Kwasi and Dennis are somewhereto_ space users, tech entrepreneurs and founders of Bringz App. We’ve been talking to them about how free space has helped them get their ideas off the ground.
What are you currently working on?
We are currently working on launching our app, Bringz. Bringz is the sweet spot between Eventbrite and Instagram. We’re the middle ground with a 360 degree model. People can ticket their events but also see growth within a connected community.
Currently we’re testing our new product to see what people are receptive to.
What has having free space from somewhereto_ meant to you?
At the beginning, we didn’t think we needed a physical space. We were running the business out of our bedrooms and online. But we realised we needed a place for meetings, to connect with one another, so we’ve started using co-working space through somewhereto_.
Knowing there’s always the support of somewhereto_ to come back to means there’s one less headache and we can focus on growing our brand and establishing ourselves.
Lots of young people want to work on their ideas but don’t know how to go about it, somewhereto_ offers something to the community that can help young people find their feet.
What advice would you give someone looking to do something similar?
Start. There’s a lot of ideas flying around, there’s a lot of excitement. Just start and see where it goes. Make mistakes and learn from them and you’ll make your product much quicker.
Identify a problem you can solve. If you have passion for solving problems you’ll be able to be relentless and persevere. That relentlessness will lead to your personal success.
You don’t have to suffer in silence, someone will always have the answer. A resource I use everyday is Tech Crunch.
If you were given free space at 10 Downing Street for the day, what would you do?
We would set up a career coaching workshop and invite people who have never had the chance to attend one before.
I’d also sit in the PM’s chair if he has one!
