About The Customer
StowShare's customers are individuals or businesses looking for affordable and convenient storage solutions. Traditional storage units can be expensive and far away, making them inconvenient for many users. StowShare offers a solution to this problem by allowing people to find storage in their area from hosts or become hosts themselves. This makes storage and parking a lot closer, more convenient, and affordable. The platform is designed to be user-friendly, allowing customers to easily list their space or find a suitable storage space in their vicinity. The ability to cancel anytime without any cancellation fees adds to the convenience and flexibility offered by StowShare.
The Challenge
StowShare, a startup aiming to become the 'Airbnb of storage', faced the challenge of creating a platform that would allow users to easily find and rent storage spaces in their vicinity at a lower cost. The founder, Tristan Bietsch, had a vision to create a company that would serve over a million people and make a significant difference in the world. However, the main obstacle was the lack of coding skills to develop a marketplace website MVP. Traditional storage units were often expensive, far away, too small, and came with contracts, making them inconvenient for many users. The challenge was to create a platform that would allow people to find storage in their area from hosts or become hosts themselves, making storage and parking more accessible, convenient, and affordable.
The Solution
To overcome the challenge, Bietsch turned to Bubble, a powerful no-code platform that allowed him to bring his ideas to life quickly. Bubble's easy-to-use interface and fast online deployment enabled Bietsch to go from an idea to having an MVP online with 20+ users within a month. The StowShare app works similarly to Airbnb's process. Users can sign up to either become a host or find a host to store their stuff. Once a space is listed, other users can reserve it by searching within their area and clicking on the listing. The platform also allows users to cancel anytime without any cancellation fees. Bubble's no-code platform was instrumental in creating a marketplace website in no time, making it as easy as editing a picture in Photoshop.
Operational Impact
  • The use of Bubble's no-code platform has resulted in significant operational benefits for StowShare. The platform's ease of use and fast deployment allowed StowShare to quickly bring its idea to life, resulting in a user-friendly app that meets the needs of its customers. The ability to quickly iterate and make changes based on user feedback has been crucial in ensuring the app's success. The first milestone was making everything just work. Once the website was done, it was amazing seeing someone sit down and use it with ease, and having their listing pop up on the map. The operational success of StowShare is a testament to the power of no-code platforms like Bubble in enabling entrepreneurs to quickly and efficiently bring their ideas to life.
Quantitative Benefit
  • Within one month of using Bubble, StowShare went from an idea to having an MVP online with 20+ users.
  • StowShare was able to quickly gain its first user and subsequently 20+ users overnight after posting on hacker news.
  • StowShare aims to serve over 1 million people, providing them with affordable and convenient storage solutions.
