New York, New York, US
Hey everyone! My name is Brandon and I'm an avocado-obsessed tech entrepreneur from Queens NY with an unapologetic love for creating innovative products and services that inspire action and long-term adoption.
My concept focuses on the restaurant and fast-casual industry in the form of a viral mobile-loyalty application that generates a unique awareness to multiple streams of interested users that results in more foot traffic and brand awareness. At this moment, I have the concept mapped out as well as a name and brand development plan.
I am seeking a mobile programmer/developer who is familiar with e-commerce and social networking. The goal is to develop a functional MVP (Minimum Viable Product) that we can introduce to test partners (restaurants) to gather metrics and helpful insights that will be presented for rounds of investment.
The initial market will be New York, NY.
Please let me know if you have any questions or thoughts about this venture and I'd be happy to answer them!
