Hello everyone and welcome to our blog,
My name is Tahina RABETSITONTA, I am the founder of Aycoo. I have always been fascinated with creativity and innovation since my earliest childhood. Steve Jobs inspired me because of his passion for simple yet beautiful things. Although he was not a designer, he found a way to fulfill his dream. And that aroused my interest in the “creative world”.
As I grew up, I also discovered a new personality through Bill Gates who helped me find my way as a software developer. These two incredible characters hugely influenced my life choices.
So today I am a developer, specializing in “Xamarin” which is a Microsoft product that can create iOS, macOS, and Android apps. In my free time, I spend a lot of time browsing the web and I am particularly amazed by Dribbble and Pinterest which became my favorite websites.
As a freelance developer, I particularly enjoy the “ideation step with the designers” which involves finding the identity of an application or a company. I appreciate every moment of development and complex problem-solving. This always gives me shivers and I like that.
That’s why I have created Aycoo to support developers from “the craft industry” so that together with brilliant designers, they can create original hand-made items and both succeed in the entrepreneurship business.
The council corner for creative entrepreneurs
Throughout this blog, we would like to share DIY experiences along with some web marketing techniques and strategies to help the community of craftspeople, designer and all DIY lovers who want to become creative entrepreneurs, sell their products and services on the web.
One of the most important things for a creative entrepreneur is that your passion – if it drives it – will not be enough to sell your products or services. To succeed in developing your business, it therefore seems essential to have two qualities. His passion for his profession and the humility to open up to his community, his prospects, his clients: listening to them, exchanging with them, presenting their ideas to them… it is not always easy, because it makes them vulnerable. Developing your business also means opening up to areas that you are not always interested in.
Aycoo aims to reduce these areas as much as possible and thus freeing up time for the entrepreneur to focus on his passion. The Aycoo team will share their experiences on this blog to help you in your business. But also, by sharing values that are important to us such as recovering waste or recycling an object to make an original product.
At Aycoo, we believe in everyone’s potential. That’s why we set the app up as a collaborative sales platform that brings together designers and makers.
Furthermore, we also want to do things differently. We have noticed that in general, expertise, know-how and trade secret are well-kept treasures in many factories nowadays. Aycoo’s greatest challenge is to reverse this trend by sharing our knowledge with you to move forward together. This blog is therefore part of this challenging initiative.
