Why are you specifically interested in the selected program? If the program is with a corporate partner, how do you envision engaging with them?. After reading the Q&A with Gregory Ruiz, I believe that Twos can change the world and save people's lives. We are looking for an opportunity to get off the ground and get it in as many people's hands as possible starting with an accelerator with a proven track record.. You may select one second choice program:. Why are you interested in this 2nd choice program? If the program is with a corporate partner, how do you envision engaging with them?. I know that we have an extremely strong founding team willing to face adversity in order to achieve our dreams. We will not give up until we have exhausted our options and it seems like that is in line with the Seattle program as well. We have also spent a couple of months in Seattle working for a former employer, Trustwork.. Company & Vision. Please describe your company and the problem you're solving in 280 characters:. Twos is the best place to write things down and will prevent people from forgetting things they want to remember for the rest of their lives. Leading to more human connections, fond memories, and living life to its fullest.. How is your solution uniquely addressing this problem?. We are the only app in the world dedicated to helping people remember things. We accomplish this by making the experience quick, easy, and accessible. We store our pieces of information individually of the list it is on allowing you to write anything down and quickly reorganize them into lists. We also have great branding and the intent of changing the world through information and writing things down.. How will your company change the world? What is the big picture and vision?. We will create relationships, record people's life experiences, provide information that will save lives, become the new way of presenting/accessing information easily, and change the way people remember the things that matter to them the most. Personal reflection is a virtue of Twos and giving people a place to write their thoughts down will allow for more inner peace, less anxiety about things you are forgetting, and provide nostalgia to better days. We also intend of creating an online personal assistant that will make recommendations for potential purchases/services based on the things you write down. Articles and websites are crowded, Twos is quick and simple.. Team & Commitment. Please explain why your team is uniquely qualified to solve this problem. How long have you been working together and how did the co-founders meet? Is there someone on your team building your technology?. Parker has been on a journey to change the world through his mobile applications since he taught himself how to program in 2015 at the University of Vanderbilt. He has personally dealt with the lack of solutions to write your thoughts down (along with other random things) when he was dealing with depression his freshman year. Parker set out to create Twos due to his personal experience with the lack of good places to put your thoughts, needs and wants. Parker and Joe met each other at a bootcamp for another tech startup called 'Trustwork' while their working relationship was shallow, their personal connection grew over the years until Joe joined the company full-time this year. Parker is the only developer and Joe fills in the rest of the needs as they arise.. I think you could hype me up a bit more in regards to Trustwork. Maybe not making it sound like I was just doing the bootcamp. Second front-end developer, 4th engineer at the start-up. Maybe also a note about leaving Google. All just validation of experience. If accepted into the program, can all founders participate in the accelerator full-time? See the status of each program regarding in-person or fully virtual operations at www.techstars.com/covid. Yes - we are fully committed to getting Twos off the ground regardless of the time, effort, and any challenges along the way.. Traction. Please provide your revenue/customer/user growth KPIs or metrics. Include totals and month-over-month growth for the last six months. If your product is not yet in the market, how are you tracking progress - ie. LOIs/MOUs, waitlist sign-ups, or other indicators of early market demand?. MAUs: March 43, Apr 65, May 88 (we only have 3 months because that is when we started tracking those metrics). MAUs are people who have used the app 5 days in a month exclusive of one another. We also have a merchandise website that has sold 14 products in just over a month.. How do you plan to acquire customers/users?. Through education about Twos, making the product better, corporate partnerships, working with influencers and other high profile networkers. We would also like to make advertisements - both online and in person. We also want to create the information that people are seeking out in Twos. As well as creating a social network for things and lists that people want to share, have in common, or want to save to their own Twos. We genuinely think this can be bigger than google if we execute correctly.. If you have applied to Techstars before, what’s changed since your last application?. Funding & Runway. Please explain any capital raised to date and terms:. $12,222 personally funded by Parker and Joe.. What is your monthly burn and how much runway do you have?. Our monthly burn is $28 for all operating expenses, $150 for the app store keyword 'Twos' so $178. Our runway is relatively endless when living expenses are not included. Even with living expenses, no less than 2 years.. Competition. Please list names and websites of 3-5 of your competitors:. Minimallist, Craft, Apple Notes, Evernote, Unit, Notion. Please list all shareholders (including founders, employees and investors) of the company that own at least 5% equity, including their title and percentage:. Parker Klein: 58% Ownership. Joe Steilberg: 22% Ownership. Unvested: 20% Equity. Would co-founders and employees like to receive additional information and other opportunities from the corporate partners of the programs to which you have applied?.
