First time founder
I'm in the process of building a Beta platform with a tech-cofounder (Classmate from college). Our vision is to build a social marketplace platform to meet the needs of mass affluent & low-HNI investors. This is a niche segment but an under-serviced segment. The principle problem is that of multiple fragmented sources of product information & advice , apart from the problem of "simply too many options". We want to include Product Manufacturers (Banks/Funds/Real Estate/Alternative) along with Advisors, to help the Investors get the best possible product, information/research, advice & execution mechanism.
We're looking for Product Manager & Digital marketing Co-founder(s), as these are critical functions . We have started MVP buildout with a small team. We've engaged a UI/UX designer with whom we've churned out some cool stuff, and are therefore more confident that we will have a solid first-cut. But it's not abt the starting point: it's about how we evolve and take market feedback & needs to grow this business.
Looking for passionate individuals, with a strong purpose & sense of commitment to their core skills. Ability to make things happen, "Can-do" headset with a realistic balance of what is worth trying. Exposure to finance and wealth would be a bonus but not a pre-requisite. Understanding of web2.0 models, social media channels, power of content, enabling networks to trust & learn from each other, in tune with latest product trends, are more necessary.
Personally, I've worked across US, UK, Middle-east, India & SG, and come with a global mindset/headset. Open to new ideas, as the platform & the end-user(in our case the investor) is the single most important driving force. Looking forward to meeting some bright , motivated team players, who can complement and make this an A-team with a purpose/plan/execution rigour!
