Actually we have already experienced our first big problem which was the designing of the logo. It took us way longer than a design of the logo should take, we were reviewing it with the designer for almost 100 times. Even though it has cost us lots of money, at the end we have thrown it away. Now we just use a standard font. It is easy to read and easy to remember. It was a good exercise with stuff that can go wrong and now we’re moving fast and smoothly.
At the moment we are beta testing the webpage and receiving an enormous amount of feedback, which we are really thankful for and using that feedback to make our platform better. We want to be super agile, so we try to update FabGate at least twice a week. In the next weeks we will add some cool features, that we are currently working on. But we are slowly getting to the point when it is too much workload for two people and therefore we have started to look for investors and new people to join us.
The coding of FabGate started in a café. Soon enough we felt we need a calm place for work and therefore moved to the betahaus. I have been working in the betahaus for almost a year and love the fact, that I get to meet many people with various backgrounds and talk the business over with them. For instance we met Martin, who is a really cool guy. He gave us some tips on the website’s minimalistic design that we actually implemented. Max, who is a great lawyer and a co-founder of the betahaus also helped us a lot. I am a coffee addict, so I really appreciate the free coffee, too. The great thing about this place is, that there is always something going on. Thus anytime you want to take a break from work and socialize, you can come to the cafe to meet other people or attend something that is just happening around. There is a variety of stuff you can do in the betahaus. It never gets boring.
