Created a Product Roadmap
Looking for developers
Looking for consultants
Looking for investors
+ 2
Hello 👋 ,

Just wanted to let you know that starting today I will be building a new startup.

I'll challenge myself for 3 months in order to come up with a working MVP and get my first paying client. Since I have a pile of valid business ideas in my notebook, I decided to go with one that I have had since my first time raising capital for my startups. 

The idea is a very simple CRM tool where startup founders can easily manage their investment pipeline and keep their prospective investors in the loop with periodic updates. 

When you run a company with 500+ investors, it's very hectic to always answer those redundant questions coming up to your mailbox about the current status of their investments. Maintaining a contact list on any newsletter mailing system can also be challenging, providing metrics on a periodic basis could also frustrating, but building a dashboard that connects everything is fun.

Starting today, I will craft a project brief and post it over Upwork with initial MVP requirements, I will code some stuff on my own but I have been rusty over the years.

If you're a developer, ping me we could collaborate. If you're a technical co-founder, ping me I would love to have a partner. If you're an investor, ping me I would love your input on the product and what you're looking for to get from founders regarding your investment.

I will constantly update this space with the progress as I truly believe it's the community that makes any startup boom.

Wish me luck 🍀

Raised a Pre-Seed round
Influencer marketplace Flicron raises $1.07 million via crowdfunding

  • Saudi Arabia-based micro-influencer marketplace Flicron has closed its second equity crowdfunding round, worth SAR4 million ($1.07 million), from Manfaa Capital.
  • Founded in 2018 by Abdullah Al-Zehairi and Hashem Zahran, Flicron connects brands with a network of influencers, who promote the brand or its products on social media. Brands upload a brief onto Filcron’s platform and influencers then create content for it. The brands only pay for the content they approve. 
  • Flicron claims to have amassed over 9,000 micro-influencers, connecting them to more than 400 small, medium and large businesses. 
  • The startup will use the investment to expand its reach across Saudi Arabia and the wider Middle East region and attract further brands and influencers to its platform.

I'm super excited to check out Polywork as one of the first early adopters. Oh and btw IO is by far the most superior of the AI-Assistants! 🔥 😎 🤖
