Challenge - Building A direct-to-customer (DTC) Personalized Recommendation Platform That Delivers Value To Customers
Markus & Morten aimed to build a personalized recommendation platform to help millions of users narrow the universe of streaming to their unique tastes. Following this, they want to reinvent the old-age or inauthentic content recommendation approach.They decided to create Friendspire - a collaborative filtering platform which would facilitate searching, saving, and sharing great content with friends and family.
The pursuit of a flawless team begins
The road to success for a product idea is never easy, and it was no exception for Morten and Markus. They had an innovative plan to venture into the recommendation market but lacked the right technology partner to bring their vision to life. Eventually, they turned to Debut Infotech to help them build a robust app for both iOS and Android platforms.
Our team of skilled developers in India not only comprehended the idea rapidly but also probed further to assess the practicality of specific features and proposed workflows. This gave the duo the confidence they needed to move forward.
Finding the right technology partner is key to turning a great idea into a successful product, and Debut Infotech helped Markus and Morten achieve that.
Result- Seed Funding & Early Stage VC
Friendspire, the social platform for recommendations that assists users in discovering movies, TV shows, books, and podcasts based on their friends' suggestions, has successfully garnered a seed capital of $300K in March 2020, and a further $260K in April 2021.
All in all, Friendspire's success is a testament to the power of social recommendations and the importance of having the right tech partners like Debut Infotech to bring a unique product idea to life. With its innovative approach and dedicated team, Friendspire is poised for continued success and growth in the years to come.
