Hello to everyone out there!
We’re the Konkura team and we’re currently working on a new social networking site for anyone with a competitive, sporting spirit. Over the coming weeks and months we’ll be describing progress and our motivating philosophy.
First off, why Konkura?
Well, obviously it sounds a lot like “Conqueror”, which captures what we’re all about – winning! Unfortunately Conqueror.com is already the website of a big paper manufacturer, plus it’s a pain to spell.
However, the word Konkura is also the Esperanto for “competitive”, which is really, really what we’re all about. Esperanto may not have come anywhere near being the universal language it set out to be, but a tip for web entrepreneurs – it’s a good source of site names!
So why are we so interested in promoting competitiveness?
We believe that for maximum performance in all aspects of life, particularly in sport and fitness, you need rivals to push you forwards to be the best you can be. No matter how self-motivated you are, competing with friends and rivals always helps you achieve more and makes whatever you do more fun. We’re social, competitive animals.
And we don’t just take this view for elite athletes. We believe everyone has the capability to be the best at something, they just need to push themselves and compete with others to achieve their goals.
So konkura.com is going to be the place to be if you’ve got any sort of competitive spirit. Whether you’re a serious athlete looking to see how you compare with other serious athletes around the world, or a sports club looking to record, motivate and make training more fun, or just someone who likes to find new fun challenges, konkura will be for you. It’ll be the place where you can take on the world (or just your mates) at any kind of sport, fitness or other challenge you can think of.
Stay tuned, interesting times are ahead
