How I'm building 12 startups in 12 months

April 2020
Antigua, Guatemala

I’ve tasted the Pieter Levels coolaid and I want in. I want to build startups. I also happen to be stranded in Guatemala right now thanks to the pandemic 😷 Why not be productive?

So my new project is to build 12 startups in 12 months just like Pieter did. I will build them with the honest intent to create something valuable and profitable - but I expect most of them to fail.

I see two outcomes:

  1. They all die horrible deaths but I learn a lot, meet like-minded people, and expand my portfolio.
  2. Some happen to succeed! I achieve all of the above and actually make some money out of it.

A win-win no? Let’s see what happens.

My first project will be Icing Addict - a mobile game which capitalises on those popular icing gifs I’ve seen recently.

I plan to post updates during creation and after release. So let’s do this! Follow me here and let’s see how this pans out.

As for the current situation I’m currently bunkered down in Guatemala for the foreseeable future. I was under house quarantine (with police patrols!) for a couple weeks but am now somewhat free again. Returning home is not an option at this point.

It’s not all bad though. The weather’s great, I have lots to work on, and as you can see in the photo above - the views ain’t bad either 👌

Catch you next time!

Month 5 update

So last month I created Panda Snap which started off well. I really enjoyed making it so decided to continue!

In light of that my 12 start-up journey changed a little. Instead of creating a new product each, I would launch something related to my start-ups.

Same workload, similar concept, please don’t be mad.

How should I rename it? Tweet me!
