Runner Interview

Dima Pimakhov

Founder, GoSolo

It's a business banking app for traders.

Can you give a brief introduction about yourself?
My name is Dima short for Dmytro. I'm a Ukrainian founder in the UK.
What inspired you to become entrepreneur?
I've been in an entrepreneur for a very long time. More than 10 years. I rose through the ranks all the way to partner and then separated away and started my own thing.
Can you describe your startup in a single sentence?
It's a business banking app for traders.
How did your business idea come about?
I know quite a lot about business and banking being an entrepreneur myself, but also spent last 15 years in digital banking, and I saw a niche where ordinary traders who are just starting that business and are clueless about the organisational hurdles can be solved by a banking app, but none was offering it.
What's the most unique aspect of your solution or business model?
We have tap to pay in the app, so basically you can accept card payments in the app without a card machine.
What's the most challenging aspect of building your business?
Money and these days managing a remote team.
What's the most valuable lesson you've learnt as a founder?
When things are bad, they can get worse. But it can also get better.
What's the next big milestone for your business?
A big milestone for my business is becoming profitable.
What advice would you have an inspiring on entrepreneur?
It's just it's a cliche but we do it not because it's easy but because we thought it's easy.
Any ideas on how to improve Seed Run?
Maybe move it a little bit later. Otherwise it is great as is.
