And one of the fascinating things to me about his company is that it was a dating company. The first will help you organize your books properly–not help you, they’ll do it for you. The second one will actually get you the best developer or designer you’ve ever had. You end up with this big windfall and you get to go do it again and again and again. You really need to know a lot of the [inaudible ] the sport players if you want to succeed. In France, LBO [inaudible ], people didn’t know that in 2004, 2003. I saw that it could be the same, but only for short-time rents. You were like 22 years old when you were working for the LBO firm. So, because the service was free at this time, they keep getting back to the website, even if it was not perfect. Let me continue because you did overcome some of the challenges we’re talking about here and others and some of the challenges Andrew Chen brought up in his blog post. I said, “Let’s just go see this and introduce it to my kid.” So I go in and I look at it. So I get the joystick back from him and I shoot another alien and I get ten points, then ten points.
He’s got this long blog post, but I’ll sum up some of the points. Dating sites, you match somebody and of course, they’re going to leave because they’re in a relationship. Every week, every month, I was getting to my friend and saying, “Okay, I have this new idea.” At the end of the day, they say, “Forget it, we know that you won’t have the courage to quit your job to create your company. : By the way, did you quit the job when you had this idea, when your friend finally told you, “Do this or don’t, but don’t keep talking about it.” Did you at that point say, “I’m quitting the job at the LBO firm? As we walked down the street, I saw one of these hipster movie theaters that had a game called Space Invaders. So this experience that I brought for him is now all about me for only one reason, Ludovic–because of the freaking points, because every time I shot one of those aliens, I got another 10 points or another 50 points if they were up higher. Points are very, very captivating in games and very captivating in life.
Today he’s working on an app called Shapr, which I have access to right here. So it was very difficult for us to find a very nice apartment with my friends. I don’t understand why more French people don’t quit and go start companies. It’s time to go and get somebody to build this for you. Who did you go find to create the first version of the software for you? Some of my friends, they were laughing at me when I told them I wanted to create a website because they told me I even don’t know how to have internet in my apartment. I think even at that point, I’m pretty sure you could have just bought or licensed someone else’s software and said, “I’m just going to take software that already exists. We hired 70 people who were walking on the streets of Paris and said, “Okay, Attractive World is a new very selective website and we are selecting the first 1,000 founder members.” So, we made the launch offline and it created a lot of buzz. So we select them and we were checking our complete profile because we wanted people involved in the community. Afterwards when we launched the website, when we opened the website, it was the community which selected the new members. Afterwards, from what I understand, after this launch, if someone new wanted to apply to be a part of the network, they ask to be included and then other members have to accept them and only when they’re accepted by other members can they then have opportunities to date people. But people were more patient because it was not like now.
