We talked to Bilal SEFSAF on monetizing your knowledge and skills using Peecco platform.
First of all, how are you and your family doing in these COVID-19 times?
Bilal SEFSAF: Everyone is safe and sound, thank God.
Tell us about you, your career, how you founded Peecco.
Bilal SEFSAF: I kicked my career in 2009 as a Designer supporting businesses building meaningful products until 2020. My devotion to making a change drove me to teach more than a thousand students and professionals about technology, design, and their impact on enhancing people’s lives.
In early 2020, my friend Amine Smida and I decided to combine our experience in two-sided markets, education and building scalable products to co-found Peecco.
How does Peecco innovate?
Bilal SEFSAF: We allow content creators to make money by offering on-demand teaching and advisory services. On the other hand, learners have the chance to acquire personalized knowledge directly from the people they follow.
How the coronavirus pandemic affects your business, and how are you coping?
Bilal SEFSAF: Fortunately, our service hasn’t been really affected, but due to the lack of e-payment in our target market, people were struggling to make a purchase. Thus, we had to create new payment methods that are making it easy for people to pay.
Did you have to make difficult choices, and what are the lessons learned?
Bilal SEFSAF: So far, the most important lesson we have learned, as a startup founder, you have to do thing things that don’t scale and focus on landing then expanding.
How do you deal with stress and anxiety?
Bilal SEFSAF: I play Legos with my son or explore new fields.
Who are your competitors? And how do you plan to stay in the game?
Bilal SEFSAF: Our indirect competitors are mostly e-learning platforms, and our plan to stay in the game is to convert them as partners using our innovative concept.
Your final thoughts?
Bilal SEFSAF: We are on a mission to shortcut people’s success path by democratizing access to the right person at the right time.
