The Team

The backstory

Mingo started out with the desire for a more user-friendly look at our data in MongoDB.

The first unreleased version was built on Meteor in 2018. Once we realized how well it worked, we recreated it using Vue.js and wrapped it with Electron into a downloadable app.

Our mission is to design a more intuitive way of managing your MongoDB data.

Startups Crushing It! is a newsletter about early-stage (before series A) technology startups.

I look for strong positive signals using the FPTM model: Founders — Product — Traction — Mission.

I interview the founder(s), toy around with products, crunch numbers, and based on that, I decide which startups to feature.
