We’re two French guys, Greg and Louis, currently working on our startup focusing on privacy and simplicity: an app that gives you your own personal private cloud at home in just a few seconds. We both come from international backgrounds, mainly influenced by France, England, and Spain. We met in Madrid. At the time Greg had already started working on Duple on his own (euphemism to mean that the guy had been hiding in a cave building the technology). Greg is an ex-professional hacker who worked for governments on classified projects. He started in front of a computer when he was 3. I, Louis, joined him on the project. And what a journey it’s been so far. From the struggles of creating the company, the YCombinator episode, going to San Francisco, changing cities constantly, and meeting all sorts of people helping us advance in our journey.
We’re bootstrapping, meaning we’re funding the project ourselves, with our own money (a mix of our savings and part-time jobs). The reason being that we want to keep as much autonomy as possible, have full control over our startup and over which directions we take. The focus will always be on providing a full private experience to you.
That, we promise.
