GoDaddy launches Flare, a crowd-sourcing app for business ideas
Need some spark for a business idea or a veteran’s input in a moment’s notice? GoDaddy’s new app, Flare, accomplishes that with other like-minded business owners and entrepreneurs in a communal setting that fosters feedback and collaboration. The app is now available for free on the Google Play Store and the iOS App Store.
The app itself works like Tinder, but for sound business strategies. Swipe left to “skip” unfeasible daydreams, or swipe right to “snooze” on concepts that you want to mull over. Tapping on the idea will let the user learn more about it, and it opens up the option to “love” it. With enough love, the genius behind the business idea can open the floor to the idea’s followers for brainstorming and insight. Users are free to trade tactics on business models, penetration efforts, and even pricing strategies to better appreciate the intricacies of each decision.
Other features of Flare include Top Charts, where it showcases the top 20 ideas on any given day. This allows passionate entrepreneurs to stay on top of amazing business concepts and strategies. If you’re feeling extra sociable, there’s the option to login to Flare via Facebook or LinkedIn. Flare users can also explore nearby ideas, which is helpful for narrowing down to relevant ventures and local businesses.
“Singapore sits in the top 10 of the best startup ecosystems in the world 1 , with above-average marks when it comes to startup experience, funding and market reach. With a business-friendly environment as well as a government that’s highly supportive of the startup ecosystem, Singapore is attracting entrepreneurs from both the APAC region as well as around the world. Flare is where the seeds of ideas go to be nurtured and developed. By growing ideas in a community of potential customers, there will be days when a single thought can flourish with support from the ecosystem and may quickly turn into an up and running business,” said Roger Chen, Vice President of Asia at GoDaddy.
