Jojo Hedaya is the proud owner of a budding business, Unroll.Me. He joined hands with Josh Rosenwald, and together they founded Unroll.Me. It is an app that takes care of junk files, spams, and other unnecessary emails by cleaning them. The app comes with an additional feature, The Rollup that assembles a user’s favorite subscriptions into one email that can be read at a scheduled time. It is easy to use and understand and has therefore many clients.
Contrary to other startups that have a hard time finding their footing, Unroll.Me took off pretty quickly and in its first two years it hard over a million users. Jojo Hedaya and Rosenwald consider themselves lucky for this, but it can be seen that their passion and hard work is what brought their success. Josh and Hedaya met at Brooklyn College where they were studying but had to drop out to focus solely on Unroll.Me. Jojo, however, considers education essential and went back to complete his degree. He is married and has a son together with his wife.
When asked about the secrets to his success, JojoHedaya gave a few tips. These include;
- Work with the right people- the key to a successful organization is employees that are eager to learn new things and are passionate about their work. They should also be self-driven. When starting at Unroll.Me, Jojo hired an engineer who was still studying but had the motivation of learning. He is now a top producer at the company.
- Have the right skills and knowledge– starting a business without any prior knowledge is a sure guarantee of failure. One should, therefore, look into all aspects before venturing out.
- Make a product that is simple to use- the reason behind the failure of most startups is the complication of using their products. JojoHedaya ensured that Unroll.Me was easy to figure out, therefore, winning many clients over.
- Take a minimum amount of time to launch a product- most entrepreneurs waste a lot of money and resources on a project that eventually fails when started. He, therefore, encourages entrepreneurs to minimize the use of funds to avoid major loses.
