Company History

Q: How did you get started on Brainverse Technologies Ltd?

I started Brainverse when in my second year in college, driven by the necessity to finance myself at school. Like every other startup, I started solo. My first gigs were about designing blogs and simple websites for my friends and some businesses. I must admit that the starting point was lousy, fuzzy, and uncalculated. I had no clear vision of what I wanted the company to be, beyond adding more money in my pocket. I could afford to be off duty when I wanted, and hey, I was a student, living in his own terms.

Beginning of finding a purpose - Brainverse Recess

In early 2014, I started on a project that sprouted from my urge to develop a product for young people, especially those on campus. With 2 other friends, we started a social networking site - VibeCampo, our own version of Facebook that would address the needs of young people and help them nurture their talents. We delved into the depths of learning everything we needed to make this a success. I truly admit that running such a venture was not easy, without a constant stream of funding, since we had no idea how to implement a proper revenue model.

Before I knew it, I had it all to myself, staggering and fumbling to make it work. I started building a small team, and we settled only for this vision for 4.5 years straight, while we grew internally but very slowly. With resilience, aggression, and hard work – I tried my best to keep it going, with a small team of campus ambassadors until the project reached it’s retirement in 2018, with over 20,000 users. It was a hard thing to do! I had lost focus on Brainverse and the only consolation was that I would get a chance to focus on it again.

Building the company from scratch

In 2018, with all the lessons I had learned from VibeCampo, I decided to revive Brainverse Technologies strongly. I started building a team that would take it to the next level. I was out of campus and I knew I had to be very objective with every step I made. This started off by incorporating the company, rebuilding it’s a website, reconnecting with old clients, and hiring the right people for the job. Two years down the line, we have grown into a family of amazing people working together to achieve one goal.
