Why Rocket Bootstrapper?

4 specific answers come directly to my mind when I wonder myself why I decided to launch rocketbootstrapper.com.

  • To Keep notes of my entrepreneur experiences (for myself and obviously with those who will find them interesting)
  • To motivate myself to dig deeper each subject that matters, and in the process improving my own knowledge.
  • To improve my english. (My mother tongue is french)
  • Because it is never too late to have a social media presence. (Yes I created my personal twitter account as a 2016 new year resolution with this website.)

About Thomas Thelliez

Entrepreneur

In 2010, I founded my first company “Eenox” and sold it two years later.

In 2013, I co-founded Jooxter, a company focused in smart building innovation. At Jooxter, we built a Saas product (mobile & web) improving occupancy rates of large buildings using an innovative technology based on IoT, Big Data and Machine Learning (AI). After two years of self-financing, we raised 1 Million Euros to expand our sales effort in Europe (Luxembourg, Belgium, UK, Italy, etc).

Open source project creator

In 2007, I created the “KontrolPack” open source project which has been downloaded more than 100 000 times and is still integrated in Ubuntu, Gentoo and Arch Linux.

In 2009, I created a second open source project “FeelHome”. I learned marketing techniques and created sufficient buzz on Tech medias such as LifeHacker or MacLife resulting in thousands of downloads each week.

Freelancer

I help companies migrating or building their IT or mobile based architecture as a software architect and digital transformation expert.
