In late 2020, my brother and I co-founded Bitbu, a platform enabling musicians to collaborate from idea to release.

Utilizing Svelte for its rapid UI development, Go for backend stability, and AWS for global scale deployment, we crafted a highly efficient yet scalable solution, despite the challenges of a smaller ecosystem and the complexities of startup growth.

Our journey through Bitbu, marked by significant learning in technology and business management, culminated in December 2023 when we shifted our focus away from the company, reflecting on the project's sustainability and the hurdles of competing with minimal resources.
