As a startup you have a limited budget and a limited window of time to bring your ideas to market. For that reason it’s important that you use the best tools available to execute your vision.
Many startups, in one form or another, are “connecting the right people to the right content”. Some common models for startups include:
Whether news, music, literature or food, many startups provide new ways for people to discover things. With ACE, it’s easy to create recommendations based on your domain expertise in your subject matter. ACE will incorporate your knowledge of why a particular news item, restaurant or book might be of interest to an individual, and will automate recommendations around it.
Matchmaking sites are focussed on finding good matches for people. The matchmaking model is best known through dating sites, but also includes job and apartment search web sites. In the matchmaking model, you have a two (or more) sided market, with your job being to create matches between the sides.
