James Grant began Weavee Ltd. at WeWork Aldgate East where he dabbled in the
recruitment world and had a solid goal as to where he wanted the product to go,
but it needed more… During that six months he learned a lot about what makes a
great product. In fact it wasn’t even the product, it was the concept, the core
values, the people who learn from each other. The people shape what the company
would do, what James wanted to do.
By pushing the Weavee concept, James was able to capture the imagination of the
community, to create a collaborative vibe, because everyone could contribute to
something that was still evolving. That doesn’t end. Even two years from now
there will be things to improve, create, enhance at Weavee. Weavee is something
that is going to take a lot of time and effort to finish, it is a big data
project which will constantly evolve and get better - a project that will
ultimately help more people.
The important part of being a startup in that space was the product was never
going to be finished, but during that time it evolved. James was able to use the
opportunity at the accelerator to think big, scale the idea and capture the minds
of people. He learned not to sell a solution, but to solve a problem. Real world
solutions to persistent problems, not products, were the key to success.
Weavee is now in its third soft launch, people are using and loving the product
and a strong team has been put in place to take James vision to the next level.
The security of the team is allowing him to focus on what the product means to
him personally and to create something that he feels has value, creating
something that truly has value to individuals seeking career happiness.
James remains committed to his passion, to turn clients dreams into reality.
