Tell us a few words about the founders and how the idea came
There are 3 founders in the KOOCAM team:
Micheal Waknin (31 years old) CEO.
Yael Waknin (31 years old) CMO.
Arava Glam (32 years old) CREATIVE & PR.
We were all from Israel and we met in the framework of joint work, which led to friendship and partnership.
Each of us has a different employment background, management, customer retention, advertising, promotion, marketing, and financial.
We are a team composed of everything that a startup requires, and that makes us a good team.
How did you get the idea to Koocam?
The idea came from the need we encountered at home, the family was looking for a way to enrich their knowledge in languages/ cooking / traveling tips etc.
What was important to them is to receive that information from the ordinary person that possess that knowledge or skill.
So, we started to think what we would like to learn from people like us around the world and what others might be interested in learning to enrich their knowledge.
We noticed that many people do not realize the personal knowledge potential and do not know how valuable it is.
Some of them have mind barrier and thinking “What can I teach”, “I do not know anything”, “I’m not a professional”, “They know better than me”.
We are here to change this perception and give equal opportunities for everyone to make a decent living by spreading their knowledge to the world.
We also know for certain is that knowledge is the only thing that everyone has, so why not profit from it literally, thus helping them improve their financial standing and give them a place to share their knowledge.
We were surprised to discover that what motivates people is the urge and the need to share and to get acknowledged.
So, think that with all that they are getting paid for it – it’s the icing on the cake!
