Tell us about Boutir.STORE. 

Boutir.STORE is a mobile commerce platform dedicated to sellers who want to setup an online store for their business and break free from expensive transaction costs & listing fees of major marketplaces. With a 3-minute setup time, we are probably the fastest online store builder in the market. We make selling online as simple as it should be.

When did you get the idea to start working towards the mobile commerce platform, Boutir.STORE?

In October 2013, Boutir.STORE joined AngelHack HK and won the Grand Prize Award. This 24-hour hackathon event was pivotal for us. We formed the team, designed the User Interface (UI), and simultaneously built the mobile app, the store website and the backend on Google App Engine. Furthermore, we pitched and presented the demo for our startup idea.

How has the journey been so far? Share a couple of unique learnings over the time you worked on Boutir.STORE.

If a startup is a journey of 100 steps, the first step is the most difficult. Having said that, every step that follows is equally crucial. Our journey with this mobile commerce platform has taught us the need to evolve rapidly from an idea to a prototype and subsequently to a product. So far, we have experienced promising traction for Boutir.STORE, and our next step would involve gearing up for a Pre-Series A round of funding followed by solid investor relationships.
