Lessons learnt from failure: from Drimm.in to Bunch

An interesting product does not necessarily translate into a viable business. This is a common mistake first-time entrepreneurs make: they invest a lot of time and energy in building a nice-to-have product that eventually fails. Back in 2014, Drimm.in monitored all your social media activity, stored your interests and turned them into actionable items. They were part of the first batch of MVP Academy and seemed to have promising perspectives ahead.  

And still… a couple of months after graduating the program they closed doors. How and why did this happen and why did they decide to start again with Bunch, an event networking app? Andrei Diaconu, Co-Founder of Bunch, kindly accepted our invitation to share their experience and the lessons learnt along this journey.
