A marketplace for
five minute conversations.

A five minute call can save you hours of Googling. As much as we want AI and robots to solve all of our problems, sometimes it pays to speak to a real person. Anyone is a marketplace to access expertise and a second-income for those that can help others solve problems.

The story of Anyone

Former Googler and ex-CMO of Alphabet company Jigsaw Alfred Malmros spent a large portion of his career tackling conversation design. He partnered with one of Sweden's most awarded communication experts David Orlic to tackle the return of human intelligence.

No video calls.
No text messages.
No never-ending conversations.

Both our teams sat down together with some fairly terrible coffee in a conference room in Walthamstow and came together to define what would become the MVP vision of Anyone. We did this by looking at the passion economy, consulting as an industry, and marketplace ecosystems.

What did we learn?

  • Social media and technology have become a force of polarisation that divides people rather than bringing us together.
  • People are sick of paying consultants to deliver obscure objectives on a per hour model.

We decided it didn't have to stay that way. Anyone would drive the return of the phone call, and all conversations should be set with a fixed price and be just five minutes in length. Then, we took a sharpie and started out by sketching the Anyone profile interface on a whiteboard.

Taking the strange out of talking to strangers.

We knew that providing Anyone's experts with a platform to display their story and experience was going to be key in getting callers to ask a question, pitch an idea, or get a second opinion.

Also, we knew that with any marketplace platform, you need to have a safe environment with vetted experts. We built a rating and review system so that all users can leave feedback, and a verification system so that all experts on the platform would be who they say they are. After the call, you'd get a real-time call transcript so that you could revisit your conversation and report any issues to the Anyone team.

The race to Demo Day.

Our teams collaboratively spent the next two months building the minimum viable product of the Anyone iOS app. All in a race to present in front of investors, influencers, and entrepreneurs at a large Demo Day in Sweden.

From there, we worked week by week gathering user feedback, making product iterations, gaining traction, and launching new in-app events every week. We are currently working with Anyone to nail product-market fit, launch an Android app and web platform, adapt for scale, and craft great five minute conversations for users all over the world.

We've found incredible value in working with Lucky Duck over these last 6 months. The team has proven very valuable for our product development, and we look forward to continue working together.
