This week, Memlin will be taking over our Instagram account. We took the opportunity to ask co-founder Christian Ramel some questions about the company and the team.
Can you tell me a bit about Memlin, who are you, who’s working in the team?
Memlin is a platform for corporate event planning that turns anyone in the company into a professional event planner and puts event administration on autopilot. You can manage trainings, courses, events and seminars without excel and personal email addresses as senders.
We are 9 people working with the service; Christian Ramel, CEO, Gustav Olsson, COO, Eric Andersson, CFO, Jens Agerberg, CTO, Alexandra Wingstrand, Marketing manager, Damien Jaillot, Design and frontend, Anas KM, web development, Mickey Ngo, web development and Saurabh Naik, web development. Damien is located in France, Mickey in Vietnam and Anas and Saurabh in India.
How did you come up with the idea of Memlin? Had any of you run a company before?
It started out as a simple service for sending invitations, accepting signups and an app for fast check in of the participants with QR-codes. The name was Digiviter at first. Two years ago we decided to use the knowledge from that system and the feedback we got from early customers and build a new service from scratch, that better targets the need and newer technologies.
You are a part of Ideon Takeoff, for companies leaving the incubator. What does it mean for you to sit with other scaleup companies?
It’s a super dynamic environment and we have close collaborations with the other companies in the office. As we run very similar services and are basically in the same phase, we can use each others knowledge and get inspiration from each other.
What will you be showing us next week on Instagram?
We will show you a week in the early days of a growing SaaS company. We are still developing a lot, but are in the process of shifting focus to a more sales and market driven company.
