3 questions to the startup “You want you come”
Hello Bilal, can you present “You want you come”?
We live in a society that pushes consumption and overbids. Renewing your furniture, equipment or wardrobe means getting rid of old things.
This is where we come in by offering to give before throwing away to reuse instead of wasting!
TuVeuxTuViens is a website that connects a person who donates a property with another who would like to recover it. It’s very easy to use and completely free for both parties.
We hope to improve our way of consuming by gaining all of them:
- Donors no longer tire of throwing away their possessions;
- The people who collect the object save precious money;
- And communities reduce collections during bulky items.
How did the idea for this project come about?
We have had this idea with my brother for several years!
When we were younger, our parents were the kind of people who stored their old things in their cellar. Over the years, no object has emerged intact. Finally after having transported the objects to the cellar, we had to put them on the street to throw them away.
Naturally, we wondered why to store, then throw away; rather than giving and without getting tired!
Today, thanks to our entrepreneurial experiences, we have all the cards in hand to create the tool that would stop this waste of time and manufactured object.
What are the news / news from your startup in the coming months?
We are very close to our users and attach great importance to their requests. Every day our application is improving and many major new products will see the light of day in 2016. We will in particular enrich the experience of our donors thanks to a dynamic dashboard. They will choose more easily to whom they wish to give their objects, thanks to different practical information!
Another technical aspect concerns the development of mobile applications which will start at the end of February!
As with any self-respecting start-up, the second axis of our development concerns our international deployment. Now that the demand has been confirmed thanks to French users, we are targeting more than ten carefully chosen capitals to extend this new way of consuming. This requires translation, understanding of local cultures and the engagement of local ambassadors alongside us as is the case in England.
A word for the end
TuVeuxTuViens is a completely free platform which aims to provide practical assistance. With our skills and with time, we have the opportunity to improve our society and we will do everything to achieve it!
Obviously many people ask us what we gain and how do we finance our development and our communication?
So I take this opportunity to thank all the people who support us and get involved in TuVeuxTuViens! I am thinking in particular of the Ambassadors, it is thanks to them that we are able to expand so quickly and federate a community around our common values.
In addition to the Ambassadors, the previous companies that we created with my associates provide funding for servers and administrative procedures in particular.
