I met a collaborator on Shapr in three days!

Mar 21, 2017 · 2 min read

Three years ago, Sarah Toyo was a successful consultant trying to start her own business. Now, she is about to launch a professional video sharing app, MyIntro, after finding a web developer on Shapr.

When Sarah started the process, she assumed that she could just hire any developer with a certain baseline skill set, and he or she would be able to build the app the way she wanted. But as it turned out, it was much more complicated than that. She didn’t just need a developer; she needed someone who shared her unique vision. And she wasn’t finding it through the usual means.

“I found that it was much harder to find good talent than I expected,” Sarah told us. “Building the app took much longer than I thought — three years — and it still wasn’t really what I wanted.”

Then, she heard about the Shapr app from an article in Entrepreneur, and joined as a last-ditch effort to find a developer who truly understood her concept. And in only three days on the app, she met fellow user Viraj Shah, a software engineer also based in Atlanta. Sarah and Viraj immediately clicked, and he built the app exactly the way she wanted.

“This app is a game-changer!” Sarah says. “I found someone to collaborate with in literally three days. I haven’t been able to find someone of this caliber to collaborate with in three years!”

Now, Sarah is going full steam ahead in launching her startup, and Viraj will finish the app in time for its official launch on April 14. Soon, the company will start looking for investors, and Sarah will likely use Shapr for that as well.

So what are you waiting for? Join Shapr, and you can make a career-changing connection in just a few days!
