Meet VUNK TOP 7 team: Tippy 

In an alphabetical order get to know #GetVunked2015 team No. Seven - Tippy & team lead Marek Fraczyk. They are about to change the world of tipping & giving feedback for service you get in a bar, pub or restaurant - so no more awkward feeling when you realize the service has been superb but you cannot show it. Plus team motto - we just do it.

What entrepreneurs do you admire and why? 

Sir Richard Branson and Elon Musk are just few of the many who prove that if there is a problem which has not been solved yet, then it’s only because nobody has tried hard enough.

I must not forget to mention Martin Mc Gloin for his commitment to what he does and the ability to inspire others.

Tell about your team dynamics. 

It gives me real pleasure to see that things get done and all the team members show initiative when dealing with their fields and most importantly, they are not afraid to take responsibility for their actions.

In a startup there is no room for “what would happen, if..”. You need doers, people who act rather than talk. And that’s exactly how we are at Tippy - we just do it!

What does success look like for your company? 

The moment we enable everyone to personally express their gratitude for the service they receive, regardless of place or time, is the moment when we can say we have succeeded.


What will your market look like in five years as a result of using your product or service?

Tippy challenges the current situation of p2p micropayments and shows the demand for and potential of having easy and seamless ways of transferring money between individuals.

The ability to transfer money instantly, with very low to no transaction costs, also across borders, will be a commodity.

Starting up from inside a corporate

In addition to the two teams participating in the VUNK Accelerator programme today, quite a few teams who did not manage to set up their team during the hackathon weekend in August have independently developing their idea future.

For example Career3, a team from Eesti Telekom, was not able to find developers at a right time, but the energy of the authors of the idea has not run out – quite the opposite.

We caught up with Paul Are and Endo Viires to hear their story and see where are they heading.
