Landon Vago-Hughes | Chief Product Officer | YSplit | Brooklyn, New York, United States | Accounting, Banking, Financial, and Insurance | Whilst studying at College I cofounded an app called Cluttr – A productivity tool for roommates. We grew to 2000 users by the end of my final year so it became clear that I would continue on this journey fulltime. I then turned down an offer to work for Cisco Systems in Silicon Valley. Being fulltime allowed us to grow faster. Apple picked up on our progress and made up ‘App of the Day’ in October 2018. We were then offered £50000 from 3 angel investors. This gave us enough confidence to apple to YCombinator, the worlds most prestigious startup accelerator in the world. We rejected the £50000 initial investment offer and as we were accepted into YCombinator who gave us $150,000 and taking far less equity. We immediately pivoted to YSplit a group payments app that spun out of our original idea. 3 months later we raised $1MN from investors such as Paul Baucheit (Founder of Gmail), Solomon Hykes (Founder of Docker) and Paul Graham (Founder of YC). Today we help 1000s of users across the US manage shared bills. Linking to over 10,000 companies nationwide.
