Summary Problem Solution Industry Landscape
Accomplish is the first on-demand marketplace to facilitate conversations between micro-consultants; in person and in your own city. We're here to service the startup boom; taking the guesswork out of entrepreneurship by giving early entrepreneurs and startups the permission to ask for guidance from their talented neighbors, instead of wasting their time searching on the internet or attending countless networking events. We see the value in what our experts, mentors, and peers do every day. Accomplish is here to help them monetize this, bringing an additional income for our experts and knowledge abound for our entrepreneurs.
13% of future Entrepreneurs want to launch a new technology, but don't know how to take the next step. 46% believe they lack the skills and knowledge to be a successful Entrepreneur. With this being the way of our future, how do we help these entrepreneurs defy the odds stacked against them when 70% of venture-backed startups FAIL within 5 years?
Accomplish is a marketplace app that provides Entrepreneurs and Startups with on-demand conversations from mentors, peers, and experts. We do this first by tagging each user's "hot words:" skills, interests, notable work places, challenges, goal, and accomplishments, and allowing a free text search of all fellow users up to a 30 mile radius. Each user's availability is noted (with the goal of initiating a conversation right now), as well as their exact distance from you, and their peer reviewed average meeting rating and endorsements of their advertised skills. By allowing and encouraging peer review after each meeting, we are ensuring only the highest caliber mentors, experts, and peers stay on the app for worthwhile conversations. A meeting is scheduled and the time is tracked down to the minute using an in-app timer. For those who have earned Expert status, they are paid for their time automatically, securely, and in-app based on a prorated amount calculated from their set hourly rate and the time spent in the meeting.
The startup economy is emergent and we're here to level it up. The greater majority of recent college graduates said that they intend to start their own business, instead of working for someone else. This is evident by roughly a third of our workforce being freelancers, set to be the majority in the next decade.
