Name: Patrick Sieber
What are you building, and who benefits most from it?
Our solution, RebeccAi, is an AI-powered idea development and evaluation platform. It provides accurate insights into the potential of business ideas and helps entrepreneurs refine them quickly and intelligently. From business ideas to creative projects, RebeccAi enables entrepreneurs to innovate faster and smarter.
What is one of your startup’s most impressive accomplishments?
We are very proud of the fact that we can create an in-depth report on business and startup ideas within seconds. Usually, it does not take longer than 20 seconds to get a report on market analysis, competitor analysis, sustainability issues, and more.
What has been the biggest challenge so far, and how did you overcome it?
It’s been getting the idea out there, and we are still trying to find the best ways to spread the word. One of the biggest challenges we faced was fine-tuning the algorithms and models used in RebeccAi to ensure accurate and reliable business idea evaluations. This required extensive data analysis, testing, and continuous refinement. Through dedicated research and development efforts, as well as incorporating user and expert feedback, we were able to enhance the accuracy and effectiveness of our platform.

What marketing strategies have worked for you?
Our marketing strategies have primarily focused on digital channels, including targeted online advertising, content marketing, and social media engagement. We have found that creating informative and engaging content related to business idea validation and leveraging SEO techniques has been effective in attracting organic traffic to our website. Additionally, partnering with industry influencers and participating in relevant online communities has helped us reach our target audience and generate interest in RebeccAi.
Can you share any financial data about your startup?
As a growing company, we are experiencing a steady increase in the number of users. We have also received funding from one source to support our product development and expansion efforts. Now we are at around 1,500 users after four weeks. (Reported on July 14, 2023.)
What has been your biggest business failure to date? What did you learn from it?
As in any entrepreneurial journey, we have faced failures along the way. One notable failure was the initial launch, where we wasted so much potential. This experience taught us the importance of launch day and the significance of understanding traffic pumps in the beginning.
What’s the best specific piece of advice you have for other entrepreneurs?
The best piece of advice we can offer to other entrepreneurs is to stay focused, adaptable, and persistent. Building a successful business takes time and requires continuous learning and evolution. Embrace challenges as opportunities for growth, surround yourself with a supportive team, and always stay connected with your customers to ensure your offerings meet their needs. Remember to celebrate small victories along the way and maintain a positive mindset to navigate the inevitable ups and downs of entrepreneurship.
