KAPTÁR faces – Jonathan Patrick

Jonathan Patrick - KAPTÁRarcok - KAPTÁR coworking Budapest

 I chose KAPTÁR because of the strong community and because it felt not only like a cosy and friendly environment to work, but also to meet some great new people. Through KAPTÁR, I met some great friends who made Budapest feel like a real home to me!

What are the biggest milestones in your life?

My most recent big milestone has been the journey I started earlier this year – to build 20 startup experiments in a year, and share the process in public. It’s been tough, and I still have a way to go, but along the way I’ve learnt how to build full-stack web apps, have written 6 essays and picked up 2,000 users of my products! You can follow the journey here.

What excites you most about new challenges?

What excites me most about new challenges is having to learn something totally new and grow in the process of doing so. I’m a big fan of testing my limits and a strong believer that anyone can learn something new, they just have to commit the energy, time and enthusiasm to it. Regardless of whether the challenge is won or not, you always walk away with new knowledge or experience, which makes it worth it.

What are you most proud of in your life?

One of the things I’m most proud of is running the Uganda International Marathon – a hill marathon under the heat of the African sun. The craziest part was that I hadn’t run in more than 5 years… but I signed up to force myself to start running! Over 6 months, I ran in the nights and in the cold of winter, going from total non-runner all the way through to actually arriving in Uganda and (somehow) surviving the course.
