Ep 12: How a Forbes Contributor and Custom Software Agency Founder Builds Sidekick AI to Compete with Calendly with Chris Ake
Meet Chris Ake, contributor to Forbes Magazine and Co-author of the book, Journey to Success: Millennial Edition. He’s been hustling since he was young and he’s a non technical founder who figured out how to get in the technical game without actually being a developer. His entrepreneurial journey was inspired by an article in Tech Crunch and to this day he still has it framed. He was one of the founders of Grand Apps (acquired), a mobile app development company but now he’s focused on Kyros, his digital agency for custom software and his other passion project, Sidekick AI. Sidekick AI is a direct competitor to Calendly that Chris and his co-founders created because he experienced problems first hand with the solutions out there for combining calendar events and emails. This software uses smart AI and syncs with both gmail & outlook to help schedule calendar events for you. Come join our episode as we talk Chris through his own personal journey and how he went from a mobile app company to creating his own software that was published in Appsumo!
