What is Attendible?
Attendible is a local social calendar that lets you discover amazing events and new things to do. It’s basically a new type of calendar that’s based on what’s happening in the city and in the community.

What’s your traction been like thus far?
Our user base has been doubling month to month and a good part of our events are starting to be submitted by the community. Most of our popular users have a 300+ followers on Attendible.

What do you know now that you wish you would have known when you started Attendible?
I would say that working in a startup is mostly like visiting a new city. You can’t do everything in one day. It will take time to cover all the places. Sometime, you’ll find yourself in bad alleys and you’ll learn to avoid them but with dedication, you’ll also end up discovering some good spots that you’ll be able to harvest and build upon.

What’s a hypothesis that you’ve had that has failed? And how did you respond?
We thought people are willing to collect events into collections like EDM parties in Seattle. While it was true, it’s only a small number of people who would do this. We’ve reverted into creating hashtags to help out with events discovery.

What’s your favorite startup in Seattle? (Besides your own!)
There are a lot of great companies in the SURF Incubator that are really pushing the boundaries. It’s hard to know all of them but we’ve had the chance to interact with two of them. I think Socedo is introducing a new and disruptive pattern of customer acquisitions and UBI is pushing the limits of user interfaces.

What’s your favorite thing about being an entrepreneur?
The learning and experiences you end up acquiring. Working on a startup is overcoming one bottleneck after the other and the amount of things you learn in the process is amazing. Creating value from scratch and services that benefits other people is also great.

What’s your favorite thing about being a startup in Seattle?
Seattle had a great influence on Attendible in terms of culture, underground music and content on the site. I’m almost sure Attendible would have been different or nonexistent if it weren’t in Seattle. The tech community, SURF, Red, House of Genius, Seattle Tech Meetup, etc… is also insanely great.

Seahawks, Sounders, Mariners or Huskies?
Sounders fan. I’ve also seen couple of Mariners and Seahawks games. Unfortunately, I still did not see any Husky game yet but I am really into college sports having graduated from the University of Florida. I’ll definitely need to check out a game on the campus.

If you were to take Attendible on a date, where would it want to go?
That’s definitely a question for Attendible! We’ll go watch a live concert in one of Seattle’s underground music spots. It’s hard to pick one though as all of them are great and are also our users.
