do you want to search for things that are not available to Google, such as social networking sites, and personal information that is available in the cloud and password protected?. A 19 year old Israeli graduates of senior high school students to give up military service, spent three months in the Y Combinator, has tried several projects, and make a product in the last 48 hours, finally received the favor of investors. The 19 year old Daniel Gross and his 27 year old co-founder Robby Walker developed Greplin, a search engine needs to get user authorization, it can access Facebook, Twitter, Google, Salesforce and other content document. The site just on the line at the end of February. Inc.com interviewed 19 year old Daniel.
Greplin is how to come?
I’m from israel. Graduated from high school, was ready to go to military service. Then applied for Y Combinator. I did not expect to join, and later got a chance to interview. The weekend in San Francisco was long and interesting. They react very quickly, they don’t like what I do, but they seem to like me. They wanted me to go back to San Francisco, so I flew back to San Francisco.
three months I developed several projects, not a color. At the end of the Y Combinator class, you will have the opportunity to stage the show to the world. Our project has just been rejected, so we only have 48 hours to prepare for the final show. I went to the home of the founder of the Y Paul Graham, he said, "the development of what you think is now useful to you, rather than what you think may be useful to others."". So I did a demo version in the last 48 hours.
people react very strange. I’m just a 18 year old kid with messy hair. But the idea was supported. So for the next six months, I spent the night developing a viable product, and then got a $780 thousand angel investment. These angels are angels: Gmail author Paul Buchheit, Chris Dixon, Square author, and Facebook CTO Bret Taylor.

"If it’s cool," it’s usually not a good idea, because you’re not the ideal user. If you are not a target user, it is difficult to develop a reliable product. Because you have to make decisions, unless you are the target
