Q: Can you tell us a bit about yourself and your startup?

David: After seven years in a traditional architecture business, despite practices being done in a slightly innovative way, the industry is still plagued with challenges faced by all architects and designers. These challenges ignited my desire to streamline and optimise architecture processes, compliance, and efficiency through data. Aichitect was born from this determination to make a change.

Q: What has been the biggest highlight of your founder journey so far?

David: One of my proudest moments as a founder is being accepted into the Black Valley accelerator program. This milestone signifies the recognition of my vision and the potential for Aichitect to reshape the architecture landscape.

Q: Are there valuable lessons from your journey that you'd like to share with aspiring founders?

David: Well … I’d have to say my advice to aspiring founders is pretty straightforward: Just start and figure it out along the way. My journey is a testament to the power of taking that first step, even when the path is uncertain.

Q: If you had the opportunity to invite someone to become part of the Black Valley community, who would it be and why?

David: I would extend the invitation to disadvantaged young people under 21. I believe exposing them to this vibrant entrepreneurial ecosystem and encouraging them to dream big can expand their horizons beyond their current challenges.

Q: Any closing thoughts you'd like to share with our readers?

David: My Journey has been powered by determination and faith. As I look ahead, I’m committed to pushing forward and making a lasting impact.
