“The triv.io team is absolutely giddy to be part of the next WebFWD class. If I break down the motivation behind triv.io, I think you’ll see why.
First, build something truly huge. The bigger the vision, the more room it has for stakeholders to add their own personal touches and the more margin of error you’ll have during execution. Our vision is to drive down the cost of running ‘Web Scale’ infrastructure to the point where startups, academics and even hobbyists can build things at the scale of Amazon, Google, Facebook and Yahoo.
Second, give something back. When you’re building something big, you’re going to face big, big challenges. You need more reasons than money to face challenges of that scale. We know we wouldn’t be here today if we weren’t standing on the shoulders of all the giants in the open source community. Therefore we’re committed to supporting those building data sets for the public good, at little to no cost. We hope someone uses triv.io to find the cure for cancer.
Third, don’t do it alone. The biggest time wastes in our field today is managing servers, installing softwares, configuring clouds…or worse, waiting on a single individual to do this for us. We believe if we make it easy for individuals to share code and data with each other, a community will naturally develop. Common tasks will be abstracted away. We all will get to spend more time extracting useful insights out of our data and less time pushing bits around our networks.
That’s why we’re a perfect fit. That’s what motivates us! That is why we’re so excited to join the WebFWD class. They are committed to fostering the open web and developing innovation. It so perfectly meshes with our own commitments.
As second- and third-time founders, we wanted to build something truly motivating, something that makes us jump out of bed each morning and inspires us into the long hours of the night. Being accepted into the WebFWD program reaffirms that we’re on the right path.”
