The 24-year-old maestro
Sometimes frustrations lead us up to greater heights. For Jojo Hedaya, loss of emails from a friend as they got ‘lost’ in other thousand emails resulted into the birth of Unroll.Me, an email organization tool, which scans through the emails and organizes all the subscription emails into a single folder, the Rollup.
Besides the organized emails, Unroll.Me allows the user to decide the time of arrival of the Rollup, and a chance to unsubscribe from all of them at once. Jojo Hedaya and his business partner are never bothered with the upcoming competition for they believe their simplicity signature is what sets them apart.
Who is Jojo Hedaya?
Born in late December 1989, Jojo Hedaya acquired his early education in Jewish schools in New York and later went for further studies in Israel. Though Jojo did not graduate, he now stands as the CEO and co-founder of Unroll.Me, a company founded in 2011.
Unroll.Me with a beautiful new redesign
Since its last iteration, Unroll.Me has edged up towards better user experience with the new design. While the former version worked by showing users the subscriptions they were signed up for and allowing them to either delete, unsubscribe or add up to Rollup, the new version rolls up these emails and it’s up to the user to opt-in to receiving them. According to the CEO, Jojo Hedaya, it is an interesting approach, especially since the new users might fail at first to realize that the emails which have been rolled up won’t be visible unless they specifically choose to have them appear in their inboxes.
Entrepreneurial takeaways from Jojo Hedaya’s young career
Joining the likes of Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg, Jojo Hedaya is yet another evidence that age doesn’t count in achieving success. According to him and his partner, skills at any project are preferable over education, though he wouldn’t advise one to forego studies. Besides being simple, Unroll.Me was built and grown through Hedaya’s ability to create an all-star team and the initial courage to start up the company. Selling Unroll.Me to Slice was a considerable risk, but it paid off.
