  • I made the cut.

    我過關了。

  • But I wasn't going anywhere.

    但是最後我哪裡都沒去。

  • It was a blessing in disguise,

    我認同。

  • The series of events that had got me to that point

    但是我知道這是我可以改變的事情。

  • This last year in the industry, we've seen a huge shift with the Me Too movement.

    去年在這行業,我們已經看到 Me Too 運動造成的重大改變。

  • The industry is built with gatekeepers holding all of the power

    這個產業是被擁有所有力量的守門人建造,

  • and selecting who they deem talented enough to advance to the next level.

    並且選擇他們認為較有才能的人來提升新的水平。

  • More often than not, it's easier to catch the attention of those people

    如果你是畢業於貴族學校,

  • if you have graduated from an expensive school.

    通常較容易被這些守門人注意到。

  • But even then, I have so many friends who are fresh out of art school,

    但即使如此,我有許多從藝術學校畢業的朋友們,

  • having trained for years and are still no closer to creating a career.

    受訓多年卻依然無法創業。

  • Now, I'm not claiming that with Daisy I can make everybody a star,

    現在,我不能說 Daisy 可以讓每個人都成為明星,

  • but I do believe

    但我相信,

  • that I was free to invest wherever I liked.

    投資到我們創辦的公司。

  • Dom had a series of businesses from the age of 16,

    Dom 從 16 歲開始就做一連串的生意,

  • which meant he was also left with a pot of cash.

    也就是說他還存一些資金。

  • We threw our money together 50-50, and we built a team.

    我們個別投資一半,成為一個團隊。

  • Now, Lady Gaga has repeatedly said

    Lady Gaga 曾不斷地說過,

  • that there could be a room of 100 people, and 99 don't believe in you,

    100 個人之中就算有 99 個人不相信你,

  • but it just takes that one person to believe in you,

  • Well, now we have a team of six.

    我們的團隊有六個人,

  • Over the next 16 months, we built our MVP.

    在公司一開始營運的 16 個月,我們建造了最小價值的產品。

  • Now, if you're wondering what an MVP is,

    你可能會疑惑什麼是 MVP?

  • I only found out what it is about six months ago.

    我是在六個月前才懂這個詞的。

  • And from what I can gather, it's a product which proves as a problem worth solving

    據我所知,這是個產物,

  • with the minimum team effort.

    只需用最小的團隊合作就可以解決的問題。

  • So basically from my point of view, you're marketing something

    因此從我的角度來看,就是你在銷售某樣產品,

  • which you know is going to be good one day,

    你知道這個有一天會很熱賣,

  • but is a little bit bad right now.

    但現在有點不好。

  • And for us, that was an iOS app.

    對我們來說,那就是 iOS 應用程式。

  • The six of us made an office in Dom's garden,

    我們在 Dom 的花園建了一個辦公室,

  • and on August 1, 2018, we released our version one.

    在 2018 年 8 月 1 日,我們發行了第一個版本的應用程式。

  • We had over 30,000 downloads in the first 24 hours

    在發行後的 24 小時內,就有超過三萬的點擊下載,

  • and over 30,000 comments

    還有超過三萬個留言,

  • asking when the Android version was going to be coming.

    詢問什麼時候會出 Android 版本。

  • Despite our app being imperfect, buggy and literally built by one man alone,

    儘管我們的應用程式還不夠完善、有缺陷,而且只由一個人建立,

  • this was exactly what we needed for people to invest.

    但這就是人們投資所需要的。

  • We learned a lot from our angry users and our scary investors.

  • From then till now, we've been building version two,

    從那時到現在,我們在建造第二版,

  • which we will be launching in April.

    這會在四月開始發行。

  • Within the industry,

    在行業中,

  • there is a common phrase which I think we're all pretty familiar with.

    有一個我們都熟悉且常用的一句話:

  • And that is, "It's not what you know, it's who you know."

    「關鍵不在於你知道什麼,而是你認識誰。」

  • And with Daisy, I hope to give that power back to the creator.

    我希望透過 Daisy 將這個力量還給創作者。
