About
Accomplish is a marketplace app that connects entrepreneurs and startups to one another for in-person collaboration and to experts for paid advice.

Industry
Landscape

The gig economy is the future of work in the United States - Accomplish is providing another avenue toward this. On-demand is the expectation with the millennial and Generation X crowd and continues to grow with the largest players being Uber, Lyft, Postmates, TaskRabbit, AirBnB, Instacart, and HotelsTonight. In 2015, 35% of the country identified with the title "freelancer" or "entrepreneur" and that number continues to grow.

The
Problem

Entrepreneurs, startups and founders make too many mistakes their first year (if they even survive the first year) because proper and reliable advice to not readily available. Searching on the internet will only get you so far and is likely to leave you even more confused than when you started. These self-starters have a vested interest in the success of their company and outsourcing assignments is not always what's best - which is where the importance of an in-person conversation comes in!

The
Solution

Accomplish is an on-demand marketplace created to tap into the talent around you, offering users the opportunity for a conversation with an expert or peer in their local coffee shop or co-working space. Advisors can earn badges toward becoming an "expert" and have a conversation be paid securely and immediately through the app, based on that expert's set hourly rate. Users on the "student" side can earn badges toward local rewards that facilitate introductions to their peers or discounts at places they frequently work. Accomplish is here to help you start your success story. We're in the business of making more start-ups succeed!

Business
Model

Accomplish takes a transaction fee on top of any meeting paid through the app.
