After several weeks of working together with Zook, I think it is time to introduce him to the community and let you guys know about some latest developments here at WhoaVerse.
A few weeks ago, I meet Zook (Economics student at University of Zurich) and after a lot of talking, we decided to turn WhoaVerse, my student side project into a self-sustainable business. Zook was a long-time reddit user and both he and I share the same view when it comes to ethical marketing, user privacy and most importantly, finances. You may have already seen some of his ideas turned into action in the past few weeks. Behind the scenes, he is working on things like business and financial planning as well as tying important connections with people that can “get things done” in order to help set up WhoaVerse as a legal entity in Switzerland and secure funding for initial costs and our first employees.
We have decided to go with Switzerland primarily because Swiss Law offers a great deal of freedom and allows us to have a clear no-censorship policy. Zook will keep you updated with business-related stuff while I work on the technical side of things.
We will create the subs /v/WhoaVerseBizdev and v/WhoaVerseMarketing in order to gather ideas and opinions from the community about how WhoaVerse should move forward with respect to marketing strategy, business and product development.
Feel free to share your opinions and wishes for the future of WhoaVerse there. Zook will moderate those subs and make sure the community updated as well as involved in the current developments of our platform!
