I posted about Flubit.com a few days ago and I was so impressed with their business that I decided to reach out to the team and arrange an interview.
Because I am super cool (jokes!) I managed to get hold of the Co-Founder and CEO of Flubit, Bertie Stephens who agreed to do an interview for Scaleogy.
This is EXCELLENT because he is a REAL entrepreneur with a REAL business that is going places fast. They have raised $1million in their first round of Angel investing and a further $1.7million in the second round. They are well on their way to becoming a household name.
The concept for Flubit is simply awesome. You want something online… You find out where you can get it cheapest, then you tell Flubit.com and they then go and get it cheaper!
What a fantastic concept and I urge you to check out the video below where Bertie and I talk about business, branding, funding and growth.
PLEASE NOTE: We had a few internet connection problems in the early part of this interview but it gets better.

So what do you think?
Do you love Monaco? Who doesn’t right, it’s a pretty awesome place. Well imagine this a yacht based on the streets of Monaco.
The staggering 155m Streets of Monaco yacht is expected to cost over $1.1 billion to build and is modelled on a section of Monte Carlo, Monaco.
A LAVISH new yacht recreating the billionaire’s playground of Monaco is set to become the world’s most expensive yacht.
Currently in the design stage, the super-ship will feature smaller versions of the state’s famous landmarks such as the Monte Carlo Casino and racetrack, as well as swimming pools, tennis courts, a cinema, a go kart track and a Hotel de Paris.
Instead of traditional decks the one-of-a-kind ship will have buildings, and instead of a swimming platform it will have a beach.
Travellers will also spot waterfalls, a swim-in Jacuzzi-bar, helicopters and submarines on board.
The one-of a kind ship could be home to 16 guests and 70 crew with the main apartment spread over three floors and 445 sq m.
Linking upper and lower living areas is the Atrium – featuring seven guest suites, a bathroom, bedroom, dressing room, reception and balcony.
The idea for the super-boat, designed by Yacht Island Design, was sparked by car racing and developed into something more innovative.
“It is basically a floating city,” company director Rob McPherson said.
“The design theme called for a unique yacht that reflected the style and sophistication of the principality.
“We want to create a truly unique environment that could take the principality of Monaco to the ocean.”
The ship will exceed the $1 billion price tag reportedly paid by Roman Abramovich for his Eclipse yacht.
A second creation by Yacht Island Design will be a smaller 85-metre yacht based on a Pacific Island theme.
