The idea

When was the last time you asked your friends what outfit suited you better? Do you remember that feeling of making decisions without really knowing why?

Just imagine how awesome would it feel to decide knowing you are right from the beginning. Knowing the people you care about will agree with you.

Last month I came across a situation like that. I needed to decide what length of beard would suit me better, but I had no idea. This is how I ended up asking a bunch of friends and used the power of data and statistics to let them decide – and the results were just amazing. Within two hours of executing the results I obtained, a number of girls from my dorm told me how much better was I looking. I am never going back.

And so, I created Decidr. Opine or get opined, from your friends or from people all over the world, no matter the nature of your question. What outfit suits me better? Where should we eat today? Beard or without beard? Just ask Decidr, and within seconds you will be using the power of statistics and cutting-edge data science technologies to get accurate figures and predictions that will empower you to take the right decisions, no room for doubts allowed.

With the power of data in the palm of your hand you will feel more sure than ever when the time for taking decisions arrives. Ask the world and let the world ask you – you will never decide alone again.

The growth hacker

Social media expert

He has experience as analyst for one of biggest social networks in the world (which we don't want to name yet, along with his name, because we are unsure that would break an NDA). His personal Twitter account, with +100k followers taught him how social networks work and what knobs to twist to get attention and gain momentum. As an entrepreneur, he has founded two companies, the first one at age 17, turning out profitable enough to sustain him for a couple of years. He ended up closing them to dive into new, exciting professional adventures.
