No matter how creative your mind, from a subjective perspective it can be hard to tell if your conception is also appealing to others. So Romanian ViewFlux came up with an idea for collaborative web development. The startup aims to help designers share opinions and capture feedback on their work for a better and more impressive online presence. Find out more about the team of musicians, mountaineers and serial entrepreneurs in this week’s Startup Pick.

design Web Development Romanian startup

Our one-line pitch is...
Better designs through collaboration.

Introduce your team, and tell us one interesting thing about each member. We are...
The projects sprung out of a web design & dev shop called 5Tailors. All founders have worked together for many years before taking the product route.

Andrie Gadoiu is the product lead and designer behind ViewFlux, he's also an amateur musician.

Alex Drimbe is the CTO, he keeps the engines running, avid mountaineer.

Jan Lukacs is handling marketing and business development, he's a serial-entrepreneur having started over five online businesses.

We received our initial capital through...
We're bootstrapping the business.

The real pain about starting a business in Romania is...
In Romania (as in most of Europe) it's pretty hard to get access to investment on a similar scale to the US, which can be tough in many cases since we're targeting users globally.

The person that inspires us is...
Bill Gates for his incredible, philanthropic work that doesn't get the awareness it should.

The one app/service that we couldn’t live without is...
Gmail. Many think email is over-rated it's still the bloodline of many businesses and the most basic project management tool.

The one thing we would save from our burning office is...
Our huge pile of cash :)

The worst piece of advice we ever got was...
no one will ever use that

The one thing that will make us quit is...
we're not quitters, we're doers.

Our inside joke is...
bye bye horse - a literal translation of a Romanian saying.

You might not believe it, but we...
mostly use PCs in the office, though a couple of Macs are around.

We'll call ourselves successful when...
we're the standard for design collaboration and feedback.
