How long have the founders known one another and how did you meet? Have any of the founders not met in person? The two met at a tech startup in 2018. Which category best applies to your company? Community. How many founders are on the team? 2. How far along are you? Twos is available on the app store and at TwosApp (dot) com. How long have each of you been working on this? How much of that has been full-time? Please explain. Over the course of 6 years, Twos has been rebuilt 3 times. The Two began working on Twos full time in March and May of 2021, respectively. . Are people using your product? Yes. How many active users or customers do you have? If you have some particularly valuable customers, who are they? If you're building hardware, how many units have you shipped? 39 DAUs and 160 MAUs and growing weekly. Two of our biggest advocates are a self-proclaimed “notes nerd“ and top producing real estate agent. Do you have revenue? No. Anything else you would like us to know regarding your revenue or growth rate? We are not currently focused on generating revenue because Twos will always be free to use. We started a new go-to-market strategy helping local businesses communicate information to their customers using Twos which will generate more awareness and promote growth. If you are applying with the same idea as a previous batch, did anything change? If you applied with a different idea, why did you pivot and what did you learn from the last idea? Twos has been built three times. Each time, we change our approach, but our vision and virtues stay the same, to become the biggest network of private and social information for people to see the value in writing things down. . If you have already participated or committed to participate in an incubator, “accelerator“ or “pre-accelerator“ program, please tell us about it. N/A. Why did you pick this idea to work on? Do you have domain expertise in this area? How do you know people need what you're making? We've experienced the power of writing things down personally, and believe we have the best system to enable people to write and remember more. After studying existing solutions and listening to what people like and don't like about them, everyone would benefit from using Twos. What's new about what you're making? What substitutes do people resort to because it doesn't exist yet (or they don't know about it)? Twos is a system of days, lists, and things, which allows people to quickly capture and organize anything they need to write down. Currently, people use daily planners, post-it notes, Apple notes, texting/emailing themselves, etc., which all lack at least one aspect that Twos provides. Who are your competitors, and who might become competitors? Who do you fear most? Notion, Apple Notes, Evernote, Roam, notebooks, paper, sticky notes, email, and other productivity/calendar/task apps. Twitter, Facebook, and Google could become competitors if they incorporated private capturing of information. We fear Notion the most, but their business model focuses on enterprise customers instead of consumers. What do you understand about your business that other companies in it just don't get? Immediately capturing any piece of information is the most important part. If it is not quick, easy, and organized, people will not take the time to write, and forget more things. How do or will you make money? How much could you make? We will make money through advertising (on the social side) and eventual acquisition. The revenue potential of Twos is exponential, but we predict it will be billions per year. How will you get users? If your idea is the type that faces a chicken-and-egg problem in the sense that it won't be attractive to users till it has a lot of users (e.g. a marketplace, a dating site, an ad network), how will you overcome that? Our go-to-market strategy helps local businesses communicate information to their customers. People will become familiar with concise, valuable information and associate that with Twos to help us grow. Have you incorporated, or formed any legal entity (like an LLC) yet? Yes. What kind of entity and in what state or country was the entity formed? Delaware C Corp.
