developers through a friend of a friend thus validating the need for this app. They quit on us, so Evan took it upon himself to learn how to code and get our beta version in the app store. We have since been testing and gaining user feedback to create the ultimate app for entrepreneurs to get in touch with the contacts they need.
