Startup Projects

Hi I'm Craig

I’m going to follow in the footsteps of many great indie makers, and build a number of startup projects, one per month, until I find one that gains traction and can be monetized to replace my current income. I currently have 8 startup ideas (and counting) in mind to build. I’m going to build each startup from scratch, track my progress, and screencast my code. I will share my thoughts, processes, experiences, failures, successes (hopefully), and be completely transparent throughout this entire process. Join me along this solo maker journey and maybe along the way get inspired to build your own startup.

European Trip Planner

Published: January 1, 2020

Idea:

An online gathering place for backpackers, students, and families traveling to Europe to share trip ideas, download trip itineraries, book local tours, trains, accommodations, airfare, connect with other travelers, budget for their trips, store and share their trip details, and a lot more.

This is the grand-daddy of my ideas – the largest and the one closest to my heart. This is the project I should have focused on 20 years ago and should be the one that is providing me my financial freedom now. Maybe I should solely focus on this and not any of the others, but since I have never completed this project, I am going to follow the advice of successful makers, and build out an MVP version of this with the expectation that i may have to move on to something else if it does not gain traction.

Gift Wish List

Published: January 6, 2020

Idea:

Invite friends and family to create gift wishlists so that you (and other friends and family) can reduce stress around holidays/birthdays and shop for gifts off the lists. List creators can not see what (if anything) has been purchased from the list. Invited group members that are NOT the list creator CAN see what items others have purchased from the list so that they do not also purchase this gift.

Gamification on who predicts match outcomes more accurately, who gets more upvotes for match and team write-ups, etc.

Web Development Tutorials

Idea:

  • Web Development Tutorials: Build out articles and video tutorials to help non-technical founders quickly gain the technical knowledge to build their startups without needing a technical founder.
  • Include a Social element where a community of users can stay accountable to groups and each other on their journey to be better developers.
  • Implement a ‘mentor’ function where users can ask questions of specific community members designated as ‘Mentors’ and get 1-on-1 feedback, rewarding mentors with ‘knowledge points’ in the process.
