What Is Coming Up

Since our Happiness Formula launch in June, we have been working hard.

First of all we applied to Startup Chile, which is an international incubator program in Santiago, Chile.  We submitted our application for the fifth round of the program (second this year) by July 10, 2012. 1509 startups from 61 countries are competing for 100 spots. So wish us good luck and if all goes well, we will be in Chile from Oct 2012 – April 2013.

We have been actively gathering feedback from people who created their formulas. One way to give us feedback is via our 5 Question Survey. So far we learned that participants want to know the world happiness ratio. When asked whether they would share their formulas, they said they would share any data if it was anonymous. One person said he still needs clarification on what the happiness formula is. One user’s answers to questions 4 and 5:

What do you like the most about this site and formula? “Chance to break down and think about various aspects of my happiness”.

What do you like the least about the site? How can we improve it? “Formula seems a little simplistic, ranking life aspects and then ranking their importance – I feel like I do that already in my own head. Also, site didn’t explain what the % was at the end.”

Besides the survey, we received other feedback from participants via live testing or email. They told us that after the test they want to be told what their biggest gaps are and to be directed to generated solutions or worksheets on what to do for specific categories. They want to be able to ask their own questions and to have more stats on The Ultimate Answer community, their highs and lows and how they change day to day.

What we are going to do: Add world happiness ratio and user count and three highest gaps from the world happiness formula to the front page. We will create a Facebook app to make it easier to share your happiness stats with friends.

We will be showing our demo on Aug 22, 2012 at 7PM at Santa Monica New Tech Meetup in Coloft on 920 Santa Monica Blvd. Come to see our presentation!
