Below is our recent interview with Alejandro Gonzalez, Founder & CEO at My Walrus App:
Q: Could you provide our readers with a brief introduction to your company?
A: At the beginning of the pandemic, restaurants and bars were hit the hardest when brick and mortar places started to close. We realized that many of our friends, seasoned chefs and restaurant owners were left with a reduced salary or worse, without a job. This presented an opportunity for us. We realized that people had great culinary skills but lacked the technical expertise to tap into the digital markets. This is where My Walrus App was born. We focused on creating an intuitive platform designed for teaching online cooking classes.
While we have now expanded into other industries, like yoga, art & crafts, music and more, the principal idea of offering an easy-to-use all-in-one platform to share people’s unique skills with the world online has remained.
Q: Can you give us more insights into your platform?
A: My Walrus App is the first platform of its kind, offering an all-in-one solution for creating virtual events and teaching classes online. Our platform features advanced interactive capabilities that make learning for the participants easy, fun, and engaging.
My Walrus App lets the user easily manage their online classes or virtual events and meetings from beginning to end. From creating a simple web page to promote the class, to handling participant registration with payment processing, sending email confirmations and reminders, offering a digital multiple camera angle switcher, and guided written step-by-step instructions. The platform covers it all. My Walrus App also offers live audience participation during the event and the collection of participant feedback and detailed sales reports afterwards are also included.
Q: What can we expect from your company in next 6 months? What are your plans?
A: We are in the process of adding some exciting new features to My Walrus App. In the next following weeks we will be releasing a “Sponsors”, a feature for our hosts to showcase their sponsors. We will be releasing bundles, which allow hosts to offer grouped events at a discounted rate, and even Paypal integration.
We also have a long roadmap of features that we will be focusing on in the next 2 quarters. From adding Spanish support to expanding our participant capacity to up to 3000 participants via webinar mode. We will also be working on offering series and subscriptions for our hosts.
Further ahead we’re also focusing on adding more features to improve the participant experience like in-event music and trivia questions.
Q: What is the best thing about your company that people might not know about?
A: Because of our diverse backgrounds we are able to provide customer support in Spanish and English, a service not many teaching platforms offer. We are also a very agile company and always prioritize our customers’ needs in the development process.
