Meet Kevin Craven of BoutFace

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kevin Craven.

Kevin, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I was always thinking of ways to make money in this fast paced world and apps came to mind due to the many success stories and relevant statistics I stayed abreast of. I started thinking of app after app and decided that since I had so many ideas I might as well start and app development company.

Has it been a smooth road?
I has been a rough road and still is a struggle. One thing is that it is hard for people to realize your vision and when you do finally get someone to realize that you do have something that is very useful…like your mind then you will have to overcome the obstacles they put before you too. So in short I don’t trust too many people because either they want to use you for what you have or they really don’t want to see you succeed where they haven’t been able to.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
My company is called BoutFace, LLC. I am an idea magnet for apps, my breakout app is called “VIGIL” soon to be launched in the app store. It is a personal security app that was epiphanized from a situation at UT Austin in April 2016 when a female student was found dead near campus (www.kvue.com/news/local/ut-austin-student-death-what-we-know-so…/122968911). This app could have saved her and this is the app that we will be most renowned for, amongst others like “CannaFinders” which is an app designed to rival Leafly and WeedMaps.

What sets my company apart from the others is the fact that we utilize all forms of technology and social media integrated into our apps making them more user friendly and enjoyable to use instead of using the app just to do the one thing they were designed to do. I am most proud of “VIGIL” because it will allow the user to feel more safe and secure when travelling alone and I was the one to make this happen:)

Is our city a good place to do what you do?
Los Angeles is the PERFECT city for a business like BoutFace because of our diverse population and requirements of each individual. There will always be a need for an app and when especially if it is a most needed app. If a person was to start a business, then Los Angeles is the place to launch or have your grand opening because whatever you decide to open… the Angelenos will patronize helping your business to flourish.
