The Genius Behind Diamond Applications
At 17 years old, I won my first entrepreneurship competition as a student at Singapore American School. Although I always wanted to pursue a career in entrepreneurship, this was the first time I realized I had the potential to start my own business. Fast forward seven years and I’m starting my third company – Diamond Applications. However, this company wasn’t born out of wildly successful entrepreneurial ventures but rather from my earliest struggles as an entrepreneur. After building my first application, I learned that not having that right development team can be the difference between a great idea materializing into wonderful success or becoming a file of useless code. Unfortunately, our first development team gave us the latter.
With $75,000 sunk into the abyss that had become our worthless code, we faced an uphill battle and my first entrepreneurial dreams had been set back. However, I would soon have another dream. After fortunately stumbling upon a senior developer in India whom I began developing a strong relationship with, a spark for a new business was born. Discussing how the landscape of software and digital development needs to change, we decided we should be the ones to change this. Too many companies have forgone quality and integrity to bump their revenues – all while leaving small businesses and entrepreneurs in the dust.
Forming two-partnered companies in India and the US, we would begin our journey with a mission that is unique to the industry. We would look to help people and businesses confidently build digital products and applications that would improve their business and bring their ideas to life – never sacrificing quality at the expense of revenue or time. Most importantly, we wouldn’t lose the transparency and integrity that I so desperately needed when I first started in this business.
I first got into the application business because I had an idea that would change the nightlife industry for the better. While I am still working on this dream, I have come to realize – through first-hand process, research, and studying – how powerful properly leveraged mobile applications can be. Just think that in 2017, the world has over two billion smartphones that contain millions of more computing speed than the same computers that put astronauts on the moon in 1969. Yet how many industries or companies are utilizing these powerful universal devices? I want to change that. I want to give all companies, whether big or small, the opportunity to develop applications that mobilize them for the landscape of the future. Even with power and efficiency aside, mobile applications offer us a world of possibilities.
If you’re a small business, large corporation, or entrepreneur in need of a mobile application, Diamond Applications is here for you! If you need a new website, back-end dashboard, analytics platform or any other type of digital software product and maintenance, Diamond Applications is here for you, too! We don’t just build digital products to fill work orders – instead, we use our knowledge and passion to develop and deliver the highest quality products at unbelievably affordable prices.
