The Interview

Heroik: How did Pinstriped get started? What’s your origin story?
Thomas: Pinstriped is a Spin off from a digital agency. Some time ago we made a DVD interface custom solution for a client. That was the early foundation for Pinstriped. Being able to browse folders and open files on a DVD from a slick custom branded interface, instead of the usual folders.
Heroik: What sort of work were you shuffling through when presenting to clients? What’s your professional background?
Thomas: I spent a number of years in the financial industry working for Wall street firms. After that I have founded a 3d/animation production, which has since then morphed into a digital agency. I have a had a lot of client meetings in this capacity.
Heroik: What lies in store for the future of pinstriped? New features? Mobile App? Pricing Strategy? Etc.
Thomas:We have a lot of plans for Pinstriped. A tablet version is definitely planned. Remote meeting and post-meeting sharing of files is also something we want to get into. We are planning to be a subscription service. With a very affordable price, but aiming for high volume. The plan is to always have a free version. Currently we are communicating to individual users and to their needs/pain. Long term and once we have received legitimacy the idea is to target the corporate market with an Enterprise version.
Heroik: Are you currently seeking investors/buyers/etc.? Who are you looking for?
Thomas: We are looking for funding, as we are under-resourced. Especially considering all the things we want to do with Pinstriped.
