GoDaddy, Internet domain registrar and web hosting company, has launched a community-based app for entrepreneurs, called Flare to help them bring their business ideas to life. Flare enables to share ideas and get guidance from friends, fellow entrepreneurs and experts in an exciting and collaborative way, providing an immediate resource to receive feedback and drive new concepts or ideas forward.
“GoDaddy seeks to inspire budding entrepreneurs and the start-up community in India to chase their dreams. Flare is where the seeds of ideas go to be nurtured and developed.” Said Rajiv Sodhi, the Managing Director and Vice President of GoDaddy at Indian and Australia.
The features of the app are similar to Tinder’s swipe. Swipe left to “skip,” swipe right to “snooze” or tap to learn more and “love” an idea. The login of the app can be done through Facebook and LinkedIn also makes it easier for users to identify themselves.
Tina Nguyen, Direct of Product Management said- “We created Flare because we recognize that whether you’ve just had a fleeting thought and want to explore where you might be able to take it, or you’ve been dreaming of starting your own business, Flare is the first place to go for someone that wants to the take the next step.”
Flare have a feature called Top Charts that showcases the top 20 most popular ideas within the Flare community on a given day that helps to make it easier for entrepreneurs to gain supporters for their ideas.
It also enables people to give back to the community in the app by becoming advisors. People can share their knowledge in a given field or discipline with others seeking advice. By supporting a concept, advisors can play an active role during its developmental journey.
Followers of an idea can also pledge to be a future customer, providing a valuable signal to the entrepreneur about demand and marketability of new product or service.
