Talk to experts to solve your problems so that you can achieve what you want in life.
Seeking a way to serve
Our journey begins.
Ted Cohn worked remotely as a software developer for 16 years, and wanted to connect with mentors to help him with his consulting business. Diane Cohn was a YouTuber who noticed that big creators had fans with unanswered questions, some even offering to pay to speak with them.
Disruption turns to inspiration
Covid as catalyst.
During the pandemic, video calls became the norm for people around the world. One of Diane’s YouTube subscribers approached her, offering to pay her for personalized, expert real estate advice. The lightbulb went on, she and Ted collaborated, and Wildeye came to life.
Bringing the vision to life
We created a prototype.
Seeing that people wanted to connect with influencers but couldn’t due to too many requests, we also found influencers needing to monetize, who liked connecting with fans, but conveniently and safely on their own terms. So we created a BidToTalk, a marketplace where people could pay for private video calls with influencers.
Funding our startup
Raising seed money.
In Q3 2020, we secured $38,200 in private capital, and in Q4 2020, we ran a successful equity crowdfunding campaign on Wefunder, raising over $270,000 seed. During this time, we brought influencers on board to test the prototype and provide feedback. We learned many valuable lessons that led us to develop the expert consulting platform you see today.
