295: Krepling: How Two Teens Co-Founded a Shopify Competitor

In 2019, two teenage brothers decided to build a Shopify competitor.

Neither of them knew how to code, but one had taken some coding courses.

After months they shipped a clunky product with an ugly user interface.

While the product was free, they still managed to attract users.

But as soon as they started charging, every user they had churned

Fast forward to today, Liam is now 21 and Travis is 18. They have:

• Kept improving and built a better product
• Grown their business to over 500 customers
• Raised a pre-seed round from Jason Calacanis's Launch accelerator

They still have a long way to go and a lot more work to do.

But I think they've accomplished a lot in the last couple of years.

• They're both still pretty young
• Didn't have tons of experience
• Didn't know how to code
• Live on a small island in the Mediterranean

But that hasn't stopped them.

They've turned their idea into a SaaS business.

With hundreds of paying customers.
