The story of Ambytion is the story of recording small steps to a big dream. Founder Thomas arrived at the idea of Ambytion in a natural and organic moment. Having achieved a goal of his own in 2013, Thomas took to his Facebook to write on the wall and share his achievement.
He shared with friends his TripIt content, wrote it on his Facebook – and yet something was still missing. Thomas had goals, he had a place to share things – but he didn’t have a place to share goals that was purpose-built. A place that would help him reflect on the past, plan in the present, and work towards new goals in future.
There was the goal achieved, there was a community – but they were not combined. From here the belief something new could be built was borne; and so the start of Ambytion was formed.
Soon after, Thomas started writing the software for what would become Ambytion.
Thomas wrote the lines of code not yet 100% certain what would be the end product, but assured there were people out there who wanted that chance to truly celebrate their goals.
A product that really celebrated the achievement, and did so step by step. Not just a simple diary, not a calendar, or ‘to do’ – but a record and memento of all those wonderful things in life worth spending time working towards; and a foundation on which to build new plans for the future.
Right now in the beta stage, and set to go live soon, Ambytion today offers users the chance to showcase life as it should be lived. Capturing that movement of achievement, recognising it, and sharing it with the world.
Integrated with Pinterest, Ambytion has been built anew upon the old and famous saying ‘a picture is worth a 1000 words’.
Ambytion has also been built to serve as a starting point. Just as it began with Thomas, so too do so many users now begin planning, building, and tracking their progress on goals with Ambytion.
At its core Ambytion is the story of achievements, and making progress on your goals. Thomas began Ambytion looking to track his progress learning one skill. Much time has passed between then and now, and many more skills began and mastered – but at its core the momentum and the love of a life of progress has been central.
That is the ethos of Ambytion. It’s your life and your goals – now pursued so much easier with Ambytion. Whether you wish to master one or 1000 skills: Ambytion is your ladder of opportunity.
