How Zweelie Started
Oct 3, 2023
Founder Alex's Journey from Coding Enthusiast to Tech Entrepreneur:
In 2010, while attending film school, our founder Alex discovered his enthusiasm for creating apps that could provide value to others. He took his first steps into the world of coding by trying his hand at developing an iPhone app. However, his initial attempt was met with skepticism from a programmer roommate who was formally studying programming. When Alex showed him his code, the programmer told him:
"Code looks horrible, you'll never make it in this industry."
Rather than being discouraged, Alex dedicated his nights to honing his coding skills. His hard work paid off within a year when he had two iPhone apps commissioned by two local radio stations. His next project was developing an app for a shopping mall, a challenge that he gladly accepted. The journey was challenging, but his love for coding kept him motivated and driven.
As his expertise in coding deepened, he observed a common problem among his colleagues and on freelancing platforms - professionals turning down work due to skill gaps. This realization led to the birth of an idea aimed at solving this widespread issue.
Hence, Zweelie was conceived. Zweelie is a platform designed to empower professionals to collaborate, share revenue, and bridge skill gaps that hinder project completion and professional growth. Through Zweelie, Alex has created an ecosystem that encourages continuous learning, collaboration, and financial growth among professionals.
The story of Alex is a powerful reminder to never let naysayers deter you from pursuing what you love. If Alex had listened to his roommate’s early criticism, he wouldn’t be where he is today, doing what he loves and making a significant impact in the professional world through Zweelie.
