Diary of a startup
Feb 12 Skipped, opened with Oleg and Misha tire. We work by ourselves, took Shuhrata as a maintenance worker from the construction site. Passing place, the queue of customers from morning till night, the business flooded.
Mar 9 Tired of accounting in a notebook and a mess in the warehouse. We hired a girl, installed her computer with 1C, everything will now be entered into the database. Finally finished arguing about the name, won my: "World of tires" - briefly, accurately and very capaciously.
Apr 12 1C is of course a bomb! It can take everything into account, and even steer the business. We hired a programmer to finish her a little. Soon the notebook can be thrown out!
May 17th Accounting is still a bit failing, but you can already see how everything will be cool when we finish. They took the second programmer to speed up. From failures, we insure the good old notepad, but his days are already numbered. Over the weekend, played with the designer and designed our first site. Go online!
Jun 8 Updated version 1C, very cool, fire! And although all our improvements have disappeared, it does not matter - we will quickly repeat them and even make them better. To speed up hired java-programmer, tester and project manager.Let's make Industry 4.0 out of our tire service, it will be a breakthrough!
Jul 20 Customers apparently piled on vacation. Notebook says there are only eleven purchases since July. But in 1C it is clear that thirty five wheels were repaired, seven punctures were repaired and 940 grams of balancing weights were installed. Big date taxis!
Aug 19 Lured away from a nearby data scientist coffee shop. In just three days, he calculated that as the temperature decreases by two degrees, the number of customers grows by 9.5%, and with rain it drops by 5.7%. And while we are waiting for dry and cold weather, the team connects the balancing machine to the cloud.
Sep 19 Our programmers are geniuses! On the knees wrote a mobile application. Now all the graphics are at hand and even there is a machine speed control from the phone. The blessing of the clients was the beginning of the season and Shukhrat plowing 24/7 We also do not sachet - we are introducing Agile and repairing a new office.
Oct 10 Clean up our everything! We figured out how to combine all the tire fittings of the country into one network. We saw for them the marketplace and create a single tire ecosystem. While we are testing everything on Shukhrat. He certainly aches and asks for money to be added for this, but nothing will soon realize how much automation simplifies his life.
Nov 4Shukhrat quit - ran back to the construction site and we decided to temporarily close the tire. Moreover, there is enough work without it. We started a blog on Habré, a channel in Telegram, we are going with a report to the blockchain conference in Barcelona. Let's tell about our concept tire-as-a-service. It will be a revolution!
Dec 15 Until the project took off, with the money falls tight. Two weeks ran on investment funds and business angels. But these damn capitalists are too greedy - no one agrees to give a million in 10% of our startup, although we are worth a lot more. As a result, they tightened their belts and took over six consumer credits at once. We start to prepare ICO.
