Black Goat Media

Tudor started Black Goat Media in 2013. They detail the beginnings of their company in their Starter Story interview: [1]

Q: How did you get started on Black Goat Media?

Black Goat Media started as a side project that was meant to support a start-up idea we had. I was in my final year of study in Denmark when together with 3 close friends we decided to build a marketplace that connects car owners with auto repair shops in Romania. The whole idea was our return home project.

Most initial ideas are destined to fail. Small wins can move you forward to actually getting where you want.

The start-up was sucking a lot of resources so we decided to offer web development and marketing services for other businesses to support the growth.

At that point, our only expertise was the 2 years of marketing management education and 1.5 year BA in innovation and entrepreneurship. So, almost zero practical expertise.

Running the start-up, we managed to get a small round of investment (around $12,000) but after 3 years it was time to give up on the idea. We made quite a few mistakes along the way and the product did not perform at a level to sustain a team.

I was studying Innovation and Entrepreneurship for my BA top-up. The other 3 founders are not in Black Goat Media anymore. The investment came from a private investor that liked the idea and approached us directly.

The first reason for the startup not being successful was our lack of industry knowledge, then lack of proper direct sales knowledge. We had a good product, too complex in some areas. It was at that moment we knew Black Goat Media had to be our full-time focus. Patience and creativity always worked for us in moving forward.
