A SaaS tool to support first-time founders build their first company.
I'm Albert, a design technologist.
I'm currently advising early-stage startups on their design strategy through Dorm Room Fund. Previously, my work has mostly revolved around supporting first-time founders with tools such as VCWiz and FounderKit.
On the side, I do freelance work for brands including Royal Carribbean, Alpha Bridge Ventures, and LimeBike.
My core design focuses are in digital product design with an emphasis on product ideation, user experience (UX), and sprint frameworks.
Sector-wise, I'm deep into fashion, wellness, and AR/VR
FounderKit was a tool created by the Super team, a 4-person startup studio led by YC founders Ryan Mickle and Ian Hunter, to support first-time founders as they are building their first companies. We sourced tool recommendations and reviews from expereinced founders so that young founders can quickly discover the best tool to use. You can try it out !
I joined the team post-MVP and worked to redesign the product to handle v2 features while concurrently developing the community. The product is currently on hiatus.
Timeline: 8 months | Tools: Sketch, Illustrator, Photoshop
The product was considered unmonetizable mid-redesign and efforts to work on it was shelved in favor of other, higher potential, ventures. I left the team soon after to pursue other ventures.
