We try our best to empower other companies to transform and become exponential. The key here is to emphasize that companies can build transformative experiences for their customers with AI and software. And as a company, we are about that.

We focus on design a lot. The design of our interface. The design of the user experience. It’s to provide that transformative feeling and power to a business, that they feel they are on a journey, a journey to achieve something.

Our motto is: Imagine. Create. Bundle. Grow. And we’ve built this culture both in our workplace, a remote organization with committed people from over six countries globally, and externally as well with our customer relationships.

I think we try to be ambitious and inspire every customer to imagine and have that creative spark as much as we do when we approach our work together.

Our mission is to transform companies by providing a rewarding and empowering experience through our B2B platform.

Tell us about yourself?

Elijah has a background in Design, Motion Graphics and Music. His inspiration from his past experiences has provided this vision for our company. We approach our technology and innovation like a designer and like an artist. We have to feel the product in front of us. It can’t just solve a problem. It has to transform the customer as they use the product. Our company’s central design pillar and inspiration come from Elijah, as a founding pillar and ideal in our company.

On the flip side, I am a business and operations guy with a background in Web3 and crypto, but more so on the regulatory side of things and from a consumer angle.

We met through a Bumble networking swipe, and at that time, he was looking for a business partner, and I was looking for another NFT project that was more fun than my prior experiences. And that was it. That was October 2021, in the middle of COVID-19.

If you could go back in time a year or two, what piece of advice would you give yourself?

As a company, we’ve definitely grown, and we have committed individuals from various parts of the world really committed to helping us out a lot, not only with operations but also with ideas, motivation, and ambition.

If I went back a year or two when we were much smaller, I would definitely say communication, staying transparent, and thinking. A business is only as successful as its ability to execute on its ideas. As a business and as a startup with limited resources, we have to be very structured and laser focused in our planning and execution. Time is money, even if no one is paying, and I think that’s the number one piece of advice I would give myself.

What problem does your business solve?

 Elijah Royaei
CEO and Founder Elijah Royaei

Our business solves the main problem of providing one single collaborative platform for businesses looking to implement and create unique AI and software solutions for their company. In a different way, we are a platform that allows a company to build its virtual business model, and we provide an ecosystem of tools and services to help them.

What is the inspiration behind your business?

We’ve been inspired to build a better version of Shopify and Fiverr but for businesses. Our main focus is to provide a platform that provides easy access for businesses to build custom generative AI solutions and product virtualization solutions within a services model.

What is your magic sauce?

We focus on designing and building a transformative experience for the customer through UI/UX. A product can’t just solve a problem. It has to reward the customer with more than that. It has to provide them with something more, with imagination, creativity, and ambition to achieve more. I think this is also what differentiates us from other models and why we are able to build lasting relationships with our community of users and clients.

They keep coming back to us because we are supporting them, not just their thinking, but their dreams, whichever step they are at in our product pipeline.

What is the plan for the next 5 years? What do you want to achieve?

We want our product to reach a level of sustainable revenue and a strong international reputation in the business community – that is, revenue in nine digits. Of course, that last part is a financial attribution.

The vision is to become a global player as the go-to platform for AI and our unique approval to problem-solving for clients within the global enterprise AI space for SMBs and larger Fortune 500 market movers within the next five years.

What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced so far?

The product-market continuum is about finding the right strategy to execute your built product onto the market.
