Tell us about OneSite – the product and how you got the idea to create it.
OneSite is a platform that allows anyone to create a website for free. We empower beginners and advanced developers to create and put online their own site in the best way possible. We provide the industry’s best Website Builder for those who want to create their site and don’t know how to do so. In addition, we let these people Learn Code through our platform and even code their site if they want! Of course, all of these for free. As for developers, we provide them with the industry’s best Free Hosting so that they can code their own site straight away! I had been involved in the internet and websites industry since the age of 14. Now, at the age of 19, I believed that I was ready to start my own entrepreneurial adventure and that led to OneSite.
How big is your team? Tell us what they do, when not at work!
We’re 4 people at OneSite. Mike McCoy is the CTO and he is in charge of making sure all technical aspects are in order. Delfin Serrano is in charge of the customer support and helps Mike when required. Finally, Tykari White is in charge of the Abuse Department. I am the Founder and CEO of OneSite. I manage OneSite on the go while travelling and being involved in all the other stuff that I love doing.
Our team is young and dynamic, and we’re ready to keep on innovating to make sure we rule the web!
Is this your first business? If not, tell us about your entrepreneurial journey thus far.
In the past, I have worked on different small projects in the industry with the main aim of learning. I also worked for some multinationals in the industry, but OneSite is his my first proper startup.
How did you get the seed fund to start off?
OneSite began as a self-funded venture by me. We are now on Series A and expecting to close it in the second quarter of 2017 with a company valuation of €500.000.
What are your biggest challenges?
Our biggest challenge is to ensure we continue to be competitive and innovative. The industry that OneSite is part of is stable and market players are already settled. We are trying to make a place for ourselves in this market through innovation and marketing!
