The last couple of months have been unexpectedly quiet for The Neon Project. Rather, quiet in the outside and busy in the inside. It’s over a year since The Neon Project was born as a brand to hide a one-person company that really, really wanted to be part of a group of people resolving interesting challenges with technology.
Wasn’t The Neon Project a chatbot company? Not really, The Neon Project was the evolution of bots4health precisely because I didn’t want it to be a chatbot company. It was all about people, processes, and products.
However, chatbots were at the core of The Neon Project, specially in the way it was displayed to the world, since day one. Chatbots were a door opener for public speaking, brought me to build a community that is today over a thousand people strong, and are the only reason why I got into podcasting in the late summer.
To prove it, back in February 2018, I accepted a project with Doctors Without Border that had nothing to do with chatbots. The project was part of a large program with a very interesting scope, and it was going to give me a chance to contribute to a cause I am personally attached to. Moreover: This project gave me a chance to form a team with two awesome humans I had long wanted to work with: Javier Aguirre and Miguel Calero.
The MSF project has been our first chance to work together as a team of three, but I had collaborated with both of them, separately, in the past.
When we realised we were better when we worked together, we started working towards onboarding them to the company, legally speaking. I am very happy to announce the process is over and we are ready now. We took time to think and had conversations about our goals, conditions, ambitions. What kind of people and projects did we like? What kind of lifestyle did we want?
We are finally a legally incorporated company where the three of us are cofounders with a very similar participation, the same vision, and a common mission for the next few years.
