Mysterious number 13 had implemented it’s misfortune, which is why part 13 got stuck in something that did not allow it to reach you on time. Maybe you even thought we were out of breath and quietly getting tired. You know, Rent&Go is currently in its best shape, ready for the EBS student company competition, new challenges and ready to present to you our landing page. Enjoy!
Loreta: “The day had come when we went to conquer the city and produce some decent photo content. We firstly decided to take some pictures in the parking lot, which had really nice lighting. But – the snow. It made me very annoyed. The pattern went something like this: you’d find a pretty good place to get a banger picture, walk closer and find the same crap every time – the brown ‘snow’ lays there and laughs at us. Complete nonsense. We walked around the parking lot, which looked to others like we had forgotten where we had parked our car and were panicing as we were looking for it. The search took us to a couple of parking spaces which were not full of little snow piles. And then we took photos with pleasure.
Next, we headed for an underground car park, where we hoped to get completely snow-free pictures. Fortunately for us, we got them! Yayy!
Something similar will definitely go to the Rent & Go landing page. So you, dear blog readers, are the first to see the Rent & Go landing page image content!
Then we decided that we had enough of the parking lots and underground car parks. We headed out and took some pictures outside, regardless of the snow. We headed to Kalamaja, where we would find a calm urban milieu. You already know what awaited us there… – it’s good that we were even able to take pictures at all between all of the snow piles. But we made the best possible out of the streets of Kalamaja that the snowy day had allowed us.
The title of such a work could be, for example, “Noon Kalamaja in its own juices”.
Kalamaja – ticked off. We headed to Tallinn’s most popular district aka Noblessner. Although we didn’t know if there were any open parking spaces at all, we decided to go and see. And there were some! But I can honestly say that winter beat us 1-0 there.
There was one other place we were also actually thinking about – Kadriorg. We tried to make the best of it and went on an intelligence trip to the streets of Kadriorg. When looking for a suitable place to take pictures in the city, we definitely seemed like lost tourists. We looked at every house as it was a grand sight, took pictures from every possible corner and made it look as if we were big architecture enthusiasts.
That’s a picture which is definitely on the memory card of every exemplary tourist’s camera.
All the pictures that we needed at the time had been taken. All that was left to do was to choose the best out of everything to put them on the landing page. ”
Markus: “I am emotionally in a good place with Rent&Go. I told a comparison jokingly to Gustav the other day – Rent&Go is like a relationship, sometimes there are bad days where you have to fight with each other but that does not mean that there is no love left. We have had synergy occur with us thankfully. Even with school assignments we try to do things together since our cooperation is out of this league when compared to randomly assigned groups.
The EBS competition, where they want to get rid of 2000 euros, has quietly approached. We would be happy to take it for ourselves. Before the main day, where our idea is presented to the jury, we have presented two samples in the lecture of the student companies. Both times have gone great. Ülle praised us so greatly that I later watched the recording of the lecture and recorded for myself the praise Ülle told us: “I am faint with excitement! Really good presentation!”. In the future, this recording will be the ringtone of all the phones in our company. After answering the questions, Ülle told me, “Good, Markus. You can go into politics, very well answered!”. The feathers of my ego are now cleaned out of the dirt of doubts that have accumulated over time, and I think Rent & Go is ready to shine in the competition, and so am I.
Of course, it should be noted that our course has teams in addition to us that deserve first place. Seriously. I look forward to what is going to happen. We are still thinking that even if we do not get the money, it does not mean that our idea is not gold. We may be naive, but we really believe in our idea. I have also secretly asked Gustav and Loreta’s thoughts with my questions to see if they really believe in Rent & Go. And you know what? They fully believe in it. Personally, I think that is one of the most important aspects – that we believe in what we do. Otherwise nothing great will come out of it.
But now onto the landing page – Rentandgo.ee. Forgive us for our amateurism and acknowledge our effort. We have given it our best with our skills. A cool place in it, for example, is where you can calculate your income as a parking space owner. Nice and sweet when we can say that something is “done and done!”. In addition to the three of us we had Robert, who wrote the code, our coursemate Frank Karro, who offers us web hosting (firstname.lastname@example.org), and our friend from BFM, who helped us make the logo a little less pixelic, work on the landing page.
In conclusion – stay tuned, because the competition is nearing rapidly! In the next part you will find out how we did. We will dedicate the next part entirely to the EBS competition – what was our presentation like, what did we learn from the experience and what kind of feedback did we get for our idea!
