About Crystal

My name is Crystal Yong, I am Software Developer and Aspiring Entrepreneur. I have done web/mobile development and have worked for clients and employers in diverse industries.

For the last year, I've prototyped a Crowdfunding app on native Android. I am hoping to create a crowdfunding platform. I also joined an incubator called iBoost at Ryerson University. So far, I have spoken to Crowdfunding users via Kickstarter & Indiegogo and was able to get some feedback.

With the feedback I have now, I was able to create a solution. Right now, I am trying to find Product Market Fit and I want to determine whether the solution is viable or not.

I am looking for a new cofounder with outstanding marketing, sales, and talking skills. Someone who is comfortable with talking to potential customers, investors, and networking. Ideally, someone with startup experience, currently I am following the Lean Startup methodology. Basic coding experience is a plus, but not required.

I honestly don't value degrees, certifications, or good grades very much.. but it's still good to have. I believe common sense, continuous self-learning, creativity, motivation, and entrepreneurial mindedness is more important.

Programming is my expertise, so I will handle the technical aspect.

Let me know if you are interested! I am also here for networking too.
