About Jenny

Hi! My Name is Jenny and I'm a former PR / marketing executive and a self-taught UI/UX designer turned Start-Up Founder. I'm currently looking for a technical co-founder to join me at my company, Wrangler Connect, Inc.

I'm on a mission to create the ultimate mobile networking tool that will help people connect more authentically, nurture new relationships and ultimately build valuable and powerful networks.

To learn more, feel free to message me and we can chat.

I'm interested in co-founders who are located in NYC or founders willing to locate to NYC.

As a non technical founder, I feel it's important to share a bit about my journey thus far. I came up with my idea just about a year and 1/2 ago. At the time, I had no experience building software. For most people, this would have been a good reason to forget the idea and move on with life. But not for me ...

I did everything I could to figure out how I could at least get a simple "MVP" version of my idea in the App Store. I bootstrapped my way across the finish line of my first "milestone."

Why? Because I wanted to eventually find an awesome technical partner and I wanted to prove to them that I was serious, scrappy, and not afraid to take risks! I knew that one day, I'd have to share the vision with someone else, and as someone who believes actions speak louder than words, I wanted my progress to scream "I'm committed!"

Today, I have the first version of my app available on the Apple App Store. I'm testing and updating the app based on user feedback and I plan to push for early traction in the coming weeks.

However, it's time to find a partner to come on this crazy ride with me. And that's why I'm here on CoFounders Lab :)

Lets chat !
