HeyEveryone founders talk about SaaS, AI, investing, work and life balance and startup life

Today our guests are Nikita and Tina Blanc, entrepreneurs and partners in business and in life. We will talk about some of the startups they founded, their life journey, how their successful company was killed by Apple, their new venture, relocating a team on a short notice and much more.

Short overview

We talk about Challenge app, a project Tina and Nikita built and grew to a successful business over years, that was eventually shut by Apple. We go over the challenges of being partners in life and business and balancing life/work relationships. We talk about their new project — HeyEveryone, how the idea for it was born, how they came up with the name and how it can help entrepreneurs prepare to and raise funds, as well as update their investors afterwards. We touch on how they handled the challenge of moving and keeping their business together on a short notice.

What’s in a name? We at MarkUpgrade believe that everything starts with a name. Names are introductions, names embody feelings and purpose, names give ideas and create vision. With Names With Stories we collect the unique stories behind brand names.
