Our Story

The Dream of Your dChi

The Situation

A typical scene for many people; we sit with our devices and try to figure out how to get a job, find a place to live, make family plans, or in our case, what to do after our post-grad study. Of course, at least a couple of brightly lit screens are open; our phones, laptops and maybe a tablet. We post, research, and reach out, but then some big questions begin to pop into our minds.

Why is it so hard to find a job that fits? Does nobody get us? Why do we have all these connection to all these people? Who are they? Can they help? Is there someone they know who can? Why are we getting ads about things we don’t want or we’ve already bought? Why are we being bombarded with all this information we don’t need? Why is it overwhelming, boring and frustrating trying to use technology that is meant to make life easier?

Then One Night

Everything Changed

Dec 5, 2018 to be precise, the Your dChi dream was conceived. We saw ourselves working, having fun and connecting but with a new vision that made those connections ‘real’ and easier to make. In the near future, we were doing things in a different way; the internet came alive for us. All our data was extracted from all the locations in the world where it existed: the servers, the devices, the USBs etc. They all just started flying out of those locations from around the world and landed in our mobile phones, connected with a VR headset. Everything changed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What we began to think about was

The Power of Our Data

Overlaid in the real world, and now, that data was working for us; doing all the leg work of our digital life. Our devices knew us and knew what we are interested in (and crucially, what we were not!) and could even help find things we could become. So now, all the connections and data points became virtualized, interactive and gamified. We felt like it was grand theft auto, the sims, Amazon, and LinkedIn, but seen through our perspective only.

So, we got together with a

Drive to change the world.

Why can’t our data help us with our lives and how can we make that happen? We researched the idea and came up with a possible business model. Key at this stage was expertise; it’s great to have great dreams, but we needed people with the same hearts and values to make them a reality. In this fact, we were lucky. Like magic people with the required expertise and same hearts were part of our Executive MBA programme. We sat together in one small apartment and discussed the idea of giving the power of the data back in a transparent way, and this resonated with us all.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Everyone had the right to challenge every aspect of the idea as it grew into a business plan. We researched more and challenged more, and Your dChi only became more real. The positive vibes, energy, or whatever you want to call it, drew in others. We were lucky to find additional team members with the same values and mindset. Jan 5, 2019, Your dChi was registered and the ball moved forward into a possible reality.
